I am now miserable :-(
Stupid CO. Medicals are required for all non-migrating. How could he not know that? Do you know if electronic or not for the medical? If they get sent to oz might take longer .

FYI ... your co is new at partner visas, he use to do tourist visas.

Sounds like you are close to a decision

I agree with Mish! KitKaat I think your visa will be granted really soon!

Medicals shouldn't take long anyway. It's just the matter of weeks.

In most embassies they don't ask for medicals until some time through the processing of the visa because medicals expire in a year. Especially somewhere like Cairo where some of the applicants are going to be from high-risk countries, wouldn't it actually make sense for them to wait to request medicals so they don't expire and the applicants have to do them all over again? I don't know.

Everyone from Cairo is asked for medicals as soon as you get the case officer which is usually the day the application is received.

In Kitkaat's situation looks like he just forgot to do her stepson.

Wow, that's crazy (and annoying). At least medicals shouldn't delay things too much more... but really, that sucks.

Yes what Mish is explained is true, and today my partner told me that the CO for the first time was really confounded and confessed! my partner asked the CO about form 80 whether it came or not, he replied with "yes" and after two seconds told him "No didn't came!!

Mish, I am not really sure if the medical is electronic or not. Actually it depends on the location if we found panel physician in Damascus it wouldn't be electronic, but if we manage to get the kid to Lebanon therefore it will be electronic. For the second option, it would be mission impossible!!

Because electronically it is sent straight to the embassy. If sent to oz they need to wait for them to get sent to the embassy. Not that it usually matters because Cairo request the medicals straight away.

Do you mean that in Cairo we skip this step ? It sent straight to the embassy not to oz?

It depends on where the medicals are done and if they do them electronically or send them to Australia. The place you get them done should be able to tell you this.
