Hej everyone,

I have recently applied for an Australian visa and during this process i remember seering somewhere that I should not complete the medical check until requested to do so. At the moment when I look at my application status/progress page the medical is in state "outstanding" - does anyone know if I should interpret this as a request? I was kind of expecting a personal email from a case officer requesting me to do the medical, but maybe I am expecting to much.

You're not expecting too much, you will get a request from your case officer when you need to do it.

good luck

ITs better to take Medicals and Pcc when Case officer ask to do so.
So that your medicals wont get expired plus you will get enough Initial time entry

Query regarding online application medical

Looking for some answers to a few questions and I found your post and thought you may be able to help. We have an online application and we have been asked to do medicals, but using normal paper forms 160 and 26. Reading the DIAC website I am sure I should have been sent specific forms by email called 160eh and 26eh. My medical is tomorrow and I am slightly concerned as what to do. I am going to try and get through to DIAC tonight. Someone from expat forum did send me a link to get these forms but it does not work. Did you have specific forms?

I was also told over the phone not to get medicals and police checks until requested, and my status on the imm website is the same.

hope this helps,

If you are applying for a 175 visa I believe you can only use paper forms. We used paper forms for our medicals.

I think the online medical system is only for certain types of visa and 175PR is not part of that system

that is only my impression however - I am no expert

Medical & PCC are valid for 1 year. If you are ok with Feb 2011 entry expire date, go ahead and front load it. Only advantage being that you may get your grant letter a month early.

Mine is eGSM 175 and I have an e version of the medial form for download in my online account. Along with each of my dependents. All our information is already populated in the form. I just need to take a printout and give it to the doc.

Thanks for the info just located the forms in my online account - did not even know that existed. Have never come across any info to say check that, or have and its been erased from my memory. Been to th dr and done it the paper way. But thanks again

It is 26 and 160 for medical. For medical check out the imm webpage for list of hospital near your place. Per person it may cost more than 3,000Rs.

For PCC check you local passport office webpage.
My understanding is if you had got your passport under tatkal scheme, then PCC will take more than 1 month. Else if should be a day or two. per person it would cost around 300Rs.

Avinash,

I am basically from Punjab but currently in Mumbai for last 4 years.

From where I need to get Medicals and PCC?

My passport is not under Tatkal scheme, also not from Mumbai, it is from Chandigarh, so do I need to get PCC from Chandigarh or Mumbai?

let me check for medical link on oz site....

Which part of India are you from ?
