Hi Guys,

Just wanna inform you that today I receive an email from DIAC informing me to do my Police Checks (Character) and my Medical Examinations.

I am a little bit (well... VERY, actually) surprise that they contacted me so soon.

My timeline thus far is as follows:-

Paper Application Lodged and Received by DIAC = 8th October 2009

Medical and Police Checks Request by DIAC = 21st January 2010

So that's like 3 months after I sent in my application. I thought I have to wait at least a year or so.

So guys, after I complete my Police Checks and Medical, how soon do you think the Visa will be approved?

Thanks

Hi
Do not worry. Three months is normal time. Total time should be around 8 to 10 months depending upon the individual circumstances.

Congratulations on your CO allocation. Get the Medicals and PCC done at the earliest and then relax. One day you will be surprised with the VISA approval email.

:clap2:

Hi Hari...

Thanks... I got my PCC Certificate of Good Conduct from the Malaysian Department of Foreign Affairs within 2 days (got my friend to go there personally), and I've scanned and emailed to my Case Office on the 29th Jan 2010. Got an acknowledgement from them.

And on the 30th Jan 2010, I got my Medicals done with with my wife and kids... Dr said will wait about 2-3 days for Blood Test result to come back then they will courier it to Australia immediately.

Fingers Crossed!
