Recommended Posts

hello pommy friends :) we have been in the process of moving from aberdeen to sydney two and a half years now.... our police checks have come back and sent off, last step is medicals in 5 weeks. Can anyone tell me how long it took for your visa to arrive AFTER your medical? and on the day of your medical ( for permanent residence visa) do you get any sort of information about how it went and results and things? were very excited our house is up for sale and our two children under 7 cannot wait!!!!! cheers , jodz x

Hi we had our meds on march 4 2011 and are still waiting for our visa. My 7 year old sons has been referred as he is small for his age. At the medicals all went well and doc said there were no problems. We have now had to take him to a specialist and have a report done we are now waiting for the report to be sent to panel doctor who will then send to diac. So it can take ages or it can be staight forward and grant within days you can never tell. By the way there is nothing wrong with my son he is totally healthy so sometimes they can just be picky. Good luck with yours.

Hi, I have been reading with interest your posts re your son and the issues you have had with his medicals because he is short, and as you have said, has no medical problems just short for his age, I have children 2 of whom are small for their age, like you, nothing wrong with them, they just small, like me, I am only 5ft and weigh 7 stone so am very petite, my son who is 13 is very small for his age and skinny as can be as he is a footballer and bmx (er) so constantly active, my 8 year old is in age 5/6 clothes as small like me, their father is not exactly large only 5ft 10 ish and slim build, surely they must take this into account when assessing children?? :arghh:

nothing to it, we went to manchester they where really nice. we had a little eye test, water sample and a blood test. had to undress to our underwear but had a sheet over us, the doctor just check our tummies and moved our arms and legs about looked in our mouths, then went and had our xrays. it took just over an hour for the three of us. there really is nothing to worry about.

Hi there, my son is nearly 8 and he is in age 5-6 clothes. I think what happened is our other boys are all the right height and weight for there age and my 6 year old son is taller than his older brother. Thats all i can put it down to anyway. We have seen a specialist who is now doing a report for DIAC so we are back to waiting yet again. As you say the specialist did take into consideration my husband and my height and asked other question regarding pubity and also did an xray of my son hand to access bone growth rate but all is well and thats what counts. Hope all goes well for you.
