Yes it is recommended to wait for requests for Medicals and police checks. A lot of people also upload them around 3-6 months after applying too, which is probably what we will do. Either option is fine. The risk of uploading when first applying is they could potentially expire. So waiting at least a few months is safe.We waited until we were contacted on Sep 26th. Obtained police and FBI checks within a week, and medical within 3 weeks. It;s best to wait until they contact you for that info as you never know how long it will take for them to contact you.
I believe you can do the medical at any time. You dont need to wait for a CO to request it. After submitting an application, there should be a button under health, where you are able to generate a HAP ID number, where you can then proceed to organise Medicals.Well, the police and FBI you can do soon. The medical I had to wait until contacted for the department to give me my medical ID number and form to make an appointment at an approved clinic.
