If doctor said its ok you shall not worry.
It looks to me they saw some irregularity (something probably totally irrelevant) and now just want to make sure it is not related to tuberculosis.
You'll be fine...don't worry...

If you have active TB it will mean refusal. This is why you need to go for further tests. What else does the letter say?

hai, the letter says that, a chest clinic will contact me for further tests,
Plz do update about your next stage regarding further medical exam. My chest x-ray was referred on 11/11 and further chest review is needed. So far i have not been contacted and do nothing but waiting coz i was advised not to call them.

Hello,

The Australia visa medical officers take any occurrence of TB very seriously.
My dad is 72 and had probably incurred TB god knows many years ago and it left a dead patch on his lung which is harmless.

When he visited me last year, we had applied for a long term visa and they noticed the patch.
He was referred to additional tests. They call you to a DIAC registered hospital near your hometown and take sputum samples every day for 5 days.
The samples are then tested over time to see if there is any active growth of TB bacteria. if nothing is seen they are happy and they will grant the visa.

My dad got his visa after 5 months BUT the imp thing for us was that HE GOT it in the end.

So IMO if you are not TB active but had it some time back then go for the additional tests and things should trun out good though it will take a lot of time.

Pulmonologist means a chest specialist. Seems your report has now reached and is being assessed by doctors. Once they are okay with it, they will update it as "received" and thus " no further medicals required". You will have to wait and watch. thanks!

If the doctor said everything was fine and no further tests required, you needn't be concerned. All you need to do is to follow up with the clinic to make sure the medical has been finalized and sent to DIBP. Mine was cleared a day after doctor's verdict.
Sure you'll be fine. Just a matter of time.

DIBP are running on a skeleton staff right now. It is the first day back after new year but it is still the middle of the summer when lots take leave.

You have a complex application due to your medical history and you wont be able to rush the process.

Why would you need to apply for the visa again? I don't fully understand your post.
