A mutual acquaintance was asked to leave in November and not given a deadline. Expiry of check/medical (not sure which) wasn't until end of Feb. They made plans to leave in February and when they notified the CO of that, then they were given the deadline of a specific date in February as that was the must make first entry by date.

But initial communication in November had no deadline. They could have left then but chose to wait several more months for whatever reason (even though the previous 9 months were full of complaining about why immigration was taking so long and forcing them to put their lives on hold and blah blah blah).

So I'm fairly certain those validity dates have a lot to do with how much time you're given. Not sure what will happen with your medical as it looks like it's over the 12 month period. If they don't require you to do another one, then maybe it'll be based on the police checks you submitted in Oct. I would like to hear back from you when you do find out just for curiosity's sake.

Thanks again for your reply Skybluebrewer, that's helpful to know. I haven't received any further communication or anything, but it was just something I was curious about. I'm currently still outside Australia but since it's all taking so much time I'm currently considering to maybe go back to Australia on a tourist visa next week to wait it out from there.

The CO told me back in December that she'd extend the validity of my medical to June 2018, so that one I will hopefully not have to do that one again.

I received my first contact from the department today after 11.5 months. It was a request for additional information and the only item needed is my health exam, however I already completed this and the results were submitted by the panel doctor in May 2017. When I log into eMedical it says my exam has been completed and all results submitted. Has this happened to anyone else before? Are they asking me to retake the exam for some reason? I have 28 days to provide the requested information. I really don't want to pay $500 for another exam, especially since it wouldn't have expired by now!

@Ella - Great to see movement on your application! I can’t provide an answer to your question, but ours says the medical has been processed and no further info needed as well (can’t remember exact wording). We did upload the lab report etc that was emailed to us from the panel physician just as an ‘addition’.

About time! Congrats.

Mind filling us in? When would your police and medical hit 12 months and what's your entry by date?

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need to wait on the phone for quite awhile to ask the question! At the very least, if they say you need to do it again, you'll need to find out how to get another form if you can't do it through immi.
