I found what Mark wrote that explained why things are sent to Oz. Gee he's a man of great knowledge and worth 8-)

"The quick version of all of this is that medical results must be assessed by a Medical Officer of the Commonwealth (MOC) once the exam and tests are completed by the Dr or approved facility. Some facilities are appointed as a MOC for purposes of assessing results - things move more quickly when this type of facility is used, as the facility can do the MOC approval and forward that along with the results back to the case officer at the processing embassy, etc.

If the facility is not a MOC, then the test results are sent to a MOC, usually in Australia, for assessment and determination of whether the applicant passes the health criteria. The MOC then forwards that determination to the case officer and processing continues."

So that my lovelies is why they are not assessed in Greece or Malta or Sweden if the facility is not set up with A MOC they go to Sydney for assessment.

All this information is very Interesting....... however for the people who are just about to apply for a Visa....what they need to do is contact a panel doctor ...http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/pane.........Medicals and X-rays taken at any of these doctors go straight to the Berlin Embassy. Quite simple.

Welcome to our thread mirimiri. So glad you have posted and let us know your details. Sounds to me like you will soon be enjoying a celebration of which I'm very pleased and excited for you.

Would you mind sharing with us who you CO is. The initials of their name is good. That way we are not using names.

Well they have two choices. Wait for the CO to request medicals to be done. This is the official way. Or go ahead and do them ahead of being requested and submit with the visa. This is not something we can or should direct people to do as there are risks involved in doing it this way that each applicant should decide on for themself.

Anyway back on topic. This is a short month with just over 2 weeks to go. Not too many people seem to be August applicants that are listed here so I wonder if we might see some Sept applicants getting visa's.

Are there any Sept applicants out there from Berlin?

Yes exactly...if you follow the link Contact Us

There is all the information anyone applying at Berlin will need. It also states "You should not have your visa medical examination until you have been formally requested to do so by the office processing your visa application."

It is best to follow the instructions of the CO.

this advice is so tru kaplunk, some people believe that sending in the medicals before there asked for will save time, unfortunatly it doesnt.
Its a must that people wait for the CO to request them.
