Great, I just got my Medibank envelope and now I don't know if I should open it to see if they request further testing (with sealed results inside) or leave it closed :-P

Yeah, I plan to ask DIAC about this. The panel Doctors I saw in Chicago was a really suspect set up, their xray machine looked like something from a museum etc. There are two places to go in Chicago, I don't know what the other one is like. Kentucky seemed like a wise choice by you. There are none in Wisconsin either.

I had just expected the envelope to have something on it saying "Only for DIAC" or something... if it wasn't for this forum I would have never known!

PS I had read I would get my results in a sealed yellow envelope... My envelope is white, looks like it suffered abuse in the mail and my address is a sticker I had to write my own address on atthe clinic... it just doesn't look the part, hence my hesitation. I had expected such important test results to be, you know, double sealed or in some sort of impressive envelope... But I realize I am weird!

It just looks like the kind of envelope with regular mail that might be a referral. What if it is a referral or contains one?

Essentially, while you pay for the medical checks, the results belong to DIAC.
Should the assessors find a broken seal or envelope, they will request you repeat the checks, at your expense, or worse, reject the application.

The checks won't contain a referral. Suppress your curiosity
You'll know when your application is approved.

Hey,
when I got my results back (in Australia) they were in the small white envelope that I had to write my details on INSIDE an A4 envelope that looked like regular mail.
If it is the same in your case you can open the big envelope and find the small one inside saying DO NOT OPEN. It is pretty easy to determine, just feel around a bit. However if you are unsure don't do it. Oh yeah and of course don't open the actually sealed envelope! It should be sealed with some sort of tape.

Thanks for the clear description! Yeah I'm just going to leave it. I'm so confused. My envelope is small, half of A4.

I called Medibank and they were very helpful (not). Lady practically barked at me "IT SAYS DO NOT OPEN, SO DO NOT OPEN"... except it doesn't say "do not open". Nowhere on my envelope does it say anything, just my address - no "do not open". Now I'm really confused.

I'm just gonna leave it. Whatever. If it says something I should have read before applying I'm sure DIAC will send it back to me after opening it.

The panel doctors are generally pretty good. I've had experience with two practices and both times, the doctors were professional and knew exactly what DIAC requires.

They have many patients who go through the medical check process, so they're usually very experienced. One morning when I was with my fiance, the only patients the doctors seemed to have, were prospective emigrants.

You can be fairly certain then, that DIAC will find your doctor's report gives the Aus govt the information they're looking for, so you don't need to open your envelope.
