We are a bit concerned, because there is not one listed for Oregon.
Hi, welcome - looks like Seattle might be the place depending on where you are in Oregon, or else one of the Californian sites. You'll get some good feedback on this forum. All the best!

Canegirl might have some advice on when to apply for the medical and police checks, as I believe hers was a PMV also.
By the way, I've been to Oregon once - lovely place, so green and fresh. And crater lake - wow!

My fiancÚ state check took about a week and a half and his FBI check took about a week through a FBI channeler. We waited until they requested the police checks and medicals. When they request the police checks they will give you the channeler that have been approved by immi. If you choose to get the checks through the FBI themselves there is a long wait time.

With the medicals you can generate a HAP ID on your application. I can't actually remember where we found the information on the approved immi doctors ... I think it was by doing a search on the immi site you will be able to find the list in the various U.S. states.

Yes it will be processed through the Washington DC embassy.
Hi delmund

As CaneGirl says you need to do State and FBI checks for Police clearance. My Fianceee is from Wisconsin and it took about 10 days to get the back both the State Check and the FBI Check. She had to get a fingerprint card done for each check (which was done at the local police department) and she used a Channeler for the FBI check. If you can use a Channeler it is much quicker as I understand the wait time is something like12-14 weeks if you go directly to the FBI! However I think you can only use a Channeler if you are a US Citizen or PR - so you should check this. I think the info is on the Australian Mission, Washington DC website.

I see from other posts you have found the Panel Physicians. Like Oregon there are non on the list in Wisconsin so my Fiancee needs to travel to Chicago to get hers done and needed to book the appointment a couple of weeks prior. You need your HAP ID to make the appointment which you generate through the "Get Heath Details" button in your Immi account.

Regarding the timing of Medical and PC my Fiancee contacted DC before applying and was advised to wait approx 3-4 months after applying before arranging these. However I note from on this forum that many people for PMV are front loading and taking risk that visa will be granted before they expire. In the end we submitted PCs 2 months after applying and have arranged medical for beginning Oct (which will be about 3 1/2 months in).

Hope this all helps and good luck with your application.

Would you be able to give us a head's up on how much the medical costs? I know each doctor would probably charge different amounts, but we would like to have a ball-park figure so we can plan

I think from memory we paid just over 400 US for my fiancÚs medical. I think the prices vary too because I've seen people pay a little less. I should be able to contact which ever doctor you're looking at and ask them how much they charge. I guess you have to factor in the travel too.

I just had my medicals done a couple of weeks ago. I'm from Michigan but Windsor, ON is right across the Detroit River so not far to go.

Sounds like I got a veritable bargain. It was $200 Cdn for the exam and $100 Cdn for the chest X-ray. Working in the exchange rate, it really only amounted to about $225 U.S.

Funny thing was, the X-ray was at another facility. When I walked up to the registration window to register and pay, the gal said "$55, please". And then one of her cohorts corrected her and I paid the $100 when they found out it was for an Australian visa. They must think that people moving to Oz must have money. Guess they didn't know what the visa application cost.

HI everyone

I just checked my online application for sponsorship of my husband's visa, and noticed it says "approved" next to my name under the Supporting documents section. (I'm an AU citizen, he's US, been married 5.5 years)

I never noticed this before, but I think it used to say "processing". Does this mean I've been approved as the sponsor? My husband hasn't had his medical yet (doing it in 2 weeks) so the visa certainly isn't approved yet.

Has anyone seen this too? What does it mean?

I had that too being the sponsor. I think that just means that you have filled in your part of the application and that all the documents you uploaded are sufficient.
