    Police check and medical for 489

    Hi all, We should hopefully get a decision from South Australia for subclass 489 SS latest 28th November 2018 (20 weeks from date of application). However, my wife, son, and I will be on holiday overseas from 1st December 2018. I will return to UK 5th January 2019, but my wife and son will be staying on until 1st week in March 2019. If we are lucky enough to get sponsored by South Australia, my fear is we get asked to provide police checks and medicals whilst we are away. This could delay the proces by up to 3 months, which I would like to avoid if possible. My question is; should I arrange police checks and medicals for November 2018 so that we are covered for every eventuality without delaying the process, or wait until all of us are back in the UK and get the checks done in March 2019? Conscious doing it before we go away is a somewhat risky approach as we could be forking out for the checks without actually knowing if we will obtain state sponsorship. Also aware that this will give us less time to validate our visa, although not so concerned with this as we would jump on a flight the next day after our visa came through (if necessary).
  2. Hey Poms! First post. Just wanted to share my application situation for anyone going through a similar experience. Sorry it's long! I was originally in Aus on a year working/holiday visa, that turned to two after I realised a year just wasn't long enough! I met my now partner in the first few months of my first year when I was working with him for his family, we started dating seriously after another few months and I fell pregnant at the end of my first year here. My second year was spent saving up for upcoming arrival of bub and the expense of a partner visa (ouch!), while still having and enjoying amazing experiences in FNQ. I applied for de facto visa in December 2017. I had at this point only uploaded the basics, form 80, my passport and birth certificate, photographs of us together, proof that we had been living together for over a year, our son's birth certificate (born september 2017), proof of joint bank account and joint ownership of a car. I received confirmation of them receiving the application and was approved a bridging visa within a couple of weeks. I was sent a Request for More Information on 26 Feb 2018, a lot sooner than I was expecting! Immigration wanted; AFP checks for both of us, I applied online and received these fairly quickly; UK police check for myself, I applied online and have as of yet not received it in the post; Partner's/Sponsor's Birth Certificate, He didn't have one but again, applied online and received and uploaded quickly; Form 888(witness statement), I had one of these and was waiting for the other, Uploaded on signed by JP and haven't been asked for another?!; Form 40sp, printed and had partner fill it out (reluctantly, he hates paperwork); Immigration Health Assesment (Medical, chest Xray, HIV test) I slowly worked through and uploaded most of these, on 07 Feb 2018 I received another Request for More Information asking for the rest of what I hadn't gotten around to yet. I was pretty impressed to be honest as I wasn't expecting this much correspondence, especially this early into the application. I was quoted 17-24 months process time, they seem to be working quite fast. I am now just waiting on my UK police check and my medical, which is tomorrow! I am currently 4 months pregnant with bub no.2 so was advised by Bupa to choose not to have chest X-ray until after the new tiny human is born. They even suggested that 9/10 times they will not even ask me to go ahead with the X-ray after, which is going to save me a few dollars. Fingers crossed. That's me and my situation. I will update as soon as I hear back from them after my medical and have uploaded UK police check. I'm looking forward to finding out whether they'll keep processing at the rate of knots they are, or, once I've given them everything they need, they spend the next 19 months ignoring me and leaving me in limbo! Good luck with all your endeavours!

    Front loading Medicals and PC???

    Hi all, So we have submitted our application for a 190 visa to SA on the 2/2/18, we are yet to hear anything back but we are looking to be moving as soon as possible!! We have just accepted an offer on our house and will be moving in to a rental accommodation (worst case we don't get a visa and we need a bigger house in the uk anyway (hope it doesn't come to that)). We are seriously considering front loading our medicals, police checks and form 80 to speed up the process but our agent is being very cautious. We know that you have 12 months from the date that you do the medicals and PC but if we front load them May/June we will have already had our application submitted 4-5 months out of the 9-12 month wait time and since we will have already sold the house is there much worry in submitting these before they ask us for them?
  4. Hi Guys, I am just wondering wheather the case officer always ask for the medical and police clearence report if those expires. I would appreciate if you guys can share your experiences, ideas & information on this issue. Thanks. Princemp

  6. Hello, we applied in November 2016 for Visa 864, so that's a year ago now. Does anyone know roughly the time it takes?
  7. Good Morning! I have a question which has been asked 100 times on here but as ever my case is slightly different from all the rest! I am currently in the very early stages of getting a PR visa via sponsorship. Unfortunately I have just become aware of the issues which can arise from having leaning disabilities and having your visa granted. My son is just under 2.5 years old and has speech delay he was referred to a Speech therapist who decided he should attend a learn and grown group rather than having therapy at this stage. In general he does the majority of what a child should at his age it is really just his speech. So the big question is...are we likely to get our visa? Has anyone else had the same circumstance? as most I see on here are from people who's children have been diagnosed with Autism etc and are a little older. One other thing which I thought of was whether it is possible to agree to pay for any costs my child will incur due to his speech delay once in Australia such as paying for any therapy or extra schooling he may need? Is this even possible? Many thanks for anybody's input I have also emailed George Lombard but there is nothing like peoples personal experiences!
  8. Hi all Yesterday I was shocked to be diagnosed with colitis. I dont think I have it badly, as feel well in myself etc and am still at work/at the gym etc. My OH has just passed his Vetassess practical in carpentry, and we were planning to apply for a 175/176 visa on 1 July. My question to anyone out there is whether my condition will stop our migration plan in its tracks. Dont want to waste 5k on applying, if it is known that they wont accept me, but equally dont want to fall at the first hurdle. Having only had this disease for a coupla months, I guess its difficult to say how the condition will effect me long-term, so am worried about how to prove anything to the medics. That said, the rate visas are getting processed, it could concievably be 2 years before my meds are requested, right. By which time, more would be known about my condition, I guess. Any advice gratefully received! Many thanks...:embarrassed: Tig

    Medical Matters

    We are currently at 26 months waiting for class 143. My wife looks as if she is going to need medical investigations. This will obviously feature in any medical report. If the case worker eventually makes contact soon, what do we say? God forbid we go to the back of the queue. I would assume they will tell us to get it fixed and come back to them. Help please!!!

    Medical Treatment

    I have the opportunity to move to Australia with work and was wondering what the situation is with medical treatment. For example if I need to see a GP or am admitted to hospital etc. Obviously in the UK this is free under the NHS but what is the deal in Australia please?

    Medical help

    Hi, ive just completed my medical on wednesday and got an updated on emedical saying completed, on all 3 things. And on the immi website saying that "health clearance provided- no action needed". I won't get a case officer probably for another 5 months, but was told to do my medical by a friend after 4 months of submitting my defacto visa I'm a bit worried about the medical it says that I'm good just now until a co is assigned, but do you know if I had a serious disease that they would tell me or wait until co is assigned, like if I had hiv, and they tell me 5 months down the line that my visa is refused I'd be a bit pissed of as it's a serious disease thanks
  12. Hi Guys. My wife has applied a partner visa 309 on 28 June 2016. The application is in the final stages. Today she receive the email that your medicals are not valid after 1 year. Online immiaccount showing medical is clear for the processing of this visa. My query is that the visa processing has been delayed by the immigration deptt then why should one undergo the medical checkup again? Does it happen to anyone else who are waiting for decision for more than 12 months?
  13. Hi I will be submitting my EOI soon for 189 Visa. My partner will be included in my application. Once the EOI is submitted, we will arrange medical examinations. Does my partner need to have the medical too? I have my HAP ID as I have already signed up to E-Medical via my Immi Account. I can't work out if my partner also needs to sign up to E-Medical to get her own HAP ID. She isn't applying for her own visa, as she is part of my application. I had to select which visa I was applying for when I registered with E-Medical, but obviously my partner won't be applying for the visa herself, I couldn't see anywhere to include her.... Any advice please?

    where does everyone go for medicals?

    Hi all, where does everyone applying for visas go to get their medicals done?
  15. My husband, 1 year old baby and myself are in the process of applying for a 176 visa. Ielts passed, skills assessment complete, case officer assigned. Then the bombshell. My husband has a 12 year old daughter who he sees 2-3 times a year if hes lucky. Immigration are saying she is our dependant child but she isnt as her mother has legal custody. Anyway DIAC are saying she needs a medical even though she is not migrating with us. The problem is there is no way on this earth her mother will let her have a health check for the sake of us moving to Australia. We have hit a brick wall big time and dont know where to go from here, DIAC just keep telling me she has got to have the check end of storey. Has anyone else been in this situation?? please get in touch if you have, would love to hear how you delt with it. Thanks Vicky :arghh:
  16. All Wonder if someone can throw light on issue I have I am about to file an application with DIAC for 176. However, my OH has heart condition called "Cardiomyopathy" and have ICD ( cardio defibrilator) implanted. What experiences does anyone have of this

    Police and Health Checks

    Hi Help appreciated please. Does anyone have any UK experience and can answer for me... 1. Do DIBP tend to ask for Police and medical checks/clearance? 2. If these are not ready at the time you apply for a visa, can the visa be rejected due to information being submitted after the 60 day limit? 3. Any idea how long it takes to get a Police check in the UK? Many Thanks Jobee1

    Do I need a medical for a 189 visa?

    Hi guys! just had my invite to apply for a 189 skilled independent visa, so I'm very excited! the question is... Do I need to get a medical before applying? It's not on the checklist, so does that mean I don't need one, or do I get one later on? I have 56 days left to apply for the visa. also, does anyone know if you can scan a passport photo for your police check? Or do you need to take a picture to upload? many thanks sarah

    G6PD difiency issues.(medical issues)

    Hi all. just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with a child/adult with the G6PD bloody deficiency? We had completed and submitted our medicals. But as my son has G6PD which is basically an allergy to broad beans and some medications, we have been asked for further information. i have obtained my sons medical history, but and unable to obtain a recent assessment carried out by a G6PD specialist. Has anyone else had this issue? We have had to submit to e-health what we have, without the assessment. I am worried that this is going to cause us to have our visa rejected. So frustrating as this is the last hurdle to gain our visa. We've contacted everyone we can and no one is able to provide this for us.
  21. Hoping for advise, my husband is Australian by birth and has an Aussie passport. There doesn't seem to be a problem getting citizenship by descent for the children, he is listed as Australian on their birth certificates. Therefore the three of them could I believe go to Aussie without any problems. I however am English and have to apply for a Partner visa. Looking at the form it appears that all four of us have to pass the medical. That's the problem my son has a rare chromosome disorder(Potocki lupski syndrome), Autism and severe learning difficulties basically he'll never be independent. Given that the 3 of them could just hope on a plane without me. Do they still need to Take/pass the medical, for me to go? if no-one knows do you know who I can ask before I fork out the £2,600(Yikes!).
  22. We've been getting paperwork together for our ENS 186 application for almost a year now. At first we were aiming for making a 189 application however delays with the skills assessment meant we passed the two year mark of working with our sponsor so decided to change to making a 186 application. We did medicals for my partner and I and his two non-dependent children who live outside of Australia, but I didn't do the chest xray as I was pregnant at the time. Our daughter was born in July and I completed my chest xray shortly afterwards. We have gotten her passport and added her to our 457 visa so we're now finally at a point where submission of our 186 application is near. Our problem is that we're not sure how to go about getting a HAP ID for her so she can do a medical. The application on our Immi account that we got our HAP IDs through has already been submitted for the rest of us to get our HAP ID's and I cannot see anywhere that this can be edited so that our baby can be added. Do we create a new Immi account just for her? Or just create a new application under our current immi account and include my husband as the primary applicant? If we did that would my husband (or possibly all of us) then have to redo his(our) medical(s)? Or should we just submit the application and wait for the CO to request her to do a medical? Apologies for all the questions, haven't been able to find any information online relevant to our situation and our agent is proving difficult to get an answer out of on this.

    Medical in Wollongong

    Hi all, Just wanted to share my experience with you. Quite recently I had my medical in Wollongong- great experience, no wait time and very efficient. I have since recommended it to a few of my friends and they all had the same reports. I have heard that Sydney CBD and Parramatta can have wait time as long as 2 hours which would be pretty painful. So if you can, go the Gong and make a day of it! Parking is pretty easy to find and also quite reasonable! Good luck to all

    Parental Visa Medical Examinations

    My parents are immigrating to Australia and will need to go through the medical process. Does anyone know what checks are completed and/or what the immigration department look for specifically? Thanks
  25. Hi we have been advised by an agent that we are likely to get turned down for a visa because our 3 year old son is disabled. He has global developmental delay and autism. He cannot walk or talk yet but is on his way to learning to walk. He is not on any medication and has no need of medical help apart from speech therapy and physiotherapy which we provide. He does have a statement for educaional needs. Just wondering if anyone else has been in similar situation and have you any advice? Riggers
