Hmm, sounds to me like duff information (and I know that if you should be able to rely on answers to such questions from anyone, it should be DIAC, but sadly that's not always the case!)

Might just be worth another check.
Good luck, Jim
Just wanted to let you know that the NMBSA have witheld my application for registration until I have sat the IELS english exam! Apparantly anyone who applies for registration after 1st July 2009 will have to sit the exam. It costs $350 and you need to get a grade B or level 7 in each category to pass. Mine is on the 8th october in Adelaide and I can't apply for either my nursing registration or our permanent residency visa til then!
Good luck with yours
Just been on DIAC website http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1163i.pdf this link takes you to a table which you can use to determine wether or not you need to have a medical and CXR. and according to the table as we are going on a temporary visa and currently live in a low risk country (UK) that only I need to have med & CXR as I will be working in a hospital.
Hope this info is correct as I travelled to York on Tuesday for it doing and I will be a tad peeved if we have to go again as its over a 3 hour round trip.
