When to submit Medicals and PPCs?

Can someone please advice me when to submit Medicals and PPCs? CO was assigned on 17th of May 2010. I was asked to submit some new documents but not the medicals and PPCs. Can I submit them even if I'm not asked for them?

- any help would be appreicated.

Are you applying for an offshore visa?

If so, though there is nothing to say not to submit them before being asked, it is all your risk, ie.
. they are usually asked for towards the end of the process for two very good reasons:
1. The application will have otherwise been checked and though being asked is no guarantee of success, you do them earlier and your application is rejected, it's sure guaranteed that your extra expense has not been warranted.
2. Visas when granted are usually issued with a latest enter by date and that is tied in with medical validity [ 12 months ] , so you do it when asked and you'll likely have the best part of a year in which to get organised to travel to Australia, whether it be the actual immigration trip or just for visa validating.
You do the meds earlier and if it is say six months too early, you may be left with just several months in which to do your travelling.
Worse still, the visa processing flow gets held up and you end up with an expired medical and be asked for another, the PCC too perhaps.

Right now, family visa applicants are being told that annual budgeted numbers have been achieved or close to it and so those whose visa would not have been able to be granted within the budget will have a wait of a month or so at least.

Thanks Wanderer.

I've applied for class VE subclass 176 Skilled Sponsored (Relative, Offshore). I was on CSL when applied and CO was asssigned to me within 50 days. Is this a positive sign?
I won't appear for medicals and PCCs unless asked for. I was in United States for the past 8+ years for which I've already applied for identification record from FBI.
Just one more query: I understand that medicals has to be sent by the doctors directly to the DIAC, but how about PCCs?

I am in the same situation. I applied for independent Visa 175 on MODL (C/C++/C# specialist) online on Feb 6,2010 from Pakistan. I read about so many people on different visa time line websites saying that they submitted Form 80, 1221, Medical & PCC at the time of lodging application. I was very confused for last 2-3 days. I was thinking that i made a mistake by not submitting Medical, PCC & other forms at the time of application lodging, which is causing delays, because whenever CO request any document or information, and information is provided to them, then it takes approximately a month, when they get back to my case. But now after reading Wanderer's comments, i am rightly waiting for the request from CO for Medicals & PCC.

I submitted my application lodging documents on Feb 06, 2010. CO was assigned on Mar 18, 2010 & requested me to submit Form 80,1221 along with my wife's IELTS result + CV's of both (mine & my wife's). I submitted all documents on April 29, 2010. CO contacted me again on May 21, 2010 for some updates in Form 80 & i replied immediately with changes. Now waiting for any news from them...

Anyone with the same timeline???

Yep, medicals should be forwarded by the examiners, Health Requirements for Visa Applicants worth a read.
PCCs you have to apply for, get and forward yourself.
If you have not done Form 80 you ought to have done so and should - follow the Checklist - http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener..._checklist.pdf

Thanks Wanderer.

I'm following the online checklist (required document list while checking my application status) and it doesn't show any requirement of form 80. Do you still think I should go ahead and do form 80? The list also shows that FBI clearance and form 47p are requested, but these weren't mentioned by the CO in his email dated 18th May. Should I go ahead and do these too? I want to expedite things and submit things as early as possible but also not before asked for.

Seems as if they may have it different online for the paper Checklist - http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener..._checklist.pdf refers to Form 80 and seeing as it is just really personal details and to an extent repeating what is in an application form, maybe they just extract it from an online application.
I've read reports that it is often still asked for but perhaps with family visas that are more often paper based.
47p? - that's not on Application Forms – Numerical List – Forms 1 to 99 - what is the form title?
And it wasn't required with your application?

Yeah, it does look a little different and depending on each individual case.
Form 47p is Character Certificate - Penal Clearance Certificate. It basically enlists the requirements needed to satisfy police clearance for each country I've lived in for more than 12 months in the past 10 years.
Do you think I should write about these to my CO? CO didn't ask for these in his email but they are mentioned on my online document list as requested.

The PCC was formerly called the 47P as per Character Requirement - Applications & Forms [ interesting that they have not changed the online reference but then Immi documents are full of little gliches ].
Seeing as it is the PCC, I'd not be concerned about contacting the CO.
