Answer:

Generally, when the submission is complete, the status shows "Manuscript submitted" or "Submission completed." Since status descriptions vary across journals, it seems that your target journal uses the status "New submission" to indicate that the submission is complete. If you have received a manuscript ID, you can rest assured that the submission has been received by the journal.
