Medical for 309 after 12 months

Recommended Posts

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?

Did you do them before you were asked for them?  Medicals for all visas are only valid for 1 year that is why you are advised to wait until your case officer asks for them

The immigration department advice - as do those who have been helping on the forum for years - not to get a medical done until the case officer requests it. Doing them early has no benefit on speed as they just sit in the background until the request would have been made but does lead to situations like this.

She will have to redo her medical

Yes, the immigration deptt advise me to undertake the medical on the HAP ID letter they have email on 29 June 2016 and given us 28 days timeline.

Now they have taken more than one year in sorting out our case and I am not sure whether i should argue with them on this. Any advice?

Reply and explain this. They may extend it, they may not. You can only ask.
