Default Medical requirement 603

Hello.

I am in the process of applying for my visa. I have received an invite on Feb 11, 2019. I completed the medicals for my family and self on March 07. However on March 12, I have received a doctor query which asked for additional tests (603) for my wife to test for TB. We are clueless on this as there is no history of TB for our full family.

From the information in the tests needed, it shows that it will take 3 months for this medical process as there is some sputum test (culture test) which takes this time.
Anyone faced similar test needs ? Any information sharing on this will help. Does it really take 3 months? Is this hampering a chance ? I am not sure at this stage now if I should pay the full visa fees ?

Sharing on behalf of my friend who went through the same procedure:

1. Take an appointment at the same hospital and proceed with the 603 medical tests.
2. The Doctor will tell you what precautions needs to be taken.
3. When the Doctor confirms the date to start the tests, you will have to go to the hospital for the next 3 consecutive days.
4. The 3 months date is calculated from the 1st Medical date (that you have already done).
5. Both the Culture test & sputum test will be done in these 3 days.
6. In the 3rd month, you will have to go through a Chest X-ray.
7. After that, the hospital uploads the Medical test records.
8. When the Hospital starts the sputum test, you can check ImmiAccount Health Tab - it will mention as Examination - In Progress.

Thanks SG for the detailed information.
We have started the sputum tests and understand that the next x-ray would be there months down the line. We also met the chest consultant who mentioned that the x-ray shows old scars which do not confirm TB. However the process needs to be followed.
I need to know 2 things -
1. For the Visa fees is there a time limit since the invite is received? I understand from talking to a few people that there is a deadline of 45 days since we receive the invite.
2. I have not paid the Visa fees. Should we wait till the end of all these tests results to be uploaded to the system ? Do we have that kind of time?
Thanks for your help !

1. You have 60 days to lodge the Visa from the date you received the Invitation.
Log in to your EOI.
Go to the Correspondence Tab on the top.
Click on the hyperlink on the right of the row item (You are invited). A PDF will be downloaded. You will see the Correct date till when you have time to lodge the Visa.

2. You can proceed with the Visa Payment.

3. This test will take time. You can collect all your documents to upload in ImmiAccount.
