Hi JandE - thank you for sharing that information.We didn't get any request for medicals, but submitted them within two months anyway, after hearing that fully completed applications get priority.
On our latest visa, (the 801) I noticed that the IMMI account mentioned that they were waiting for something from us; but I hadn't had any request, so I asked them what they needed.
We got the visa grant the next month, with no other reply.
Would you be able to share how you communicated with the department to ask what they needed?
Hoping to cajole some action on my visa too
