And i canít speak for every clinic that does health checks, but the Seattle clinic currently has a month long waitlist. So maybe just get on the waitlist and decide later if you want to actually schedule an appointment. It would be a real downer to get the request for another health check and you have to wait in line for a month before seeing a doc. Waiting to hear back from them after a request for info is hellish, so I would do everything you can to ensure you have a full application
I'm interested to see if they request them later on. Keep us posted.

Hello All,
It’s been awhile since I have been on the forum. I thought I’d let you all know that I am currently in Australia living with my husband (FINALLY!!!). I arrived on October 3rd. My family situation is complicated…more complicated than I had originally thought. That is why we will be canceling our 309 application (originally lodged on November 6th, 2017) and lodging again onshore with an 820. This time we will be using a migration agent. We still have a battle ahead, but at least this time I can do it while living with my husband. In the end, if Australia won’t take me and my family, I’m sure the US will.

We haven’t lodged our 820 yet (we will be today or tomorrow), but our soon-to-be canceled 309 is still in the queue. I just thought you all might like to know that I finally got some correspondence from the department saying my application was now in process after one year of waiting on our 309. In fact, it was on the one year mark exactly. This makes me suspect that on the one year anniversary an email is automatically generated. Either that or someone in the department is made aware on the one year anniversary. Anyway, it has been good having you all to go through this process with. I wish you all well. I think I was the one that originally put the 309 list together. Feel free to take me off now. Thank you all!

I think it's just coincidence as I received that email just before grant and I was only 3 months in to waiting.

If you're already going to pay the fee again, why are you withdrawing the 309/100? Nothing stopping you from having two in queue. Just a bonus if one is granted before the other and you just withdraw the one that wasn't granted then. Seems ridiculous to withdraw one to apply again and start the waiting all over again.

Hi there,
Curious why you are cancelling your 309 (assuming it is not private). I did receive the auto generated correspondence at exactly the 1 year date, as did a few others on this thread. I am now at 16+ months waiting and am getting nervous as my medical and police reports expire this month. I will be ready to head to Oz in the new year and would hope I know where I stand visa wise very soon.

We received a request for further information today, asking for FBI/state police checks and health exam for my partner. Our application has also been updated to "Initial Assessment".

Super surprised to receive this. We applied for a 462 on the 11/11.

Does anyone know if the request means they will approve the 300 soon after they receive everything they requested?

I lodged from the Philippines last October 2018, then immediately after I submitted the application, same time, there was a red action flag- Medical Request was being asked. Untill now, status is received.

Hi Pyrite, That's great you got contacted so quickly. I wonder if it had anything to do with submitting your other visa application because they contacted you much more promptly than I've seen of late. Unfortunately the time until grant after giving them the info they requested is anybody's guess. Recently I've seen as soon as 1 day later through to 3 months later. Right now there are posters on this forum who have been waiting for 2.5 months (and counting) after supplying additional information. I think the last grant on this site was October 18th. Hopefully a few will start coming through towards the end of the month. Separately, Dannygolucky, I wondered if you had submitted your follow info / heard anything?

We thought that it might have something to do with the 462 application but since others have applied, approved and arrived on 462 without any contact I really have no idea. I did see that some had waited a day and others 3 months, but even 3 months is faster than we were expecting. We had no plans on lodging our health checks/police checks for another month or two.

Hopefully others begin hearing stuff soon! I know there is a bunch of 300 & 309s lodged in April.

Oh, wow! We applied for the same visa (300) weeks apart and you've already heard back? I have received nothing so far. I planned on doing my background/medical checks in early December anyways.
