Read here for instructions: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/...th-examination

It explains how paper applications can do it.

Yeah, just read it. says:

Please wait until your visa officer contacts you, do not use the My Health Declarations service if you have already lodged a visa application. It will delay processing of your visa application.
Note: To minimise processing delays, you should complete your required health examinations as soon as possible.

so we got no options, just wait then.

lodge a paper visa application, you need to access the login screen at eMedical Client Login.

Enter your family name, HAP ID and date of birth. Enter the CAPTCHA characters that you see or hear and click 'logon'."

The CO can give you the HAPID but there is probably another way to get it as others in the past had done it. Just search the forum.

A quick google can't find out how to do it... maybe you can't but I thought I remembered reading people who had done it.

Either way, doesn't really matter if you just wait for a CO. You don't have to get to done in 28 days, just respond in 28 days. So if you're overseas when you get the request and can't do it where you are, make an appt in Australia for when you're back and upload an explanation.

The 28 day thing is because they can't sit around waiting for people not to respond. If you are making an effort to complete the requested items, then you're fine. If you can't supply them in the timeframe, you supply proof that you have an appt even if that appt is after the 28 days.

FBI checks at one point were taking up to 4 months, and immigration recommends to wait until they request for police checks. It would be a bit unfair if they gave 28 days to supply knowing that and denied a visa. As long as you respond saying "Hey I applied for it. Wait times are 4 months. I'll upload when I get it." This is just an example.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I am much less stress now.

Thanks

Thanks. I should have it ready to go within a day or two, so hopefully before they get back to the application.

Hey,

I'm looking to lodge my 820 partner visa soon - cannot believe the current processing times!.

Quick background, i'm originally from the UK, currently on a 457 visa and applying for the 820 on my partner's visa (also originally from the UK) he has held PR for around a year now and is just applying for Citizenship this month.

A quick question, and i'm really sorry if it's been answered before there's so many responses on this thread it's hard to go through it all, what was the waiting time for the CO to request you apply for your Health Checks and Police Records?

I've been advised this usually happens around 2 months after application, but i find this optimistic after reading a few of the posts on here and given the current processing time of 20+ months.

Thank you

I am new to this forum and wondering whether anyone else has the same situation as myself.

I applied onshore for my 820 visa on the 12th September 2017, I’m from the UK with my partner being an Australian citizen.
We received notification from the Jakarta office that police checks for both countries and medical was required. I submitted all this information on the 26th Feb and was wondering if anyone has had their visa granted from this office, and what waiting time they had?

There is no specific time frame for those items to be requested. It happens when they look at your app and want those things from you. That can be in one day or one year or even more.
