Exclamation De facto visa medical

Hi all!

I hope you can help me, I'm going for a medical soon and I'm a little worried, I'm not exactly the fittest person in the world,

What do they test on the medial? Is it a fitness test as well? Would I be required to go running on a treadmill? Also I have a temporary knee injury would that go against me?

Any help would be great
Thank you all!!

Hello, no threadmill & those stuff they test to check for Tuberculosis & HIv(Aids) though i believe overall health is being checked as well. Dont worry too much, i dont think they would pick on your knee problem.

When I went in for my medical, they did ask me to jump around a bit (the doctor didn't really say why--I've gathered from forums/blogs it was to assess if I had neck or back problems?) so if they ask you to do this and it's something that could irritate your knee, just mention that you've had the knee injury. No running on a treadmill, though. The injury, and lack of fitness, won't count against you. They're really looking for health issues that have a long-term cost for Australia, both in money and resources.

are you going within Australia?? I went in December and I had the following

1) height,weight,eyes tested,urine sample
2) Chest X-ray - TB check
3) blood test - HIV
4) panel doctor who prodded me a bit,checked my ears and eyes,tested reflexes and gave me a brief chat about what would happen if my HIV test came back positive.

no treadmill or oral exam

Yes. Although depending on how overweight you are talking about, they may require you to provide medical reports confirming that health risks that are associated with higher body fat levels do not apply to you.

Hi guys

I'm going for my medical a week today and have just logged on to update my medical information etc. I notice on my e-medical page, where I print the referral letter it states that the visa applied for is: BC 100 - Spouse (Permanent).Does this mean I am being considered for subclass 100 rather than the 309 I had applied for, or is this just what they all say and everyone has the medical carried out against the criteria for the permanent visa?

Thanks!

Well, it says that on mine too & I don't fit the criteria for being considered for a subclass 100 visa.

I assume it's because you are applying for both subclasses at the same time and all permanent visas require a more comprehensive medical examination.

This is correct. On mine it said 801, and I was granted the 820. It's just that you are technically applying for two visas at once, and they label things with the more permanent option.
