189 Visa - Some Questions

Hi,
I am going to lodge application for 189 Visa. I have some questions. I would appreciate members help in this regard.
- I am not claiming my wife's skills points, should I mention my wife's experience and upload documents thereof?
- I have just gone through the medical through emedical clinic, they told me that they will upload the result directly. I just logged in ehealth and can not see any change therein. Unfortunately, I did not keep any extra copy of referral letter which had HAP ID and other details. As I need to mention HAP ID, should I generate it again from that ehealth portal? Will it be the same HAP ID or it may change whilst generating the referral letter again?
- I have 10 years of experience, however, the accessing body just recognized 5 years post qualification experience. Should I upload the pre qualification experience documents as well which was not recognized or just mention them only?
- Any original document also need to be uploaded or all should be certified copies?
- Once I pay visa fee and given the option of uploading documents, how long will this be available? The 60 days limit will be over once I pay or I would need to upload the documents within the same time frame?

Regards,
Zia

Hi Zia -

Great questions - my responses:

Re: wife experience docs, generally not necessary if you are not claiming partner points, unless requested.

Re: health, can you get the HAP ID from the clinic?

Re: experience, you only need to upload docs for experience you are claiming points for, or experience that the skills assessor requires in order to deem you as skilled.

Re: docs, colour scans or certified black & white copies are generally acceptable to DIBP for online applications

Re: time to upload docs, this is generally available even after a case officer has been assigned - can vary depending on how your application is processed.

Hope this helps - best of luck with your application!

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,
Thanks for your prompt and useful response!
I also have arranged PCC from my country of citizenship but need letter from CO for getting PCC from the country of residence. Should I upload the one I have or wait to be asked for both PCCs?

Regards,
Zia

Hi Zia -

I would upload whatever you have ready and request the letter from the CO. Sometimes there is a delay in getting this letter as PCC's expire in 1 year, and if a long processing time is anticipated (ie, for onshore partner visas), they may hold off a while on giving you the letter, but you'll need to see from your CO how they want to handle it.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

Some quick questions - need your help:
- There are two fields in heath examination section. One is text box for details and other for HAP ID. I put the HAP ID in the relevant field, however, I do not have idea what to write in details field.
- Question regarding previous countries of residence - Have any of the applicants lived in a country other than the primary applicant's usual country of residence? - Is it about any country in which applicant lives/works and not a citizen? I am living in a country where I am not a citizen and have only work permit. should I mention this residence here from the date I came here till today?

Regards,
Zia

Hi Zia -

Re: details on health question, I believe that asks if you have had a health exam - if so, you can put the date/location, etc in the details box.

Re: countries you've lived in with only a work permit, yes, those should be listed if you consider yourself living there for any period of time. If you were just visiting for a short period that might be different.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

[QUOTE=MarkNortham;223161]Hi Zia -

Re: details on health question, I believe that asks if you have had a health exam - if so, you can put the date/location

Hi Mark,
I accessed the organize my health portion in my evisa application account.
I also ticked yes under some medical questions for declarations. Unlike, what you have advised Zia, I only briefly answered in details i.e as curt as ' erratic ' for question under problem with blood pressure. Thinking about that, I am worried it was a wrong detail I have provided. It should have included details you mentioned? is there a minimum number of words to be used for describing details, and is that taken against me if there is only a brief answer as one word the way I did? I am just worried of the implication if I proceed with medical this week and findings ( such as elevated blood pressure) would be worse than I had expected and described and may come across as lying.

Thanks mark as always!

Hi -

I think we may be speaking of 2 different questions. If the questions asks about a HAP ID and any details about the medical exam itself (ie, location, date, time, etc) that's one thing. If the question is asking you to explain any "Yes" answers on the actual health questions on the application (ie, "Have you had any ..."), then that's a different question and should be answered accurately. That being said, you're not a Doctor and are not expected to give a detailed diagnosis - a layman's description of whatever the condition is should be sufficient, and DIBP can follow up with the panel doctor or request additional information from you, the panel doctor, or a specialist as necessary.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

Thanks again!

Certainly, when I ticked on yes for every item that applies I was declaring it. My assumption as well was that specific medical conditions will be examined by the panel physician during the actual check-up.

You're always promptly reassuring mark!

Thanks

Hi again Mark,

I saw your advise in another thread re: medical examination that 189 includes FULL Medical check up, including chest xray, and HIV test. Would full cover blood chemistry as to cholesterol level?

Sorry to bother again Mark
