A friend of mine got allocated an officer within 3 week, he then had to do the medical test which he delayed, but once he completed it, he got the PR within 10 days.

Can anyone please tell how many days it take to get CO assigned. I have heard that COs get assigned within the month. Is it true?

That's amazing! Fingers crossed that would be the trend, that would be super awesome!

Do you know if you can only start doing medical and police check once you have an CO or you can do it as soon as you lodge the visa?

After you submit your application they tell you on the left column what documents you need to upload as well as the medical HAP ID that they allocate you so you can book you appointment. Locally here in Australia you need to book it via Bupa outside Australia you need to look it up.
As for the police check I had mine from my skilled graduate visa 476 so I uploaded them. You need to submit them they are required.

Thanks a lot! That's really helpful. I'm having visitors this weekend but will hopefully submit everything on Monday, then I can go book in the medical once I get the HAP ID. Seems like things are moving now that invitation is here! Onto new waiting game!

Not sure what you mean by health requirements. Are you asking what documents we need to upload ? Or what medical examinations we need to perform? Or what ? I'm confused sorry.

For me I was asked to provide Evidence of:

1- Skills Assessment
2- Work Experience
3- Qualifications - Overseas/Australian
4- Character- Police certificates
5- Language Ability
6- Travel Document
7- Birth or Age
8- Health


Though you can have a look at the checklist for more information.
