Question Health Checks required? Partner Visa

Hi everyone

I am wondering if you know whether I have to do health checks straight away for my Partner Visa 820? It says when I open my application "health checks required" and that visa could be refused if I don't do them

I was told to do it 6 months or 12 months after lodging the visa, because the waiting times are so long now so if I do it now I will have to renew it later on (only lodged in April).

Many thanks

Daisy 144

The average time for the last six 820 grants, that I have seen, was 16 months.
If you submit medicals with the application, there is a chance that you might have to redo them, although not everyone is asked to do that.

Many people wait, some just wait something like 6 months, others wait until asked.

We did ours after just a month, haven't gotten the visa yet (been 10 months) but was just asked for 2 police checks this month and they didn't ask us to redo the medical, so far so good.

Thank you so much JandE. That is what I thought but I want to double check everything with these things. 16 months, that would be so great.

Hi,
For the medical check, what do Immi look for approval or rejection? Contagious or infectious diseases? What in the X ray photos they are looking for to accept or reject application?
Thanks if reply

Blood tests for HIV and if I am not mistaken, which I could be, the X-Ray is for TB.

They are looking to see whether you have a condition that will create an undue cost burden on Australia and/or whether you are a risk to public health.

Yep the xray is for TB. They also look for blood in your urine because kidney disease.
