Something to be positive about! xxx
Ok so not so good news...I rang up two day ago to see if our medicals had arrived and finally they have and I was told they have reassessed the processing date they are working on and it is Aug 3rd. I ask how this date can go backwards as I was told it was the end of August the week before and the lady was clearly just passing on the information and unable to provide any further information but in the end I guess why it happened doesn't matter but it has.

Sooooo for PMV Subclass 300 visa medicals they are working on ones from August 3rd. Not quite as quick in getting through the back log as I had hoped.

I emailed them yesterday, so it will be interesting to see if/when they reply. I think they all give different answers to be honest. I don't think many of them know a great deal in regards to time frames; I think it depends on who u talk to. Thanks again for the update.

Yes no problem on the update. I am sure we do get different information and partly it is probably due to this being a moving target for them and the person giving the information out is not the person working on the stuff so there are many levels of people in between where the details can go wrong also.

Would you please let us know what date they give you if/when you hear?

Also what I dont know is how they assign the date to your medicals. Is it based on the date they were originally done with the panel Dr or the date the CO got them or the date your application was registered at the embassy or the date the medicals arrived at the HMO in Australia as these can be wildly different...any idea?

You don't need to send them to Sydney. You send your medicals to your local or allocated embassy. What happens then is that embassy may decided to forward your medicals onto Sydney for further review. This is not your choice but the embassy's.

Update; Called Health Operations in Sydney today. Not helpful at all. Essentially all she told me is that they're still 'working' on medicals from the MIDDLE of August now. What happened to late August from a few weeks ago, as per previous posts?! So I tried to clarify with this woman, and she just tried to handball everything back to the CO (we haven't even got bloody assigned) in Pretoria! I mean, honestly?! So now, from the 2 month wait, it's expected to be closer to 3. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, guys but wanted to keep you updated...oh, and to remind you not to bother holding your breath for these people. I truly believe, even though they have a job to do, that they really couldn't care less about who they talk to; essentially we're just a number to these people. I believe in karma though, friends, and what goes around, comes around. I'm a health professional. Perhaps one day I'll be looking after the care of someone they love, eh. The universe has a funny way of doing things. Sorry! Off track. Try and keep positive, especially to you all who have been waiting much later than us. I can unequivocally say now that I am finished with correspondence with these people. They give you nothing; they give us all conflicting timeframes and answers. I give up; I'm just going to sit and wait!
