You have an option of paying through debit card as well..as they are MasterCard/VISA ase well..

Please clarify / correct the below points regarding Medicals for 189 in India:

1. I have to carry filled Form-26 and Form-160.
(I couldn't find any link between these forms and my visa application, because there is no column to mention either TRN or file number )

2. Passport Photocopies of first and last page along with original passport, recent pp photos.

3. Can anyone give me a hint of approximate fees

4. Approximate time taken by hospital to upload details

Any other prerequisites or precautions to be taken care.

Regards,
MSK
Hi MSK,

If you have got request from DIAC to submit medicals then they might have gave you a link/file listing authorised clinics in each city where meds can be done.

If you want to do it beforehand please ask some fellow expats where to get in your city. I dont have the list right now but you can find it on internet.

Then you call up that clinic and ask them what all docs they need. Passport would be must....I was asked only this in Mumbai. The cost was around 1700 something per person, dont remember exact figure though.

They uploaded the details in around 3-6 days....Me and my wife filled some online form there itself and it could be the forms what are you saying. Check with the clinic.

I dont know whether this process has been changed or not...I got 175 pr visa. But I dont think there should be much difference. Please verify with other people or wait for CO's request.

It should not be a problem if you are a normal fit person. Not a precise reply I know, but it can be done easily.

Hello People,

I would like to have some additional information...I would like to know is there any official visa guide for Skilled Independent (189) that how to complete your visa application and which particular documents will be required while submitting the visa application...

Secondly Is Medical or Police clearance some thing that you need to provide while initiating a visa application or these are required at a later stage when requested by case officer....?

Looking forward to hear from you soon,

Regards,
Naveed

Hello Friends,

After recieving invitation recently, I have just gone through 189 E-visa Application and found some observations which deliberately needs your attention please...I would like to discuss them individually one by one,.

1. I have two Degrees for my Nominated Occupation...One is MSC (Hons) (2 year) and other is BSc (Hons) (4 year)...I have got 5 years of employment experience but after my BSc (Honors)...Now i have mentioned MSc (Hons) as my highiest Degree Qualification in Educational history section of EVISA application...My Question is that Will DIAC consider my BSc (Honors) Degree as it is equivelent to the Australian Bachelor Degree which is requirement for my nominated occupation and would there fore grant me points for employment experience of 5 years as well OR it will consider MSc (Hons) Degree in which case, my employment experience would get reduced to less than 5 years...?

2. There is not enough space available for writing my Full Designation and also the Employer name and i have to cut it short...It is also the case with Job Duties section where there is a space of just 2 Job Duties WHERE AS i have 14 JD's...Will the CO go for uploaded detailed document in order to get full understanding or there is any way out in order to expand that space...Please comment...?

3. Can a Visa application without Visa Charges of 3060 AUD be submitted alone or it is a pre requisite condition for the application to be submitted...I mean will the submit button work out with out paying the said visa charge?

4. If i go for the scanning of original / coloured documents, then will i still need attestation Or Not...?

5. I have completed 17/17 steps in Evisa application But till then, I was not able to find any option of uploading supporting documents...?

Please share your expertise in this regard as all of you almost have been to this procedure and your assistance will make quiet easier to understand all the pending confusions...?

Looking forward for your comment,

Regards,
