    Just wanted to share...

    My wife and I had our medical this morning. We arrived at St. Luke Global City around 07:30 on a Thursday and we were #1 for OZ, it is already #5 for Canadian applicants. (seems a lot of interest in Canada right now)

    Lessons learned:
    - Bring two (2) pcs of passport ID photo. Had to go to market market after the tests to have my photo taken as I only brought 1. Do this after tests.
    - In case you do not have a photocopy of your passport, they have a photocopy machine for it (for free). But still you don't want to be the unlucky one to be there where the machine is not working. So bring two (2) photocopies of your passport ID (NO need for CTC)
    - It took both of us 2.5 hours (10:00) to have all our tests done. (xray, vitals, blood, urine, and physical - totally stripped down)
    - They ask us to come back after an hour to check our xray result if there is additional test, thank God there is none.
    - We returned at 12:00 noon. The clinic is already about 70% full. The nurses seems have NOT yet taken their break, they look irritated already as some kids were noisy. Cashier is closed during this time and some applicants are asked to have their lunch first and just come back.
    - Reception told us that xray is clear and gave our receipts back.
    - If parked in St Luke's, make sure to show the receipt to avail the P45 first 2 hours and P15 succeeding hour rate else it will be really be expensive (P70 first 2 hours).

    Contact number for St. Luke Global City can be found at http://www.immi.gov.au/Help/Locations/Pages/Philippines.aspx

    NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED, just walk in. Mon-Fri (7:00a to 3:30p)

    Hope this helps... [x] Health Examination :)

    @barcode Isang COE lang po binigay ng Company A mo for the 2 different job descriptions? Follow mo na lang yung sa ACS. Baka pinag-isa na ng ACS yung work experience mo for Company A then relevant yung from August 2010. Ang important lang naman kung declare mo sa EOI yung experience mo before August 2010, it should be tagged as non relevant para di sya masama sa computation ng points.

    Just wanted to share...

    My wife and I had our medical this morning. We arrived at St. Luke Global City around 07:30 on a Thursday and we were #1 for OZ, it is already #5 for Canadian applicants. (seems a lot of interest in Canada right now)

    Lessons learned:
    - Bring two (2) pcs of passport ID photo. Had to go to market market after the tests to have my photo taken as I only brought 1. Do this after tests.
    - In case you do not have a photocopy of your passport, they have a photocopy machine for it (for free). But still you don't want to be the unlucky one to be there where the machine is not working. So bring two (2) photocopies of your passport ID (NO need for CTC)
    - It took both of us 2.5 hours (10:00) to have all our tests done. (xray, vitals, blood, urine, and physical - totally stripped down)
    - They ask us to come back after an hour to check our xray result if there is additional test, thank God there is none.
    - We returned at 12:00 noon. The clinic is already about 70% full. The nurses seems have NOT yet taken their break, they look irritated already as some kids were noisy. Cashier is closed during this time and some applicants are asked to have their lunch first and just come back.
    - Reception told us that xray is clear and gave our receipts back.
    - If parked in St Luke's, make sure to show the receipt to avail the P45 first 2 hours and P15 succeeding hour rate else it will be really be expensive (P70 first 2 hours).

    Contact number for St. Luke Global City can be found at http://www.immi.gov.au/Help/Locations/Pages/Philippines.aspx

    NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED, just walk in. Mon-Fri (7:00a to 3:30p)

    Hope this helps... [x] Health Examination :)
