Hi there!


Once you are invited, you will be given 60 days to apply for the visa. You do not need to send in your medicals at that time, you will usually be able to send them in after you have lodged the application. The Department of Immigration has considerably changed the way that medicals are now booked and requested so make sure you are familiar with the steps for submitting the medical examination (using eMedical and getting your HAP ID) so that they are submitted appropiately once you make your application!


With regards to a "maximum time" limit, basically the date your Case Officer tells you that you need to submit them by! Generally, if you are outside of Australia you will be given 28 (or 70) days but it can be significantly shorter! I am just saying this as a warning, we would normally recommend that our clients get ready to provide all documents as soon as they can to avoid mishaps.


Good luck!
