We finally planned to go somewhere that do not require visa. I have still a long wait to go:/ and this is why we intend to have a holiday tgt during the processing times as the wait is stressful. I just hope they contact me if they require further information, moreover my PCC will expire this sept.

I applied for 309/100 in December 2017 front loaded with medicals and PCC. Till date I have heard nothing from Immi except the auto generated emails and the 1 year application in progress email. I want to update the medicals and PCC as it is more than 1 year and supposedly expired, I know I can just apply for a new PCC but not sure how to go about the medicals. Should I use the same HAP ID or I need a new HAP ID from Immi. Or should I wait to be asked to do a new medical and PCC. My Immi acc says health clearance provided and finalised. Anyone that can help with info please. Thanks

@papag my guess would be you can use the same ID as last time to rebook your medical. I don’t think it would get lost?

Has anyone got any updates or good news from Pretoria lately? We are at 17.5 months and still waiting.

@waiting4eva/papag, dont think you can use same ID. My partner attempted to do an update sometime last. Rang and DHA advised to wait for contact if required a new HAP ID will be provided. From conversations I have had and heard from other folks experience if the sponsor has held private health insurance for a considerable time and includes his or her partner as part of the cover, the 'medical expiry and entry date' will not be tied as is mostly the case. I may be wrong just what I have gathered from other folks.

Thanks for your reply @waiting4eva/@Ruzy12

Including my wife in my private health insurance at this stage will be a waste of premium as she lives overseas and cannot use it, though I will not mind including her if it makes the medicals valid.

@wating4ever no news from Pretoria, very frustrating.

Does Pretoria take a long time to process Partner Visa's?

Thanks for the guidance
Hi, when you have applied, there were several questions that needed to be filled and one of them (so long as I remember) ask about the nearest Australian High Commission if they need to contact you for an interview, what did you write?

@Hope28 We have also applied from Mauritius and last week we peaked the first year wait. My opinion for our wait, in this case me being the australian citizen and my husband being the applicant, is that because we are together in Mauritius, they are not processing it with priority. Let's see and good luck with your wait.

Thank you! I still have a long wait as I have applied end of December. One year is terrible, my fiancé is in Australia so long distance relationship 😞. I hope you get yours soon too, have you already submitted your medicals and PCC?

Application is for my husband. I'm the Sponsor. And yes we front loaded the police clearance and the medicals a few days after we applied.We are not in a hurry to move this year, so it's ok for now.
