I would recommend you just get them redone to avoid a wait later. They are good for a year and unless you think it is going to take more than another year from now it should be all OK.

I think they call it medibank or medicare. Do a search online, I would do it for you but I am tired lol.

Police check and medicals are only good for 12 months.

In Europe you need to see a panel doctor, check with the embassy as to who they think is qualified. In Australia I think it is medibank.

Hi -

Here's a link for panel doctors by country - you must have your medical done at one of these:

Contact Us

I suggest you contact your CO (not complain!) and point out that your medical has expired, and ask what he/she would like you to do, and if you can provide any further information or documents to assist with the processing. It's a great opportunity to make contact and see what's happening, and you might just bump yourself up on the priority list by doing so. But do so before you take the additional tests, as they may have specific instructions for you, etc.

That's a good suggestion and that's what I did as well. My medical expired before I heard from the co. I used that opportunity to email the co to see if I needed to redo it. To my surprise the co replied my email saying I didn't have to redo it and asked for my police check. After i submitted n waited for another month, I got the visa. Good luck to u!
