Default Medibank 457 Visa Health Screen

Hiya all,
Just to let you all know that if you are required to undergo a health screen with Medibank before your visa can be issued do it in plenty of time! You can do this before you apply for the 457 Visa as the results are logged electronically and valid for 12 months. (I wish i had known this)

The medical has just cost me $389 at Medibank in Sydney.
My wife who is Nepalese had the same medical conducted in Nepal for less than $50

We had our medicals on the same day (6 days ago), her results arrived at immigration today, Hand Delivered By a Courier!!! as e health was down in Nepal.

I called Medibank in Sydney and they are hoping my results can be 'finalised' by Friday but could not guarantee it.

Immigration seem pretty on the ball with me though so should be fast when Medibank sort themselves out.

Good luck guys!

hi

This is Suhani

If your subclass 457 visa was granted on or after 14 September 2009, you are responsible for health costs which are incurred in Australia by you and your accompanying family members.

From 14 September 2009 it is a requirement for visa grant that applicants have made adequate arrangements for health insurance for themselves and accompanying family members.this is really very good and informative information.

Hiya Susanni, thanks for replying

Yeah I already have the health insurance set up this was just for the medical examination, TB Screen (Xray), HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Urine sample and general medical check.

I was just pointing out you can book this medical exam before applying for the visa so you have it ready for when they ask for it rather than waiting for 2 additional weeks after you apply for the visa for the results to come back.

Also it seems it would be faster to fly to Nepal and have them hand deliver the results to immigration in Australia than to attend Medibank in Sydney and wait for them to upload the results electronically.

Crazy hey?

Hi th3p4rk2

Funny how systems operate here alright..Had I known I'd have been off to Nepal myself.!
Just a quick one, I had my medical last Monday at Medibank Melbourne. Girl had me fill out my postal details on sticky labels to send us results but she did say they send them electronically aswell. In your case was it the same? Do they really send it on electronically and the case officers automatically get it? I used the ehealth print out with our Diac ref no on the forms.
Im just reluctant to believe there's no more to do!!!
Thanks. Hope yours turned out good.
