Been away for a while as nothing hapenieng, until we got into our medicals. Despite a minor blip and having to go back to redo a sample, we got them sorted in November. meanwhile I have been hasling the CO to get some kind of decision - it's only been 12 months and others have applied later than us and got in somehow (Not at all frustrating!).
I finally got an answer yesterday, followed by an email from Sydney to say that they need HIV tests from us all. I understood that they weren't required for 475 visas so we didn't get them done origianlly.
Anyone know any different or know any reason that this might come up. We're not healthcare workers etc or have medical history / lifestyles that puts us in at risk categories; we just go to work and bring up our kids in this godforsaken place (but hopefully not for much longer!).
Any info would be great. At the end of the day, its juts more expense and hassle as we don't live near our panel doctor (long story!), so if I can avoid it I will.
