Default Received Request for Medicals

I have just received a request for medicals and police clearance certificates from the Adelaide processing Centre for my husband and myself. I applied for an independent skilled visa on 12 December 2001 directly to the AHC. I am a Chartered Accountant (i.e. a non-ITer).

I have in fact sent police clearance and medical examinations on the 12 February so I think they have crossed paths with the request. I have confirmed with the APC that they did receive them.

I am therefore hoping that we will hear something positive in a few months. It sounds from what people have said it may be 4 - 6 months. Does anyone have any ideas about the timing?

Hi,

I'd like to ask a question on submitting supporting documents like police clearance
and medical exmaninations.

Can those documents be sent along with the application ? Or can they be sent before
the AHC asks for them ? Does it expedite the process ?

Thanks in advance regards Ranga

Heidi . Lucky you . Spare a thought for us poor guys who applied to the AHC. I Applied in DEC 2000 AND AM STILL WAITING. Just a bit annoyed that people who have applied a year after me are getting preference because they applied to Adelaide. Best of luck with your process Hope You hear soon . Just a Tad Enviious!!!!

We sent in our medicals and police clearance certificates about a month after sending in our application i.e. before we had received a request.

At this stage there seems to have been a cross over between us sending the documentation and APC requesting it. I have confirmed that they have received it so I am hoping that they have not lost them in the process.

Anyway in answer to your question, I think you can send in your medical reports and police certificates with your application but has there is a risk that because these documents are only valid for 1 year, if processing takes longer you may have to redo them.

I am hoping however that it may speed up the process and therefore felt it was worthwhile to take the risk.

Firstly I had couriered the documents with DHL. You can get confirmation from their website when the documents arrived at AHC and signed for receipt of them.

I then phoned AHC and they confirmed that the receipt of my XRays etc were recorded on their syste.

Hope that helps.
