Do I need a medical for a 189 visa?

Recommended Posts

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

Yes, you need a medical for a 189 visa. Whether you do it ahead of applying or after is up to you. Typically the Must Enter Date to activate your visa is 12 months after you complete the medical/police checks, whichever is first. So if you want a longer period to activate your visa, you may want to wait until these are requested although that will likely delay the process a bit.

 

I know you can scan the passport photo for the visa application, but not sure about the police check as I didn't need a photo for mine.

May be a bit late to answer, but yes you can scan a passport pic for your PCC (assuming it is a UK one?)

I did it and the application was fine.
