Default Health Operations Australia Update

Below is the Health Operations Centre weekly update for the week beginning Monday 24th November 2008.

"We are currently processing medicals completed OFF-SHORE:

1. Urgent cases (457 visas) not requiring MOC's assessment received on 20th November 2008.

2. Temporary cases not requiring MOC's assessment received on 19th November 2008.

3. Permanent cases not requiring MOC's assessment received on 19th November 2008.

4. Urgent cases (e-visas, adoptions, 457 visas) requiring assessment by a Medical Officer received on 21st November 2008.

5. Other cases requiring medical assessment by a Medical Officer received on 17th November 2008.

The case officer processing your visa application should be your first point of contact regarding any inquiry in relation to the application, including your health assessment results.

If directing an enquiry to HOC, please note that if you are not the authorised contact declared on the visa application forms, then the HOC cannot release any information to you.

For medicals referred by diplomatic bag, it should be anticipated that there is a 2 week delay before they are received for processing at the Health Operations Centre.

Medicals received by courier or through diplomatic bag are opened by a contracted service provider located in our Lee Street offices.

Generally, if documents are received in the morning they will be delivered to HOC that evening, if received in the evening they are delivered to HOC the next working day.


If your enquiry relates to medicals conducted onshore please contact Health Services Australia (HSA). Contact details for HSA offices are available at

Kind regards,

Health Operations Centre
