MRT case won, what next?

Hi I just got the MRT case for 485 settled down recently and just wondering what to do next. apparently both my medical check booking and police check have expired, should i redo them beforehand or i can just wait for them to contact me?

what happened to me was, i couldn't get the skill assessment, re-applied for it when my case officer asked for it, and then got refused for the visa, so i went through MRT to buy me times for skill assessment, then i got both skill and MRT with no problem now.

I just called medicare health solution and they gave me a new case number, can i just go straight to get the body check done with the new case number? i was just worried about that i still haven't heard a thing from DIAC and should i provide them my new case number or i should just be more patient?I would like to get the body check done this week because i will be very busy starting next week......

need some advise, thank you.


and i just gave the DIAC a call about my situation, they told me that they will re-do my case from the very beginning so i should just wait a bit longer before doing the new medical/police check as it might take up to 12 month to process...
I am really confused now , if they are really going to process my case from the beginning and there will be a chance my IELTS will expire too, it is just very annoying to do it again.....isn't it true that they will give you a priority for the processing when you won the MRT? i mean having more time here is good, but i still want to make sure i won't get anything wrong this time as i really can't afford the cost, and i heard that some people failed just because they couldn't get the police check or medical check in time...

I won my case after doing an appeal for my 485 visa and waited for about 2-3months to get a new case officer. She requested police check and that's it. I submitted the required doc and very soon I got my visa granted. However my medical report is still up to date when she looked into my case. No request for IELTS though I submitted the result about 1.5years ago.

To Approach MRT - PR visa refused for skills assessment missing during lodgement

hi everyone and poiuyt0987,
please help.
my 186 visa(employer sponsored) refused in April 2013 for missing skills assessment during lodgement. it is now with the MRT. I have my employer nomination approval and positive skills assessment now.
Can i win the MRT case if i submit these 2 now?
If yes, what approach i must take to win and request to reconsider continue the case at immigration again?

Hi poiuyt0987, could you share the approach you have taken to win yours.

Others, please share you thoughts. thanks for the help (i am afraid otherwise i have to leave australia).
Please respond.

Hi All -

IELTS for 485 application is a time-of-application requirement, so as long as you met that at the time of application, it will not be needed again later on if DIBP reviews the case after being remitted back to them by the MRT.

Selva - For the 186 ENS - Direct Entry option, a positive skills assessment is a time of application requirement. If the date of the skills assessment is after the date of your visa application, you may have a problem. If it's before that, then you're likely in good shape in regards to this issue. You need professional advice as the law in this area is very complex. MRT is generally good for dealing with time-of-decision problems, but time-of-application problems can be difficult or impossible to overturn by the MRT since they have to use the same laws that DIBP used to refuse your visa in the first place.

Hope this helps -
