Got our package on the 29th of March but can't get a medical until the 19th of May!!! :-( I'm going to keep calling to see if we can get an earlier date (or just in case someone cancels) however I was wondering.... Are we allowed to sched medical appointments at one of the other locations / in one of the other states? Has anyone ever done this or heard of it being done?

Yeah I got that, thanks guys :-) I was just wondering if it matters who on the list he goes to. I know the interview has to be in Sydney which is fine as he lives there but if we could get a medical done from the list in another location, it could possibly speed things up (hopefully). He's going to visit family/friends before he immigrates so might be in the area.

No, it doesn't matter. I lived in South Australia and when i wanted to get my medical done there was no doctors in SA to do it ( i don't know if they have since gotten a new one). I think the guy retired like a couple of months before i had my medical, lol. I went to Melbourne and saw Dr> Okraglik..or whatever his name is....he was excellent, highly recommend him! I booked my medical a bit over a month in advance so i could get the time off work etc but when i rang to make the appointment it didn't sound like he had long wait times.


Finally time for AOS.......

I think he called him but decided to go with the one in Brissy. Got an appointment for the 1st! Wish we'd thought about it a week ago but I'm satisfied with that date. Having to wait until the 16th was too stressful. Whoo one step closer!
