Visa Medical

Recommended Posts

Hi all just looking for some clarity. I got my medical for a student visa in July 2020 as I due to start my course in January 2021. I then had to defer the intake to July 2021 and was issued a new visa. If I have to defer again to January 2022 and apply for a new visa will this medical still be valid or will I need a new medical? How long does the medical last for? Thanks in advance for any response 😊

Generally the medical lasts a year. Case officers have some discretion to extend this in some cases.

Thank you. So do you think if I deferred in say June and applied for the new visa it would still be valid?

I would say that would be very unlikely

I'd have thought if you're a healthy "typical student age" there may be some discretion if you're dealing with a case officer but it will be "computer says no" 9/10 times.

Pure forum speculation of course but it is Friday afternoon.

Thank you!! I’m a mature student (33) 😳 but I am fit and healthy so suppose I’ll have to wait and see or pray that we travel before July 🙏🏼
