Does someone know how to contact Pretoria? my husband has been requested for additional info and of them being Medical Examinations. He had done them upon applying almost 19 months ago and it was received by Home Affairs. We thought they are requesting new ones as they must be expired. So he has called the Medical Centre to book an appointment but they sayHome Affairs haven't given my husband a new HAP ID. Can anyone here please advise?

You should be able to generate a letter from your immi account with your Hap ID and that letter should say when your last medical was done and that you require new medicals. I did that when a new medical was requested.

@NadsB - Thank you for your response. But my question remains - Where do we email them? Do you have an email address that you have used? Thanks for your assistance.

Been watching for over a year and thankyou, our time to give back.

309/100 Approved with full Permanant 100 Approved as well.

Husband Rob Australian
Wife Tiana South African and her son South African (nb: he is my son as much as my/our daughter is in real life)
2yr old daughter born South Africa but Australian Citizen by decent applied/approved May 2018.

Met in Aug 2014, Married Jan 16 (and again Jan 17) as Home Affairs lost docs etc...long story Daughter born September 2016, Tiana has a 8yr old son from prior.

Applied 15 June 2018 via agent (visa times at that point was 7m/11m)
Optimistically started preparing for Oz as estimated around Christmas to March 2019 family should be in Oz. Rob left Sept 2018 to Oz to find work/setup.

Rob SA police clearance Aug 2018 unrequested
Tiana Medicals and Police Clearance June 18 unrequested
Nothing heard back from Pretoria at this point bar auto email at 1yr saying is in system etc. General generic one we all get.

July 30th request for more information
Wanted bank statements and how we share day to day expenses (simply supplied last 5 months of each our personal bank statements and simple 3 paragraph basically saying as a married couple we share responsibility for all day to day and fleshed it out a little with some specifics re how I transfer funds from Oz to family and outline Tiana's part time work etc.

Also they requested updated SA Police Certificates (but agent queried as were in 12m and embassy responded that they now are not required, but did need Australian Fed Police clearance as Rob been in Oz 12months). They also wanted a statement from Rob on his ex wife divorced 2008. Simple 1 paragraph response outlining dates married/divorced and that relationship of 10yrs simply broke down after a business failure.

Submitted most on the 31st July and Oz Police Clearance 27th August 2019.

Another request for Bank Statements and day to day sharing arrangements was sent again 15th Aug 2018. We were like ????? So was putting together further back statements, screen shots of whatsapp call logs for last 6months (we video call at least 1 or twice a day, when kids get up/after school etc), whatsapp messages where we were discussing money, more detailed description of day to day sharing of 1 page now...

We were going to submit after we got all Aug 2019 bank statements earmarked to complete and upload about 5th Sept 2019 as the statement should all be in by 4th Sept as 4th each month get them.

Got email from Embassy on 5th September Visa Granted with 4 attachments. Opened one and was 309 Temp approval so rang wife in SA and shared the news (she was cc'd but was out and didn't notice the email) and said her temp res visa approved, she cried etc.. Later opened sons and was same for 309 Then opened the 3rd and was the 100 Perm approved so recalled the wife to share even the better news...over the moon.

They simply must have missed our 1st submission for bank statements and day to day sharing details...so never sent/deleted our 2nd preparations for this

This is one of the hardest ordeals you are going to go through in life but keep the faith and communicate with your family as often as you can if you are apart. The phone calls you make are often bitter/sweet as though you love chatting/seeing your family, after the calls you often very sad too as you miss them. Keep strong. If it is genuine then you will make a plan and work through it. Todays technology allows this so no excuses and is also good as is tracked in your logs/messages etc. While apart simply try get on with day to day life working towards your family. You can't fall into depression etc, keep strong as the visa will come eventually if you are genuine.

As much as I hated the process, I also understand the reasons on why Australia is such a lucky country as it is rigid process driven, systematic and tries to be fair and un-corruptible. Its systems are designed to keep the bogus relationships, the boat people and unwanted elements out of the country. When your Visa does finally come through, you can feel safe and enjoy living in a country where your dreams are your only limits.

We wish you all the best in your efforts and to keep strong, the rewards are worth it.

Short Story
Applied 15th June 2018 via agent
All medicals and police clearances completed unrequested by June 2019
Request more information 31 July 2019, submitted 27th Aug 2019
