Hi livefree,

When you complete your medical it is valid for 12 months and must still be valid at the time the case officer is deciding your application. Your initial entry date in which you have to enter and activate your visa once granted is determined by the validity left on your medicals and/or police checks. (whichever is the oldest) So if the case officer grants today and your police check was completed 6 months ago and your medicals 9 months ago you will be given 3 months to enter Australia and activate your visa. For our clients we would advise that they do the medicals now so the application is complete. As you have obtained your police check this will be the oldest and determine your initial entry date. Generally if all documents are provided it will speed up the processing of applications. DIBP currently advise it is taking 7 weeks from lodgement to be assigned a case officer for subclass 190 visas. However there is no timeframe from being assigned a case officer to complete the assessment process and some higher risk countries can take a little longer to be security cleared.

Owen

You can do health checks before you get an officer.
It's up to you.
Waiting time is around 7 wks to get case officer. Once you have one I think it's 4 wks
To provide additional info.

I don't know how long it is to process after that depends if they want more evidence.
I've got my health checks organised so that I have no additional delay when I get the case officer.

thanks bunnyfuture for your reply but there is part of site that trouble me saying

"I have already lodged my Australian visa application

You will be advised by email or by your case officer what health examinations you need to do (if any). You will then be requested to complete these examinations within a certain time period. Please wait until your visa case 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 after your case officer has advised you to do so."


what do you think
