Partner Visa/Health Examination

Hi everyone,

Completing a partner visa online application onshore. I am getting to the Health Requirements part and I am very confused. I rang the immigration earlier this week asking about it and they told me I could submit my application and if there is any need of medical tests, my CO will let me know.

I did fill up My Health Declaration form on my immi account though but I did encounter several issues. First, I could not retrieve a referral letter to print out. I actually dont know why but it is what it is. So I removed my Health Declaration from the ImmiAccount but I didnt save my HAP number as I thought it will issue a new one if I completed a second Health Declaration form. I then read on the website that you will need the HAP number to log in onto the emedical website but i cannot find it anywhere. The immigration website is pretty confusing about it as it states that I can still lodge my application and be asked for medical exam later on if needed.

My second concern is that I have worked a lot to save for the price of the visa and I would actually prefer to take my health examination a bit later as i am getting a bit tight money wise. Also my visa ends in a month and I would not want to waste time as i am sure processing time for medical results can take a while.

Now I am worried to submit my application and be told that I should have done my health examination before.

Can I still lodge my visa application and take my health exams once my CO requires me to do so?

I know every case is different but as an example, my friend applied for a visa last year -we are from the same country- and she's got a visa approved before getting a medical results

I just dont want to be in trouble. I suppose, your CO will let you know if something is wrong.

I do not want my visa to be refused only for some online misunderstanding.

Thank you

These days if you are lodging an onshore partner visa I wouldn't bother doing my health check beforehand. Processing times are quite lengthy so there is a chance that you will need to do the heath check again.

Just wait to be asked by the CO - they will then give you a HAP id and you can then go onto the BUPA website and organise the exam.

They will NOT approve a partner visa until you have completed a medical check. It's a requirement of the visa. Some visas do not require people to do health checks e.g non permanent visas.
