    Thanks to your post, I was able to generate HAP IDs for my family. Our invitation to apply will expire in 9 May and we will still have to schedule our Medical Examinations this coming Monday. So far my application is already in “Ready to Submit” state, but I have selected “Yes” in the question about having the medical examination done in the past 12 months and just indicated “AWAITING RESULTS” in the details, just to link the HAP ID I generated manually. Is it OK to submit our application now even if we are yet to have the checkup done? I’m getting pretty nervous about the deadline since it’s so close.

      Normally, the process is to pay fees and submit the application and then generate HAP IDs.
      So, you can submit your application.

    Hi Anil,
    my partner got invited for 190 and we are gathering all documents for lodgment at the moment. We are preferably aiming for a direct grant so want to have everything ready and submit all together. However, like you say there’s no option for 190 visa so should we just tick 189 and do it under this visa type? We don’t want any delays and not sure if this wouldn’t be an issue?
    Please advice based on your experience, thank you.

      My suggestion is to upload all documents in immiaccount, pay fees and then generate HAP ID for your 190 visa application. This is the fastest way for your case.

    Hi Anil,
    Panel physician has uploaded my spouse’s health assessment status in ImmiAccount and it’s showing ‘Examinations ready for assessment – no action required’ instead of ‘Health clearance provided – no action required’. Is this normal.. ?

    Hi, I have got he invite and I clicked on Apply for VISA. Is it ok to create new application to generate HAP ID for medical test or follow the existing application and do the medicals after submitting the visa application. Please guide.

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 19 Mar, 19 at 8:03 am

      It is better to do the medicals after submitting the visa application. Do NOT create a new immiaccount just for medicals after getting invite.
      You should use the same immiaccount for medical and visa invite submission.

      You cannot do medical without HAP ID. You should contact the immaccount support.

    I have given my passport for renewal and waiting for the same. Meanwhile , i am thinking to get my wife’s medical done. So two questions here.

    1. Can I create only my wife’s HAPID? If yes how?

    2. If no for 1st question , can I use my old passport details for generating her HAPId to get her medical , and then with my new passport can I create HAPID and do my medical later.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Hi Anil,
    I have undergone the medical tests required after hap id generation and the status of health assessment has been changed to “Health clearance provided – no action required”. Now I need to generate a pdf of health certificate from here but I can’t find any link. Can you help me with this?

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 6 Mar, 19 at 9:26 am

      Why do you need a PDF file for health results?
      There is no option to see or get your Health reports.

      It must be a temporary system maintenance issue. You can try again.

    Hi Anil,

    While generating HAPID, noticed below note in the immiaccount : Note: The department will not provide this person with advice regarding health examination results until they have lodged a visa application.

    Does this mean we can get the results of the medical only after placing the visa application?

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 26 Feb, 19 at 11:31 am

      The results are not shared to you by doctor. They are uploaded directly to immiaccount and you cannot view them.

      What the message means is that there will be no evaluation of your medical results by immigration case officer until you have lodged your visa application.
