Health examinations: before or after submitting application for a Partner Visa (820)

Hello everybody:

In this time I'm writting to request for some help if anybody can assist me. I am going to apply for a Partner Visa Onshore (Subclass 820) by the end of November (because my current Visitor Visa expires on December 5th, 2015).

However, I've been reading a lot of information about how to apply and I found that the Migration offical "Checklist" document suggest to arrange the health examinations before applying. But when I talked to an agent and some other friends that have already submitted their applications, they reccomended us to wait until the officer in charge of our application requests us the medical examinations.

My concern is that I am living now in Karratha where I can't access to a place to attend the medical examinations. So if I really need to take them before applying I must go to Perth, which implies to arrange an appointment and flights and everything else.

So, can anybody help me with this? Do I have to take the health examination before or after applying for the Partner Visa?

I appreciate all the help I can receive!!!! Thanks in advance!!!!

Mariella

Since it can take 12 to 14 months for onshore partner visas to be processed, you're better off waiting with the medicals so they don't expire before the application is finalised. Wait maybe 6 months or so unless requested otherwise.
