Immigration do warn everyone that police checks and medicals are only valid for 12 months for immigration purposes and that it's best to wait until contacted, so I assume people that do them without being requested know the risk and are willing to take it in hopes of a speedier approval by having a decision ready application. This is what I did and I was prepared to pay the cost to get them done again if necessary.
actually another thought . The checks could be done about 6 moths or so after application lodged to give less chance of having to do them again. I imagine theydo not even start to process applications for 6 months or so anyway and one can forward further info at any stage . I assume you would need toknow where to get medical done and only they can tell you that ?

Yes, many people wait six months but it's still a risk as as many still take greater than 18 months and others even over 2 years.

The medical locations are listed on the website. The applicant can choose any of the approved locations they like. In fact, it's probably best to call around for pricing as it can vary between locations.

Looking at the 309 grants on this forum, so far this year, and with 79% having been done in 12 months or less (50% were done in under 9 months.), it would only affect a smaller number, about 20%, appearing to exceed the 12 month validity.

With the fastest 2 of those grants taking 2.7 and 3 months, I would suggest getting the Medicals done within 3 months, unless you know you have probable issues that might make for a longer processing time.

It is down to choice, and whether you wish to risk having to pay again, if yours ends up being a longer than average application.

17% of the 29 grants, seen so far, were actually granted in less than 6 months.

Some applicants do not get asked for a new medical.

I would email immigration and ask if a new one is needed as your application is now at x months.

I'd just wait to see if they'll require you to redo it. I've seen a few folks whose medicals expired, but weren't asked to redo them and they got grants. So, if it were me, I'd just sit tight and see. As for Police Checks, I have seen them ask for new ones, so if you need to redo those, I'd go ahead and upload new checks.

Hi all, I am actually not sure to posting this. I just got visa granted both subclass 309 and 100. I lodged it by myself online 24 June 2018, took me 10 months and 21 days (I count !!!!) . One thing I learnt for this waiting time I suggest you go out and have some fun meanwhile you wait for visa to be granted. It won't happen over night but it will happen. Be patient , stay positive and enjoy your life.

mine will expire soon too but I'm not doing it again unless they ask for it. I found out that sometimes they don't ask to redo it, so why wasting time and money.
