Congratulations! You must be over the moon! I've just read your blog there - very thorough and detailed. I definitely would have benefited from reading that when I was applying.

I just had a request from my C.O for my medical assessment last week and have been given 28 days to complete it, so hopefully once that's out of the way I will have some good news soon enough too!

Hope you're celebrating in some form!

Hi guys, just thought I'd come on and make MY announcement...after 15 months my 820 has just been granted! I'm over the moon, and very relieved I must say, compared to some other users on here...my evidence wasn't the best. My best advice to give at this point is: DON'T STRESS. I know it's easier said than done, but in the weeks leading up to my application submission I was a wreck. I made myself very sick, and I wouldn't want that to happen to anyone else on here. Moreover, while I suggest to wait 3-4 months before submitting medicals/police checks, I wouldn't wait until last minute like I did.

Timeline

Applied for 820: 17 October 2015
Automated Request for More Info: 26 July 2016
AU Police Check Submitted: 2 August 2016
Medical Completed: 13 September 2016
US State Police Check Submitted: 7 October 2016
FBI Check Submitted: 30 October 2016
Personal Request for Additional Info: 16 January 2017
820 Granted: 25 January 2017

Good luck, guys! Silly question, but is there any thing I need to submit for 801 for the near future? There wasn't anything in my grant letter about it aside from saying immi will contact me again around the 2 year period.

Forgot to mention, I applied from Melbourne online.

I'd say it's best to wait 4 months, lest your application takes 15 months to process as is being estimated.

As you will probably be updating evidence over the course of the 12 month processing period, the whole "its better to get it over and done with" argument is nullified IMO. Usually, you can only schedule a medical exam no more than one week before your appointment. So, it's not like you'll be waiting a long time. Foreign federal police checks take the longest to process.
I think it is no matter when you do your medical, i done my 1 week after i applied cuz if it something wrong with your helt it is better to know it earlier and lot of the peole here said that is valid for 18 monhts and my police chek i done in October

A lot of people just seem to scramble for the medical before applying, but like you said, I guess it doesn't matter. For me, there would be very little to near impossible chance that I had HIV or TB. The medical was actually very cut and dry in my experience. Male nurse took my vitals + urine sample. Male doctor just felt my lymph nodes and pelvis...now that I think about it, he really didn't do much ha ha. Then I had the chest X-Ray and had my blood taken. Very simple! I was under the impression medicals were only good for 12 months, so due to the processing times taking 12+ months, I thought it'd be better for medicals to be taken a few months later.

Wow, congrats Sirilejeune & HRose! I am happy for you both!! And still eagerly awaiting my approval....I think I am officially waiting the longest in this group currently...from a low risk country - I just went and checked and while I am able to add more evidence on my account, my sponsor is no longer available...and still says approved too (though the approved bit has been there for awhile now)....I literally JUST clued in that my police check from Canada expired this week I did it thinking 15 months would be the absolute longest I would have to wait and allowed for that...but also I had heard it can take ages for them to come in, and had read that several people had their fingerprints rejected so I wanted to make sure it was ready to go. Now I regret doing it so early. I am torn between ordering a new one (It cost a fair bit of $$, and it did take a fair amount of time too...and finances are tight at the moment), or waiting to see if they will just accept it as a few days past the one year (assuming they get to my app soon!!).

Those of you who have just been approved, did immigration contact your 888 witnesses? Nobody on our application has been contacted as of yet, so I am wondering if I still have a ways to go...or perhaps they don't always contact them?? With tomorrow being a holiday, I am not feeling very optimistic I will get my answer this week. Though it would be fabulous if I did

Did Immi ask you to supply the police cert or did you do it prior to that - based on other posts I've seen in this forum, if they asked for it and it expired the case officers have been known to ignore that fact...how correct this is I don't know, but I've seen more the one post in relation to police checks and medicals that were asked for.
