Medical Question

Hello, I'm new to this forum and applied for my husband's 309 in April 2018. First I want to say what an amazing place this is for people to come and share their experiences in this long, and sometimes difficult, journey. I have a quick question in regards to completing the medical after applying for the visa. Can he just click on "Organise Health Examinations" in his immi account then complete the eMedical "record medical history" online form to get his referral letter and HAP ID then go for his appointment? Or does he have to wait to be contact by a CO?

I just get a little confused reading the instructions on the Government website where it says "We provide you a HAP ID and ask that you undergo health examinations" does "we" mean a CO? or does "we" mean the automatic button in the immi account that says this person requires a health examination?

Also, "My Health Declarations" is different to eMedical, yes? because it says "Please do not use My Health Declarations if you have already lodged a visa application" and I would hate for this to delay the application.

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share the good news that I got my 309 visa yesterday! There was a bit more drama to get there - after getting an email last week that my evidence had been received, I got a second email on Tuesday from my case officer saying she hadn't received anything. But I sent everything again yesterday and heard back that I got the visa in less than four hours. I'm still in a bit of shock that I actually have a visa. I've looked at the email about twenty times just to make sure it's real.

Things that may be of interest to some of you who are still waiting (although who knows if what applies to one will apply to all):
1. My visa was granted even though my medical and criminal background checks (FBI and New York State) were over a year old. They asked for an updated AFP check for my husband - his was also over a year old - but did not request updates for me.
2. They gave me 64 days to enter Australia - which was more time than I expected.

Good luck to everyone still waiting. I know how hard these past 15 months have been for us so I definitely empathize with everyone still waiting.

All the best,
Anna

Wow big congrats! That’s awesome!
Just two quick questions
1.What time did you get your 309 approved? Reason I ask is because I’m trying to determine if visas are being processed in Aus or the US? If odd timing -I’m assuming it’s in Aus
2. We received the in progress email but no case officer mentioned ? How do you know you’ve been assigned a case officer ?


Thanks in advance and congrats again !

Congratulations that’s amazing news!!

Our timeline is very similar. We applied June 30th 2017 for a PMV but were married April 7th 2018. A week ago we were asked for a state police check and are just waiting for it to come back. We supplied a lot of the same additional information you did and are hoping to have our Partner Visa approved very soon as well!!

1. I believe they are being processed in the US. The paperwork we have received so far has US Embassy Washington on the bottom and also judging by the time of day we received the emails (middle of the night in Australia).

2. We never even received the progress email. Our application changed from “received” to “further assessment”. We only knew we had been assigned a case officer by the first email asking for an additional police check. It had the CO’s name on the email and the attachment for the request.

Hello guys, just submitted my 309 on Sep 6th through the online portal, please add me to the wait list and hopefully the wait time continue to drop as I wait.

Front loaded with police certificates, but still compiling all the relationship documents (photos, chat records etc).

One question: what is the best way to submit our online chat records? We mainly communicate through WhatsApp (nobody makes phone call or email anymore) and we have years of chat history - they wouldn't expect me to screenshot every single one of them would they. How long should I go back for online chat?

We use kik and whatsapp, and I did screenshots of a weeks worth every month, to show consistency and frequency, then dragged them into a document 3 across. I then updated it every 4 months or so with a new upload.

Hello. My husband applied for his 309 through DC in April this year and I have a question regarding the medical.

Firstly, let me say this is a great forum for everyone going through the immigration process. It helps out with information but also lets us know we aren’t alone in this long, and sometimes difficult, process.

Regarding the medical, can my husband go for his medical before being asked by a CO? or does a CO have to give him a HAP ID?

The website says “We provide you a HAP ID” is “we” a CO or is it the Arrange Health Examination button on his immi account? If it is the latter then I’m guessing we can fill out the eMedical online form and get his medical when we are ready.

Also, are My Health Declarations and eMedical different? I just get a tad confused because the website says “Please do not use My Health Declarations if you have already lodged a visa application.”,and I want to make sure clicking the Arrange Health Examination button on his immi account and getting eMedical Referral letter won’t slow the visa process down.

Has anyone arranged their medical after submitting the visa application and before being contacted by a CO?

Thanks again, ��
