Hi MaryMar

My wife originally came in on a student visa, so she is currently on a student visa until March 2016, although as you know, once you apply for the 820/801 you got a bridging visa (A) so I assume her visa will revert to a BVA when her student visa expires.

Also we applied for my husband's 820/801 at the start of June. How long did you wait to do your medical test?

Waiting as patiently as we can...
I applied in May and decided to do medical late July as we are trying to have a baby and wanted the medical out of the way.

Medicals last 1 yr, but with the longer wait times of 12-15 months, it is advised to wait a few months before getting it done so as not to risk having to do medicals again.

How strict are they with the 1 year validity period? I think we did ours before our application to have everything ready

Halogen correct our PMV had not expired before we were granted the Bridging Visa A, and still not expired when 820 approved. Yes the existing Visa will remain inplace until it expires so you have peace of mind.

Syd, I would not do a medical unless they request, from reading many 820 applicants have been processed without doing the medical ( keep the cash in the back pocket )

Your situation is different because coming from PMV you did medical already. All partner visa applicants are required to do medical.

It depends on your CO. I've seen some COs extending medicals and police checks while others don't. It's up to the discretion of CO.
