With the average length of time the processing is taking at present (12-15 months from the immigration site with it being closer to the 15 month mark based on posts in this forum), you are probably best waiting to get the medicals done closer to the time of visa grant, so you don't need to do them again.

The company responsible for medicals in Australia is Bupa Welcome to Bupa Medical Services - they seem to have 2 partners in Tasmania, (rather than their own offices) - 1 in Hobart and 1 in Launceston.

I don't believe it matters where you get the medicals done - provided they are done by an approved doctor (so through Bupa in Australia).

Congratulations juneinaus

We applied for my husbands visa a few weeks before you but were asked for more documents last month - which is probably why we've not got a decision yet (they are still awaiting 1 final document which we hope to upload by the end of the week - just waiting on the official translation)....so we're hoping to have good news in the next few weeks too....

Congrats guys.

Kally did you apply February 2014 or 2015? If 2014 you should have been granted PR straight away as it has been more than 2 years since you lodged.

Congrats!!! You must be so happy I applied a day after you and I am so tensed now lol. Was planning to call immi this week but maybe I should give it a couple more daysbthen. Did they ask you for any updated documents before though? Haven't heard from them at all and I start to be worried about the medicals and police checks that might be expired by now as I filed "decision ready" ...

Butterfly2014, when our case officer contacted us in Feb, one of the documents requested was an AFP Police clearance, as my husband had now been in Australia longer than 12 months (we had gotten a new Police Check from Norway in October as we knew it was close to 12 months old), so that might be something to think about - although your case officer will request it if they want it (we didn't even know we had a case officer before this request).

You will normally have 28 days to provide the additional information requested.

No idea about the Health Check though - hopefully the case officer will take the processing time into consideration and you won't need a new one - but can't say that for sure, as my husband held off on his medical so as not to run into this situation.

It is 15 months tomorrow for my 820 application so I decided to send an e mail today asking for update. I received the following reply within few hours
" Thank you for your email.
Our average processing time is 12-15 months from date of lodgement and it will be a few more months before this application reaches the front of the queue.
Yours Sincerely,NSW Temporary Partner section"

Any idea if this a generic reply e mail to push people away or a genuine reply for my application?
If it is genuine delay of my application, Do I need to do anything? like get worried, assign an immigration agent to look into my application contents !!!
Anyone got similar reply?
Anyone still waiting for 15 months or more? Please let me know. I appreciate your help
