    LRR & Medicals/Police Checks

    Hi All My first posting but have been following for a few months and its a great forum with lots of useful information. I applied for my LLR visa last year from offshore and have queue date which would put me in the 1.5 to 2.5 years bracket (based on the table http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/family/other-family-visa-queue.htm ). Not great but better than the 6 years that it looked like it could be. However I have already done the medicals and the police check (at the request of the CO) before it all went pear shaped around July. So my question is what do you think the likelyhood is of having to do them again - not bothered redoing but at a few houndred quid a time it's not a cheap process. I have asked if there would be a refund but the responce was (understandably) guarded as it said '...as appropriate...'. Also does anyone know if there will be a queue like the parent visa that tells you how many people are ahead of you? And if I can stretch to one more - when will the immi site be updated to reflect 2011-2012 figures and priorities. Thanks in advance for any replies Arilla
  2. we've been asked by our case officer to get medicals and police checks done for a second time. we did the first set when we applied for our 886 visa two years ago, following the advice of someone on the DIAC phoneline. they expired whilst we were waiting to be processed. it was really exciting to get this phone call, as i had almost given up hope of them ever processing any of the 886 (onshore state sponsored) visas. but we are pretty pissed off to have to shell out another $500 (for a couple), through no fault of our own. can anyone suggest if there's any potential of complaining about this and who to complain to? i guess i should keep my mouth shut until if and when the residence appears!! but i imagine a lot of people are gonna be in this same position...
  3. Hi all we applied for a 175 in April. We did not do medicals or police checks due to the year expiry of them. Was wondering if it is now worth doing them as I see that march 09 applicants are getting cos and visas granted. Also if we do them will are visa be dated from time of medical or date of visa grant? thanks em
  4. Hi all Does anyone know how long the case officer gives you to get a medical & police check done? We submitted our application 15th August 2008 but wanted to wait for the c/o to request the medicals/Police checks from us as we know they are only valid for 1 year. Any advice would be appreciated. Lisa
  5. Hi there! Can anyone tell me at what stage of the application process the medicals and the police checks take place please? Is it after the visa application has been put in or do they have to be submitted with it? Cheers

    Medicals/Police checks

    Hi can anyone tell me when is the best time to get police checks and medicals done. Just thinking of trying to speed the process (if possible). Do they tell you where and when to get them done? Lisa x
