      Thanks Alan.

      I suppose looking at things objectively if you have to be at retirement age or over for the 804 then some allowances would be expected during the medical. Especially, as it can take over 5 years to grant the visa someone's health can change in that time.

      It would be great to be able to talk to some people who have been through the 804 process.

      You would probably find people over on PIO with recent experience of this visa. Very few people on PIA have gone through this in recent years and I'd not be sure of getting many replies here.

      We got our 804 visas in December 2013 - seven years after first application. The final medical (in Sydney) was much less daunting than we expected. I had stage 3 chronic kidney disease at the time and my wife had a minor stroke a few weeks before the medical. We both passed without problems. I was 74 at the time and my wife was 71. Looking at the records of the Migration Review Tribunal at http://www.aat.gov.au/migration-and-refugee-division it appears that very few people fail the final medical test. If you are going to fail on medical grounds you are far more likely to fail the medical when you first apply, than you are at the final stage.

      At the moment, about 12 months from the time the visa application is lodged, prior to the issuing of a queue date.
