Not sure why people claim medicals to be more expensive to do in Oz... I paid around $500 USD for mine in the states.

It is a free market, no doubt there are fees and audits required to be approved to carry out the immigration medicals.

This could cost the place that carries it out say $10,000 per year in these cost to continue to be approved.

Now when they charge you they don't want to make a loss, so if they only do 10 DIBP medicals a year the cost will be a minimum of $1,000 + normal time that they charge for appointment time say $300 so a min of $1,300.

If they do 100 a year they will/can charge less ie $100 + normal appointment = $400.

It is simple supply and demand in many places - Ukraine was a monopoly and the price reflected. They also stated a Adult and child price, but well once there after 5 hrs travel it all changes and it is cash only.

$1,000 USD 1 Adult and 2 kids.

Agreed... same reason why the cost differs between states in the US or even approved doctors in the same state. I could have opted to do the tests for cheaper in another US state but the cost of fuel or flights would have made it more expensive.

Hi all,

I just received a response from the Victoria office. It did not make sense....

"Please be advised that you have been granted the Temporary 820 visa based on the information and documentation provided by you in support of your 820/801 application at the temporary partner visa stage. Your application met subclass 820 visa requirements at the time of decision and did not meet subclass 801 visa requirements.

The decision on your Temporary Partner (Subclass 820) visa has already been made and cannot be revisited.

Please note that you cannot be assessed for the Permanent 801 visa prior to the eligibility date as the case Officer who assessed and approved the UK820 visa was not satisfied that the information met the legislative requirements for the grant of the BS801 permanent residence visa."


This does not make any sense to me, because we had evidence we lived together on the same address since the start of 2013, had a joint bank account which was used daily, etc. How can it be that the requirements were not met? I'm so confused and dissapointed right now... if I'd known they were not going to give it we could have applied so much earlier. I'm so mad.

They are saying that you did not provide enough evidence to meet the 3 year requirement.

Yes I understand that. However I do not know how we could possibly have had more evidence. We had evidence of me arriving in Aus with my partner on 6-1-2013, evidence of opening a bank account in both our names a day later, letters to both my partner and me to our address (some dated 8 & 16 Jan 2013)... stat decs that indicated were living there from 8 friends and family... what would be enough then?

I imagine you could appeal it (a migration agent would know if you can). I would have thought that they would have asked for more if they were not satisifed if the 3 years.
