Think this should be in the visa's section.

How long is a piece of string?

There is no set time scale, but fyi, I had my xrays on the 24/10/08 I think, and my visa was granted 25/11/08.

If anyone has an idea they're lying Generally, unless there are health issues the meds are valid for one year but there is no way of knowing how much longer you would have to wait for a decision from DIAC. It varies on the visa, on the CO dealing with your case, with your application etc etc.

Be patient and try and get on with your life, pretend Australia doesn't exist (no I know, it's impossible but try). It's the only way to pretend you're in control of your own life.

Unfortnately there isn't any such thing as a general idea. Moneypenny is right that most medicals and Xrays are valid for a year, but there are many factors that affect the timeline after you send them in. Some visas take longer to process than others because they require more verification of documents, for example. Also if there are an issues with the medicals or Xrays, even something that won't affect the visa,like one member having asthma, then the grant will be delayed while the medicals are signed off.
I have to agree with Moneypenny, anyone who says they can quote you a timelne is lying - or dreaming - as it can be anything from a few days to several months, I'm afraid.

Has the Immi Forum come to such a point that no one can see a lighthearted comment for what it is? For crying out loud, I am so over people getting arsey about a helpful bit of advice.

Many people get stressed about every aspect of the migration process - totally understandably but the general point is that they shouldn't because it doesn't help. I'm very pleased that you're not, however I obviously don't know you and I'm very sorry I suggested you might be and that you've been offended that anyone should imagine you are.

Hi moneypenny glad to see youve changed ("for the better,you must have a new fella or something!")only joking
Can I just say we sent our meds off in April08 then when April 09 passed aand nothing was mentioned by the diac we presumed it was ok as they were "processing".But in March this year they informed us they have expired
