Health Undertaking Form - No contact details

I have received a request from my Case Officer to complete a Health Undertaking Form (Form 815).
As I am applying outside of Australia I’ve been told I MUST provide “Contact details in Australia”.

Unfortunately I do not know anyone in Australia, I don’t know anyone in the UK who knows anyone in Australia.

Would someone living in Australia be prepared to be my initial contact should immigration decide to send me a letter?

Obviously once I’m in Australia I will contact them and given them my own address.

I know other people have asked similar questions and have been told to leave this section blank, but my Case Office insists that it MUST be completed.

Please helllllllllllp.

Do you have any idea where in Australia you're heading and if so perhaps you could see about opening a bank account and see if the bank can arrange something for you, perhaps a local bank manager being a point of contact.
ANZ - Personal - Online Banking have facility for people to open an account when abroad.
And there are some people running settle in type services that may be able to help as well.
If you still have some difficulty, get back with some idea of where you'll initially be going etc. and I or someone may have some other ideas for you.

Hi Wanderer,

Erm, no definite ideas yet on final destination, although it's looking likely to either SA or QLD.

I was hoping that someone would blindly offer themselves up as my initial contact should any postal correspondence ever be sent to me prior to me settling in OZ.

Obviously I know no one actually knows me, but hopefully that part of it could be overlooked!

Whoever you find to nominate as a contact in Australia needs to know how you can be contacted and I'd reckon you ought to settle on an initial location.
Like what visa are you applying for.
What type of accommodation will you be using.
And you could probably use an accomodation location as contact if you make contact with them and they'll have your email address.

Jezswift,
I hope everything has worked out well for you. Not to be too personal, but may I ask what the process leading up to the Health Undertaking form was? I am very nervous and concerned after my medical assessment last week. The radiologist commented that I have a single calcified granuloma, which is an indication of a healed injury (and... one of the many causes could be a childhood exposure to TB). I am confident that I have never been exposed to TB (live in a low risk country, never traveled, taken a few TB skin tests over the years that were always negative, and grew up in the Midwest area of US where these granulomas are relatively common due to an airborn fungus)

I'm just wondering about the timeline, and if what seems to be a non-issue medically speaking (according to the radiologist) will seriously delay my application. Was your file first referred to MOC? Did they tell you why you were signing a Health Undertaking?

Thanks for your help,
Kristin

Hi Kristin,

I was exposed to TB way back in 1974. Since then I've had no after affects, I'm A1 OK.

The reason for having to sign the Health Undertaking is due to Australia being extremely strict when is comes to commutative diseases.

It doesn't matter how minor an infection you had, or how long ago you had it, you'll still need to sign and undergo a health check as soon as you arrive in Australia.

I don't know if it was due to my infection being so looooong ago, but it did not delay my application approval at all.
Oh, I did have to sign a Health Undertaking before my application was approved, this was one of the conditions.

Other than that, the TB seemed to make no difference in my case.

Thank you so much for the fast reply! I'm sure you can sympathize with the stress and anxiety that goes with the immigration process.

If you have a moment, just a quick follow-up:

Was your previous TB exposure indicated in your xray? Or in your medical report? After your case officer received your medicals, what was the response? Did they want additional tests or an additional xray? Or did they immediately send you the Health Undertaking form? Do you know if your case officer referred your medical report to the MOC for review before making a decision?

Thanks again for your information. I have never before used forums or blogs, but it has been really helpful to search through them during this process for my partner and I.

-Kristin

Hi Rhoda - since you already asked that question on another thread, I'm going to close this one since it's so old (over three years old, actually) and is therefore likely to have outdated information in it. It's unlikely jezswift will come back to answer your question, but if they do, they can head over to your new thread to respond (your new thread link is below). Thanks!
