Folks,

Can I go for Health Check before I get the invite ? I believe it is valid for 2 years. The reason being, for practical reasons my spouse shall not be able to take up Health Check after the invite.

1) Can we do that, is it permissible ?

Also,

Once I get the invite and make the payment online, I heard we will be getting the bridging visa.

2) What bridging visa entitles me to do ?

Thanks,

1) Yes.

My Health Declarations (MHD) is a service for clients who have not yet lodged a visa application and would like to do health examinations before lodging a visa application.
Doesn't matter you received an invitation or not.

I believe it is valid for 2 years.
Double check if it's 1 year or 2 years, I forgot.

What bridging visa entitles me to do ?
If you are already in Australia and hold a substantial visa, you will get a bridging visa type A.

Hi @MysticRiver @Rakshanda I would like to take the Health check examination in Melbourne or Sydney even though I have not received an a visa invitation yet -I still want to do it so that I have all documents ready when I receive it-. Do you know where can I find information on which clinic I should go and the price of the examination? Thank you

For medical check inside Australia, you have to do it in BUPA visa medical setvice (1300 794 919). You'll find all the information including cost on their website.

Note that if you want to do it prior to visa application, you have to follow certain procedure called My Health Declaration.
