Morning all, has any one emigrated when they have been diagnosed with MS, the reason I ask is that my wifes mother has this and we think it may be in the family.
I am unaware of any evidence to say that MS is hereditary. Is there any medical evidence to suggest that?
If you and your wife are healthy then there is no issue. They will look at family history for things ike glaucoma, diabetes etc where there are precipating factors but Im pretty sure not MS.
Have you asked your agent?
With respect, "thinking it may be in the family" is not a diagnosis of MS!
DIAC do not ask for elaborate genetic tests which might or might not suggest a pre-disposition to a particular condition because as soon as one group of doctors/scientists claim to have found The Definite Link, another lot come along and debunk the claims of the first lot.
Ultimately the Court decides what the Law is in Australia. The Judges are very pragmatic. The Law cannot speculate. There is no legal machinery whereby this is possible. Any migrant who is perfectly fit & well today is fit & well enough to migrate as far as the Court is concerned. The gamble rests with the Australian Government, not with the healthy visa applicant.
