Default Visitor Visa Medical Clearance Timelines

Hello Everyone,

Good Day.

We have applied Visitor visa(Subclass 600) for my mother from India on 22nd April 13(for 12 months period). Till now, the CO at india are waiting for the medical clearance from HOC, sydney.

Could anyone please suggest how long medical clearances are taking now. (its been more than 5weeks for us now).

Also, can we apply for another tourist visa for 3months, when this is under process. (Hoping that 3months would take less time).

Cheers for reading this and looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Uma,

We are still waiting for the grant and we have also applied for 1 year visa. When i called Aus High Comm, New Delhi, they are saying to wait for one more month.

I too have my due date towards end of july. . As an alternative, planning to raise visa for 3months for my mother in law. I suggest to plan for an alternative to be on safer side.

will let you know if i hear from them.

it seems there are some global delays in Sydney medical timelines .. takes atleast 2 months it seems . Have applied for my parents on may 13th ...my father got it immediately he had only xray . my mother was given 2-3 tests due to a past Tb scar hence awaiting hers . Do buzz when you get yours . did you apply for 1 year visa ?

In the same boat ....father's visa cleared. Mother's visa pending medical clearance. Why do they make it such a big issue for visitors. Ridiculous. I am due in October. Anyone have any news on their pending visas?
