Every time I log into his Immi account on the iPad he gets an email notification about that. I just tried "updating email address" to see if, within the application itself there may have been a issue.
From what I saw the correspondence are of the immi account is for anything to do with the account not the specific application info, it will show the confirmation that the application was submitted through the account, not when it's being reviewed or approved. I'm not expecting any updates for my application to come through there. It's a bit more involved to add/change the email accounts you want to receive application updates.

I'm only 1 month + 2 days into my wait, I could be wrong, but that's why we have the past applicants on here to help,

HI all

I have a quick question about the medical. How do you do it before you are allocated a case officer or a HAP ID?
We applied on April 31st, and have been waiting, but we'd really like to get this step out of the way.

Thanks for your advice!

Can you complete the medical questionnaire on your application, that should help.

Are you sure you want to do the medical now even though you only applied a month ago?

Thanks Canegirl

Is it best to wait for a Case Officer to be allocated before doing the medical? What are the advantages of waiting?
My husband will need to travel for the medical, so we will need to organise time from work, flights etc. and wanted to get onto it. We applied 3 months ago, so we are hoping to hear from someone soon!

If he fills out the questionnaire and gets a HAP ID, does it expire or can we complete the questionnaire and then wait for the CO to just us the green light?

I appreciate your help!

Hi Midcitybaby,
My Fiancee applied PMV mid June and recently did the online questionnaire and got the HAP ID and has booked the medical for end of August. I am not aware of anything that suggests that the HAP ID can expire.

When we contacted Washington a few months ago they advised us to wait a 3-4 months after applying for PMV before doing the Medical and Police Checks (as they are only valid for 12 months). However like your Husband my fiancee has to travel and we just wanted to get everything organised and planned rather than wait for a CO.

We made the desicion to go ahead based on what we have read on this forum. Wait time currently seem to be 6-7 months if no complications, and if all documents have been submitted many visas appear to have been issued very quickly after CO .

I also note that many people seem to have got all the Medicals and PC done before applying.

So do you get done now or wait for CO? I think that you just have to make the call based on how confident you are that you have a straightforward case and that DC will maintain current processing times. I think the only benefit in waiting for CO is that you eliminate any risk of them expiring.

Good luck!
