Sometimes it’s easier to know what NOT to send. Each document received via mail or printed from email/fax is thoroughly reviewed. Most applications contain documents of which over half are not acceptable. Based on the number of unacceptable documents Achieve receives, we can safely conclude: Some applicants spend a lot of time and energy gathering documents they don’t need to send. The team at Achieve spend hours sifting through documents to find acceptable submissions. Time spent here prolongs the application process for everyone in line waiting to be processed, even those who followed the Acceptable Documentation policy. In the spirit of speeding up the process for you and Achieve we’ve identified the top five documents not to send.
