Hi Carer_836 how’s your application? Some good news from immi? 

Hi KarenCarer836,

I received a letter 1st week of November and Home Affairs asked me for a new letter from GP/Specialist to evaluate if a carer is still needed for my case.They also asked for Form 1022 and Form 40.I received a letter 2 weeks later and they ask for a new Medical Examinations for me and (my immediate family which is in overseas) and AFP Clearance also also some Stat Dec.

Didn't received a new letter recently.

How about you?Have you also received a letter?You are well within the queue period.

 

Best regards.

Hi there KarenCarer_836,

Good day too!

I know it's quite hard to get an appointment with BUPA but the Immigration understand that.Did you already have an appointment with BUPA as of today?

Don't worry Karen we are only few requirements away.Just do the things they ask and we will be fine.

Keep us updated and also will do the same.

Cheers Karen and best regards.

Where have u booked your appointment? As far as i know everywhere are booked out n the earliest is feb. So I went to Baulkham Hills for my medical check, it's the only place has appointment. If u dont mind travel may be book a bit far like Wollongong. Just check if they have vacancy afterward just cancel tge previous booking

I already did my medical examination around 3rd week of November.But Immigration also required medical examination for my wife and daughter which is in overseas.Travel within our home country is a bit difficult as there are some cities that have high covid cases.So that makes it a bit tricky.But we already have made an appointment early February.You are right Bryan that is what I did,I made a booking then check the available appointments once in a while and when you see an earlier appointment just rebook your previous appointment.I did my medical in Parramatta.

Just got told from my agent that I can't get carer's allowance for the first 2 years of being PR, neither can work. ūüė•

If anyone know if it's true. This is really tough and strange.

Hi Bryan!

I think that is the reason if¬†you check the overview of the Carer Visa on DHA website ¬†it says that,‚ÄĚbe sponsored by a relative or spouse for the first 2 years because you won‚Äôt¬†get Carer Allowance¬†from Centrelink for 2 years.But I am not sure because you already been in Australia more than that.If your partner is here,ask¬†her to look after the Caree so you can work.Read about Form 1005 you can ask to change Bridging visa conditions so you can work.But I think its only applicable when your on Bridging visa.Im not sure.Ask advice from your agent if you can do¬†that.

 

Best regards.

Hi Bryan! So you got your PR Now? Anyway congrats but what is your visa condition? Are you still not allowed to work? I thought PR has no condition? In my case my husband is the main applicant but since Im with him here in Australia with our son, my husband give a work of rights full time and I’m not allowed to work, but  i know someone also a carer and she got her Pr and has no condition she said she can work.

Hey karen, my pr landed after one day I paid the Fee. I went to centerlink and sorted out, so I can work but can't get carer payment for the first two years.

Hello! 
We called bupa last 2 days ago to follow up but this is what they say. We are currently still working through our backlog of applicants waiting for appointment. They apologised because of the delay. So what do we do just to be patient.
