Health Assessment for Medical Treatment visa (sc. 602)

Recommended Posts

Hi all. My mum has applied for a medical treatment visa while onshore in Australia (she was on a Tourist visa 600). Her Immi account shows a flag next to the visa application and says "Action required - Arrange Health Examinations". But she hasn't received any communication from the department about the Health Examination yet. Should she go ahead and do the health examination or wait for the department to ask for it by email?

I checked with a friend well-versed in visa/immi acount matters and he believes this is a system glitch and that we should not bother with a Health Assessment unless the department sends us a communication asking for it? What do my friends at PomsInOz or a helpful migration agent here advise?

Does she have a formal request (S56 - Request for further information in this case a medical appointment) within the messages area of her Immi Account? I would check there first...

No she does not have a message like that in the messages area of her Immi Account. The only messages there are about a) acknowledgement of application and b) grant of Bridging Visa A. Do you suggest not booking medicals until we receive such a message?

You really should have sought help with an agent for this. 

Well this visa and its requirements are very simple and mum's case is as straightforward as it gets. The only confusion is about immi account so I was hoping someone who's had experience with such a case might be able to advise 🙂
