Medical Matters

    Recommended Posts

    We are currently at 26 months waiting for class 143. My wife looks as if she is going to need medical investigations. This will obviously feature in any medical report. If the case worker eventually makes contact soon, what do we say? God forbid we go to the back of the queue. I would assume they will tell us to get it fixed and come back to them.


    Help please!!!

    Hi Ian, @Richard Gregan has a few medical advisors to hand it may be worth while dropping him a line. Personally I wouldn't say anything unless you have a diagnosis.

    If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

    You are probably the best part of a year away from needing to do medicals. However, if your wife has anything that could have a negative effect on the medical it is best to get professional advice sooner rather than later. The department don't mind ill health per se. What they are looking for is something that is likely to have a significant cost to the Oz health system. If any investigations show something that may, then you need to speak to a specialist agent such as George Lombard

        Hello, we applied in November 2016 for Visa 864, so that's a year ago now. Does anyone know roughly the time it takes?

        I have the opportunity to move to Australia with work and was wondering what the situation is with medical treatment.
        For example if I need to see a GP or am admitted to hospital etc.
        Obviously in the UK this is free under the NHS but what is the deal in Australia please?

        ive just completed my medical on wednesday and got an updated on emedical saying completed, on all 3 things. And on the immi website saying that "health clearance provided- no action needed".  
        I won't get a case officer probably for another 5 months, but was told to do my medical  by a friend after 4 months of submitting my defacto visa
        I'm a bit worried about the medical it says that I'm good just now until a co is assigned, but do you know if I had a serious disease that they would tell me or wait until co is assigned, like if I had hiv, and they tell me 5 months down the line that my visa is refused I'd be a bit pissed of as it's a serious disease

        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?

        I will be submitting my EOI soon for 189 Visa. My partner will be included in my application. Once the EOI is submitted, we will arrange medical examinations. Does my partner need to have the medical too? I have my HAP ID as I have already signed up to E-Medical via my Immi Account. I can't work out if my partner also needs to sign up to E-Medical to get her own HAP ID. She isn't applying for her own visa, as she is part of my application.
        I had to select which visa I was applying for when I registered with E-Medical, but obviously my partner won't be applying for the visa herself, I couldn't see anywhere to include her....
        Any advice please?
