Hi, I just wanted to re-itterate the info about the Meds, and thank people that have already contributed to this thread. We were asked to have a new Med Exam done for our 2 yr old daughter by our CO. I thought this would be because she's been to hospital twice in the time we've been here (adenoids out and grommits in!) or maybe because she was under 1 when she had her first med in the UK.
Anyway, I booked her in, keen to get PR asap, and emailed my CO to clarify she DEFINITELY needed the medical. I had no reply, and gave up after being on hold for 1hr 40 mins on the phone.
I got to the Medicare Med Place in the City and paid my $200 for her medical. She was weighed and measured, and we went back to the waiting room to wait for the dr. While we were there I checked my emails on my phone and got one from my CO saying, No, it was a mistake, she didn't need a Medical, and our PR was granted!!! Luckily the receptionist was v understanding and refunded me and off I went!!
If I hadn't have read this post I wouldn't have known that Meds weren't necessary and to query it - so a big Thank you to those that posted on this thread.
One quick question: Now it has been granted where do I get my visa labelly thing for the passports from? How soon can we register for Family Benefits and what do we need to take to Centrelink???
