Are health examinations needed before lodging for a partner visa?

I've been reading so much about this and everyone says different things in regards to whether I need to get a health check done now before I lodge my visa or if I can wait until after?

I am applying for a partner visa in Australia (I am British).

All it says in the document checklist is:

Health and character documents
If you are required to undergo health examinations, you must organise your health examinations upfront before lodging a visa application and include your health identifier (HAP ID) when completing your visa application form.

How do I know if I am required to or not?

Any help will be hugely appreciated.

Although you can do the medical before lodging your visa (through the My Health Declarations section of the DIBP website), it's recommended that you don't. Most partner applications take 10-14 months and the medical will likely expire before the visa is granted, so you'd have to retake them and pay a second time if you did them before applying.

You'll need to do a medical but I wouldn't do yours until a CO requests it.

If you want to do it now then you'll run the risk of them expiring and needing to redo them like Maggie said.
