Arabella: Partner visa grants can go straight to the permanent second stage if the couple has already been in a married or de facto relationship for at least 3 years at the time of application or 2 years if they have a child together.

I don't know how long it takes to get an appointment for the medical examination in Australia as my partner did his in Germany; over there there was a small choice of panel doctors who had varying fees and wait times. Your best bet is to look up the relevant website (maybe here? : Welcome to Bupa Medical Services). All applicants for permanent visas have to do the X-ray, so yes, you have to do it. They say to leave about 2 hours for the whole process.

GadoGadoGal: Congratulations!

Hi Arabella,

Thank you for the well wishes. I could guess why it took so long, but I don't know for certain. I sent them an email about one month ago (after it had passed the 15-month mark) followed by a phone call about a week and a half ago. It was a long wait by the low-risk country standard.

We went straight to 801 due to length of exclusive relationship with my husband which we substantiated through documentation.

Cheers

Just booked my medical for tomorrow morning. Bit of a nightmare for us ladies hey?! Can't do it when you're on your period, can't do it for five days after and can only book appointments five days in advance?! Nightmare!

Anyway, I can't remember whether I've ever had a chest x-ray. Is that going to be an issue? It says to bring any past chest x-rays with you and it's not something I'm likely to be able to get hold of any time soon if I have...

I know I've had lots of x-rays on my head/face/teeth because of my cleft palate and I know I had some sort of x-ray/ultrasound/something when I had my appendix out but it was a long time ago and I was only half conscious due to the burst appendix... Surely they just really want to know that my chest is healthy now?

I think it only applies to your circumstances at the time of application, so if your child hadn't yet been born at that time you would have to have been with your partner for the full 3 years already to go straight to PR.

I had my medical in Darwin. $363.00 It took about one and a half hours which included some waiting for the next doctor to prod me!! It only took 5 days to make an appointment but a 10 hour round trip because I live in a remote area.

After a body examination, pulse, heartbeat, bang on the knees with a ball on the end of a stick, blood sample, urine sample and chest X-ray they send you on your way. I asked if I could get a copy of the results when they became available because I had paid over $300 but the answer was no.

You have to check your online immi account for clarification that you have passed said medical. I guess if you fail your C.O. will be in touch.

All in all not a bad experience and at least I know I don't have any serious health issues.
