Originally we were going to get them straight away but were then told to wait until requested because it would take so long. Now this person has theirs checked straight away?! This makes me angry.

Or just ring the embassy for further questions

Earlier this week on Tuesday (25 November), our CO "JK" asked my fiancÚ to get his medical and police checks done within 70 days (So that's another €460 just to get a medical done in Milan at one of the approved places. This whole thing is slowly getting too expensive.)

Not too sure if immigration will be doing much over Christmas or New Year.

Are you able to get to Kiev? Its the cheapest place in the world for a medical at only 50 Euro!

My gf called up a heap of immigration panel doctors in europe to compare prices. A friendly one in Krakow actually told her the cheapest locations to get it done.

Sadly my fiancÚ is in Venice. It's a simple day trip to Milan and back by train which he got cheap and the medical + xray + blood test works out to be about €400. I just did a quick search for the flights between Venice and Kiev and it costs the same (or little saving) but would be more since he would need to spend one night. He's already booked the earliest date he could get a reservation in Milan.

Thanks for the advice though!

For what it's worth, my experience is we tend to see a lot of grants in December on the forum from various embassies - both because they want to reunite applicants with their loved ones in time for Christmas, and because COs are trying to get as much as they can off their desks before they take their holidays. Let's hope that trend continues this year.

Akya, blah that is expensive (about $150 USD more than what I'd pay at my nearest panel doctor in the US). But the good thing is your application is moving forward, right?
