Panel Doc says there is some upgradation in system where he uploads the medicals and now he is not able to upload/update my wife's Medical. So he had to sent the medical by E-mail

Hello ,
I have applied for Australian student visa and had my medicals on 12-06-2013. My husband has also applied with me as secondary applicant. But during his medicals doctors found a scar on his lung. We have provided complete treatment history and previous x-rays. Doctors are saying that TB is cured. They will forward all the details to health panel in Australia. Plz tell if some has same experience. And how it affects visa outcome of my and my husband

Hi Smily,

I nitice this question has been posted on 4 different threads. Hopefully you read this thread and have realised that cured TB will still mean a delay of 3-4 months as the medical needs to be reviewed and processed by the Global Health Board.

It shouldnt mean its rejected based on the TB but you are up for the 3-4 months delay.

Hi Friends,
I had TB 12 yrs back.
Now i have completed second culture test which is again negative and submitted the report on 25th Nov 13. And again waiting for the decision.
Anyone can inform me how long it will take for the health undertaking form or VISA finalization.

My wife and daughter medical was finalized on 12-09-2012. But mine still was not and in referred state
