  1. Thank you! - I will get and appointment with my GP asap
  2. Thank you Pom Queen! - Is @george Lombard a twitter contact? if so, i will certainly make contact, thank you. i have found one on twitter... its a man holding a pot plant... would that be him?!?
  3. Thank you for your quick reply.... its quite stressful knowing our sucess basically will come down to my medical! when you say you were referred, what does that mean and what happened next (if you dont mind me asking!) -
  4. My wife and I are wanting the dream move to Australia. However I have Ankylosing Spondylitis. I have read alot of old threads and wondered if there is anyone with recent experiences of obtaining a visa with this condition or similar conditions and if so, how hard it was. I am 39, in an active job. I have run 3 marathons in the last 4 years. I dont see a consultant anymore as I was dischanged. I manage my condition with fitness and healthy living. I dont take any medication apart from pain killers once in a while. However I do have AS and for example cannot touch my toes! I would be really interested to know if anyone has still obtained a perm visa under similar circumstances as I am unable to get excited we will achieve our family dream and worried AS will result in a refusal...

    Obtaining a PR visa with ankylosing spondylitis

    Kevsan: Really pleased to hear you are happy with the way it went!! - Its also reassuring that the doctor didnt panic upon hearing the words "AS"!! - Did you have your medical in London by any chance? If so, do you mind if I ask how much it cost you?

    Obtaining a PR visa with ankylosing spondylitis

    Thank you for your post pumpkin... I have read various internet pages of mainly people worrying but as with most things on the internet, people don't normally post good news!!! I have discovered that there is no hard and fast rule and each person judged on their own merits/conditions...Thank you for the advice.

    Obtaining a PR visa with ankylosing spondylitis

    Thank you for your reply 'nearlythere1' obviously really sorry to hear about your OH having had cancer.... but very pleased to hear that you are both got visas! - Its a worrying time because obviously its all we think about now and you just wish a doctor could spend a day with you to see you live a normal life rather than just read words on paper!!

    Obtaining a PR visa with ankylosing spondylitis

    Many thanks for your reply.... Will be VERY interested to know how you get on and the doctors reaction to hearing you have AS. (I can be contacted via pm if you'd prefer it to remain private) I'm hoping they take in to account the impact on daily life now rather than just seeing the words AS and making a judgement! Really please to have found someone in similar circumstances..... I really hope it goes well for you and GOOD LUCK! Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers.

    Arthritis

    Dear all. I wonder if anyone can help who has had a similar experience. My wife has been offered a job in Australia and can apply for a visa under the code 186 sponsored nomination visa. We are just awaiting our code before we can apply but I am very worried about the medical. I would be going within her PR visa as her spouse. I am 36 and in my early 20s I was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis which is a form of arthritis. Apart from the odd pack of over the counter pain killers I have not been on any medication for any long period of time and in fact haven't taken any medication for the last few years. I am not very flexible but have maintained an active job for the last 12 years, never taken a days sick in relation to AS and am fit enough to have ran two london marathons. However.... As ever google can be the place of doom! And I have read many reports of people having PR visas refused because of the condition. Are there any success stories out there to give me confidence?? Also, can you undertake the medical prior to paying out the large visa application fees? Help!!
