Hi All,

The occupational ceilings were announced yesterday and by god's grace the 2613xx count has been fortunately increased to 6212.

I hope the count for invitations will come down to 65 points sooner. I will be a 65 pointer on November 1st 2017. With the hope of getting an invite by March or April 2018 , can I do my medicals now ?

P.S: I am currently in India on vacation and the reason I ask is if I do medicals here its quite cheaper than abroad. My wife is also included in the application.

I suggest not to do it now, because there might be a chance that DIBP may ask you to do it again considering the dates you mentioned and your intention of saving money may go for a toss.

Just my guess...

Thanks for the info bud.

If I look at your signature looks like your score was 65 in November and you got invite in December. Hope I get it before April 2018.

I also would not recommend it
The chances of the medicals expiring before grant are very high

Cheers

It is always advisable that you go for medicals only after you get invitation. Infact, I personally feel that one should go for medicals after visa lodge as this would give you ample time before IED. So in my opinion, I would suggest you to go for medicals post invitation only.
