Hi All,

Me and my wife recently got our Australian Permanent Residency Visa Grants on 21st Sep 2017. We need to make our first trip before 21st Dec 2017. We are planning to make a short visa validation trip before 21st Dec. But my wife was required to sign the Form-815, which requires us to contact Bupa migration medical services after our arrival. Because we are only planning a short trip, I wanted to know the exact duration and cost of the Health declaration process. I contacted Bupa about the same, and here is the reply i got :

Dear Siddharth,

Thank you for your email.

The standard referral process after the registration of health undertaking can take between 3 to 6 months.

Generally, the health undertaking appointment does not require the client to pay, it is organised by the clinics approved by the Department of Immigration; but in the case where you get charged by the clinic, you will need to contact us or the Department of Immigration for further advice.


Did anybody else recently go through the same process? And how much time did that take?

Hi,

Nothing to worry. You dont need to pay anything. Let them know your arrival only if you r planning to stay permanently. So they can send you the time and date for consultation.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. So, am I not supposed to contact Bupa within 4 weeks of my first arrival in Australia?

Yes. Only when you intend to stay for a longer period, you may let them know that you are available for medical analysis.

Hi Sunil

Cannot say for sure, because my wife's case was never shared with Bupa. She had some health complications because of which her medical took longer than expected (more than 2 months). And she had to sign a Form-815 before we got the grant.

Hi Rama, What has been the progress? Did you receive Grant? Whats the IED.

Mine is a 190subclass -NSW visa lodged case. (Lodged -20Jun, PCC,Medical-8thAug, Form 815 submitted on 23Aug)
Could you please confirm if generally First entry Date for PR activation in Australia is 6months from your Latest Medical date? or 6 months from submission of Form815 for Health Undertaking? Or is there no such 6 months relation?
I am trying to put a relations to it, to help me plan better.
Could you please give your suggestion.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Once you submit form 815, It's apparent that you've agreed to undergo few health checks after you enter Australia. You'll receive an Email from Bupa to confirm your entry date and residing address and other details..

You'll be notified via post to attend medical checks.

Cheers

Hi All,

Can anyone please let me know if it is mandatory to provide an Australian contact address/phone in Form 815. It will be hard for someone who doesn't have any family or friends located in Australia?
Is there any waiver for such guys?
Appreciate your response

Thanks

Thank you Alyonka for the response. But the Form 815 clearly asks for Australia contact only

Bullet 4: Contact details in Australia

Note: Give full residential address, including postcode and telephone
number where possible. If you do not know what your address in
Australia will be, you must give the name and address of a person in
Australia who will know how to contact you (for example, a relative,
a friend, your employer or a staff member at your proposed study
institution).

Unless you have a close family member/relative or close friend, I am not sure if anyone else would like to provide his address and contact details to you to be provided to Australia Immigration.

Would you leave it blank otherwise? Can anyone share from his/her own experience if it is ok to leave it blank?

Much appreciate your responses

Thanks

Just sharing a personal experience of a friend of mine.
She also didn't have anyone in Australia and had no choice but put her home country residential address.

Hello

Just another query - Seeing the delays getting CO to work on your case, will it be good idea to upload the Form 815 offhand without CO asking for it as anyhow he will be looking for it once he looks at the case. If I upload it after CO asks for it, it will further lead to 2-3 months before next action. And I got to know that the Medical of persons with latent TB is valid for just 6 months. So Medical would have to done again otherwise.

Looking for your valuable suggestion in this case

Thanks

Great.. I was bit worried about providing this Australian contact info.
