Question WHV visa granted without completing Xrays?

Hey everyone!

My girlfriend recently applied for a WHV to come from Germany and we selected Working in an elderly home as an option, which at the end of the visa... informed us she will have to complete a chest X-ray to be granted the visa (which is extremely incontinent and annoying to do in such a short amount of time).

Now a few days down the track... we received an email saying the Visa has been granted... But we haven't done any xray's.

Does this mean xrays are no longer necessary? Has anyone got any advice or experience with this situation?

Any info would be great thank you!

Yes, xrays are no longer needed. I too applied for a WHV from Germany. I don't know about the other subclass though.

Did the elderly home in Australia suggest that? It was common way in the past. I am now working as Disability Support Worker and I didn't need to show any medicals at all.

I think you may have meant inconvenient for the other could be something for the elderly.
But the online systems are probably set up with certain defaults, possibly lumping an elderly home in with a hospital and that may have been flagged for a person to look at rather than the computer program decide which happens with many WHVs and so on someone reviewing it the decision has been that the medical is unnecessary.
If someone had applied from a what is classed as a higher risk country healthwise, the decision could have been different.
So now she has the visa and that's that.

That is great to hear! thanks Wanderer and Cori!

Was it difficult to get a job Cori?Are you German? Did any companies have any problem with English not being you native language? My girlfriend has a degree in social work and has experience in caring and also in some more government roles and were are both a little worried about how the skills and degree will transfer over when she is looking for a job here.

Any info or experiences would be great

Hey Mesmerzied,

yeah, I'm German. Never had problems with English though as I learned it in primary school in New Zealand. Never heard that companies have problems with non-native speakers.
I don't have any experience with social work or caring. And I still found a job. Your gf shouldn't worry too much.
