Well maybe i will call back in the morning and see if someone else tells me differently. But she said to only get it when the CO tells you because it could cause trouble when they actually enter Australia because the medical and police checks are only valid for 1 year and could have expired by the time we enter which could affect getting through immigration.

If you're applying through the London office, it's my understanding that you have to wait for your CO to give you a HAP ID number and then you can book it, as it needs to be completed electronically.

"Clients applying at the London office will be advised of the health requirement once they have lodged an application. It is no longer possible for clients to undertake medicals or radiological examinations before lodging an application."

I wasn't disagreeing with that part - for some countries, including the UK, you do have to wait until you are given a HAP ID to do your medicals. What I was disagreeing with was the part where she told you you might not have to do them - that is completely incorrect.

I know you weren't collegegirl - I should have quoted this post in my previous reply - _misshall was asking about including it in her application, which I'm not sure you can do over here.

You're welcome

Your list looks pretty good to me - I would just point out that you need to have you own statutory declarations notarised, this can be done at the embassy or by a solicitor etc more info here: (Notarial Services - Australian High Commission)

We've been together for over 4 years but only lived together consecutively for just over 1 year.. All in all we've really lived togeher about 2 and a half years but not all at once

I would include that in your statements (i.e. total amount of time you have lived together and detailing how you stayed in contact when you were seperated and why etc.) and provide evidence (which I think you've listed below).

From what I have read in this forum, others would say that you should include that you would like to be considered for 100 due to the time you have lived together.
