How long before request for medical?

Hey guys

On an offshore 309 partner visa application how long does it take after sending off application before a medical request comes through? Is it pretty quick? (I'm in UK.)

We applied for the 309 visa in the USA. We didn't wait to be asked, the medical is good for a year. I don't know if you can in the UK, but immigration here in Washington said it was ok to do the medical before being asked, or even applying. You must use an approved panel doctor for the medical and use the two forms, one for xray form 160 and one for examination, form 26. The doctors get the results and mail them directly to the embassy, well that is what they did for us. I understand in some countries they only accept electronic lodgement and then you have to wait to be asked.

Hi,
I applied in Berlin office, the application was received on 26th September and on the 2nd October I was asked to get the medicals done. So it was quite quick.

That's good to know. By sounds of it it's once they receive the application and check its all there.

I also waited to be asked. We are in Puerto Rico, going through Washington Embassy. They received the application on July 3 and they didn’t request medical until 4 months later!! I regret not getting it done sooner but as there are no panel dr.s in Puerto Rico, my hubby had to fly to the mainland (US) to get the medicals done. It would have been a lot of expense if we messed it up by getting it done before being asked.

I just did my medicals in Thailand before visa lodgement. I was nominated for 190 SS.
At first the panel doctor refused to do it. Apparently they are not allowed to do it anymore. Only using the eHealth system now.
I insisted and he showed me the legislation. However it stated that they are permitted to do the medicals for 457 visas beforehand.

I claimed on the forms it would be for a 457 and requested a full medical which cost me only $120 compared to $500 plus it would have been in Oz.

Hmm I'm applying for 309 visa though. Doubt I'd get away with persuading them to do one before request in UK. X

Good idea getting it done in Asia though! Reckon it would be super cheap in India where I go regularly. X

I don't know that the UK mission would like you getting one from India IMHO.

If you did it in Oz it would be ok but going to India might seem a little odd when you are based in the UK.
