Yes. We all passed our medical checks.

I was wondering the same question, a search of the Australian Embassy in DC website confirms that US residents Australian family visas are indeed processed there. Not sure whether our govn shutdown affects them, I sure hope not. But at least it explains for me why applications from some countries seem to get faster processing that others...

I don't mean to sound condescending to anyone, but Australian visas are processed through the Australian Embassy in Washington, which in no way, shape or form has any connection to the U.S. Federal Government. Visas are not processed by "U.S. government workers", they are processed by Australian government workers. the only affect i could see the U.S. government shutdown having on Australian visa approvals is maybe FBI security checks taking longer (or maybe grinding to a halt if the people processing those get furloughed).

Mine is Nov. 6, 2017. I did my medical checks in October, so I would have everything ready when I lodged my application. At this rate I'm going to have to pay another $1,000 for health checks again (2 children and me). They're only good for a year, right?
