    So based on this - do your police clearances again now, even if not asked for, and proactively send them through to your CO (especially if it takes a while to get them and doesn't cost much). I'd highly consider doing the medical as well if it has expired. (Obviously it is at your own financial risk though if it expires again in a year or if the visa is refused etc).

    Also - to progress your case, definitely get your local MP to write to the immigration minister (Brendan O'Connor) asking about the case, it will give them a chance to raise its profile. Our local federal MP was all over it straight away. Finally - I'm not a migration agent so is just a friendly tip based on our experience!
    Cheers and good luck!

    Hi aussiegal. We are at 14 months and were advised in writing in January that additional medicals and police clearances weren't required. Our CA just a few weeks ago called and said our high risk security clearance now seems to be ok. Then she said... you have to do another medical etc... !!
    So - according to the immi website it says:

    The department will advise you of the date you are required to enter Australia (your initial entry date) at the time of visa grant. Your initial entry date is usually the same as the expiry date for the validity of either your health or character checks, whichever is the earlier.
