Hi everyone, I've been in Australia for 3 years now. My mum and dad applied for a retirement visa last year - for those that don't know this involves paying $100k to cover future medical expenses etc. and the main reason for coming over is to have the support of myself and my sister (who also live in Oz) in their old age. Unfortunately my dad was diagnosed with bowel cancer recently - it was caught in the very early stages and with careful observation he should be fine. Obviously this has caused great worries as it looks like their visa application is now compromised to say the least. I've read many posts that state that it's virtually impossible to say what will happen. I fully understand this so I'm not asking for opinions on what people may think will happen but instead I was hoping that someone can give me concrete examples on what has happened to them with regard to illness and the medical. I'm sure after trawling through the Internet that a few shared experiences will help many people to better understand the possible consequences of their illness. I'll certainly try to do my bit by updating you on my father's progress. I would really appreciate some help here, it's a very worrying time for the whole family. TIA Alan.
