Can we do the medicals beforehand without the request from the AHC?

Yes you can. However, it advisable to wait until the AHC request it because if you do the medical it's only valid for a period of 12 months only.

So if you don't get the visa within 12 months AHC will ask you to redo a medical after it expires. Haven't seen it in Sri Lanka but i have seen in some other threads where applicants had to submit a second medical.

As far as i know from the forum, the applications are processed according to the DOL. So even if you submit PC/Medical and all documents necessary in the beginning it will not have much of an impact on the speed of the grant. All depends on the case officer and his/her decision.

So for the safe side its better to submit when they request (also saves additional cost on doing a second medical)

And as I said earlier this forum is here to help clear doubts. We don't allow advertisement of competing sites or WhatsApp since that pulls people away from this forum.

If you are interested in skilled migration, this thread isn't relevant since it's about people applying for a partner visa.

Perhaps either post your questions on a thread about skilled migration or start a new thread with your questions.

I dont think overseas missions follow the public holidays of Australia but rather the ones of the country they are in. They follow keys ones of course like Christmas. In Dhaka they work Sunday - Thursday as Friday & Saturday are weekends.

Some holidays vary between states. WA has labour day around March or April whereas NSW on October.

In the previous years the grants have been given within 4 & 1/2 months to 6 months.

However, by 2016 its impossible to give an average processing time because some applicants are still waiting even after almost 10 months.

The public holidays are listed in AHC colombo website and according to that 3rd October is a holiday.

No grants for Sri Lankans it seems.

London AHC is already granting visa to applicants who applied in April 2016
