How long for 47SK application?get medical & police done

Recommended Posts

Guest Brookesy

Hello peeps,

 

Does anyone have experience of sending a 47SK off and know how long it took to come bcak?

 

Also, do you get some sort of notification it has been received? I was going to get my medical and police check done soon but if i send them off in the post how will they tie it up with my 47SK already sent?

 

Whats the shelf life of a medical and a police check?

 

Any help would be great,

 

Cheers Mark.

Hi Mark

 

The medical and police checks are valid for one year so the earlier you do them the shorter time you will have to be in australia to validate the visas.

 

Once you send off your general application (we were skilled independant 136) you get an email acknowleding receipt within approx 3 weeks. You then wait approx 3-4 months for a case officer to be assigned asking you to go for meds/police checks. If you do front load them you need to be aware that police checks go to adelaid and medicals get sent by the doctor (not you) to Sydney where they get processed by a central clearance unit.

 

Hope this helps

Hi Mark

 

I make no secret of not understanding (and not being involved with) applications for skilled visas in any of the categories for them.

 

However, is this link any use to you and Patsy?

If not, tell me to butt out and keep my trap shut!

 

Cheers

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

It took DIMIA two weeks to acknowledge my 136 modl visa application.

 

I lodged my visa 7/11

I did my medicals 12/1 (unrequested)

I got PCC's back mid february (unrequested)

Visa granted 8/3

 

In our case it speeded things up to frontload meds and PCC's.

I would not reccomend anyone do this if non-modl, and some people have found it did not speed things up so I wish you good luck with your decision.

Hi Alison1967. We had our acknowledgement of 136 app on 4 April. We have got our police check dated 11 April and have got our medicals (unrequested) next Wed (14). I am debating whether I should delay the medicals or not - I have emailed Adelaide to try and chase but not had a reply yet. Kris is a toolmaker and is on the MODL. Where will I find the appropriate medicals forms if I do not hear from Adelaide?? Thank you. :?

Medical and Xray forms can be printed off the London High Commission website as well as a list of the panel doctors. someone said you had to get htem directly from DIMIA, but you don't, I printed them off the LHC site and we got out visa no probs.
