Documentation for the 462

Hi all, I've just applied for the 462 work and holiday visa online and have been waiting for a response for some days now. I was in Australia previously as a student. I have a couple questions:

-if I traveled to Thailand for a week this year would they require me to undergo a health exam even if my student visa gave me a clean bill of health?

-I have a misdemeanor on my record. When applying for my previous visa many years ago, I submitted and passed the character assessment form, and the court faxed AU immigration a letter stating I'd fulfilled my sentence (community service hours). Would they ask me to hand this over again or would they still have it on their records and refer back to it from my student visa application?

-If I submitted online, would they still require two passport sized photos? I'm happy to do it, but I thought it redundant since many seem to get this visa easily with NO documentation. Just wondering why it's taking days for me.

I'd call Immigration to ask these questions but it's very hard getting a live person on the phone on the overseas hotline, so I thought i'd ask you guys since you seem so informative.

I doubt they would ask you to have a full medical after one week in Thailand.

Regarding the Misdemeanor, you will have declare it every time you apply for a visa. I suggest that you include a short submission in your application stating that you have already declared on previous visa applications and that visas have been granted after you had declared the misdemeanor.

If you are submitting online you only have to submit one scanned passport photo online. It should be approximately 480 x 640 pixels.
