Hi Melb,
I hope you hear good news really soon.
CO rang my husband to tell that she has been trying to contact me to confirm some details regarding my schooling in India and Australia and my current employment.
I was at work so I couldn't pick my phone but my husband suggested her to call my work.

Email subject was "Immi Grant Notice".
VEVO is showing Resident with current visa details.
Immi account status is finalised with todays date.
Party is in Melbourne with one very happy husband.

Hi all,
Just received an email on Tuesday from the 'Filter Team Leader" (I guess the person that checks all your documents before you are assigned a case officer? I'm guessing...) asking for my AFP clearance. The email had a letter attached asking me to provide the document and that I have 28 days to do so.
I applied for the 2nd stage: 16 Aug 2015
They made contact: 26 April 2016 (8 months and a half)
Just writing for those who might wonder how they make contact. The email also went to my junk mail so keep checking that!
Hopefully after my police clearance is supplied the visa will be granted shortly.
Fingers crossed to all of us!!

Hi All,

Greetings !!

Is it necessary to inform Medicare and get a new medicare card once PR is granted or does Immigration inform Medicare and then they send us a new card ?

I pray that all of you get your grants soon.

Hey Bamborabi,

Many Congratulations on the visa grant!!!

In some cases they do, but I wasn't sent a permanent card automatically after my grant. I waited for 4 months after the grant hoping it would arrive without me having to go, called Medicare so find out what was happening then was told that I would have to go to the Medicare office. Went in with my documents and the visa grant letter for the SC100, only then they registered me for the new permanent card.

The lady at the medicare office was also confused cause it is meant to happen automatically because both department of human resources/medicare and DIBP are linked so any update can be sent through but that didn't happen in my case.

If you do have to go in, it'll be a quick trip (it was for me). Make sure to take 100 points of ID, including your current valid passport, copy of visa grant letter, your temporary 'blue' medicare card, other forms of ID. The officer will cancel the blue card and keep it with them.
They asked me for the new visa letter and handed me a paper copy of the green medicare card no in case I needed it before the actual card arrived in the mail later on.
I received the plastic card in the mail 5 business days later.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
Becky

They send a new one out automatically, pretty fast too. First you'll get a letter telling you that medicare have been informed of your PR status by immi (amusingly, they still refer to them as DIAC) and that a card is on its way. So I'd wait a couple of weeks for that letter and save yourself the bother. If you don't get it, do as Becky said and go in to an office.

The first letter was dated 1 working day after my PR was granted. Between them sending it and me receiving it, I went into a medicare office, not realising it was automatically sent out. They were happy for me to keep my interim card while the full card was processed.

I got my new card less than 2 weeks after grant. Whether it was the automatically issued one or the one the system generated after I applied in person at the office, I don't know. I kind of expect another one to arrive next week and supercede my current one, haha.

We applied for my Mrs' 801 visa on the 9th of December, sort of half done, rushed. Then basically forgot about it, had a new baby, got my mother in law a visa, holidays, and intended to 'fix' the application up a little bit. However, not necessary. Visa granted on the 12th of April. All good!
