I think my partner did his medicals too early

I'm sponsoring my soon-to-be husband (3 days) on a partner visa and the application is going in next week. So we're in July - we got his visa medical done in January because at the time I was on holidays from uni and we wanted to get things out of the way.

Silly me, I was quite ignorant at the time, I didn't know that the medical was only valid for a year..... so unless ur visa is granted in 6 months it means we have to pay for it again Is the application likely to take more than 6 months even if we are providing all the police checks and the medical results ? We have a very complete and well documented application....

I don't no why I'm making this thread, I just had to admit my foolishness.

Well, if the results have not been openned, I would hand them in anyway. You may be lucky to get a shorter processing time, but I there's not gaurantee. Just explain your misunderstanding and see what they say.

They may have to be done again anwyway when it comes time for his PR grant.

When I lodged in person they said the processing time is 9 - 12 months! I would hand it in anyway and if they ask for another they ask for another one. Congratulations on your wedding! And by the way I'm based in Sydney as I think you asked me on another post? Good luck!

Ever heard of Ehealth? Your not supposed to get medicals done until requested to do so. (I assume applying for 309 offshore visas?)

If you're applying onshore you're fine to get your medicals done before you lodge. If you're applying offshore you have to wait until they're requested.

as everyone else said, i would just give them to DIAC with your application and see what they say. from my understanding, if you application's processing time ends up going beyond the validity of the medical results then (at the time of expiry) they will request that you get it done again.

also, congrats on your wedding and goodluck!

eeep, can you give me a reference/link to this??

my partner is lodging an offshore 309 and we had her medicals done here in australia before she went home because it was a lot easier/quicker to get an appointment in australia and because the doctors overseas charge nearly three times as much!

i hope this is still ok and we haven't wasted $300!!

Hi Dan,

Here is the link Health Requirements for Visa Applicants

Although after re-reading I think you'll be fine as it says: Applicants outside Australia
Do not attend a health examination before you lodge your visa application unless the information about your visa specifically asks you to do so. Otherwise, you will be advised by the department if and when to attend a health examination.

And the partner visa does specifically ask for a health check so all good. I think immi are just covering their backs so people who are applying for a visa don't automatically go and get a health check if they don't one for their particular visa and also in case the health check results expire. That's my interpretation anyway...
