    Health assessment issue sharing

    Hi All, as a parent of a child with medical condition, I have been through tough time with all anxiety about our PR visa application. I read a lot of posting in this forum from those who had same experience, and would like to share our experience for reference to those who still need it. - if your child have medical condition and you want to apply PR visa, please obtain specialist assessment on the condition, in terms of history, diagnose, as well as treatment plan, especially cost estimate in Australia. - I got some advice from my agent to try to apply TR for my child first to see if any issue with the health assessment, though it is less strict than PR, it can reflect the attitude from department. So we applied 482 visa a few months ago, it was approved in 9 days after we submitted the specialist report together with health assessment. - Don't lose faith, go find any visa with health waiver if necessary. I didn't go through it, but I prepared for it, as I could have applied for 190 visa (got invite last April) or 186 DE, but there is no health waiver available under them. Search from google or talk to professional agents to find out which have. - lastly regarding health assessment status on immi account, I have been so confused: after we had physical exam, my child received referral, then MOC contacted me by email through BUPA centre to request specialist report on cognition and development plan. As I have Pediatrician specialist report already, I submitted to them on the same day when I received their email. Then in a couple of days, the health status changed to cleared no action required. I do not know whether CO would need any further report, so have been worried a lot what's next, as I seemed not to be able to provide any more report. Now I would think if its status is cleared, it would mean ok. Wish you all good luck.

    Medical Issue - Cerebral Palsy

    :v_SPIN: Hi, I have applied for General Skilled Migration to Australia (Sub class 175) last year. I was told to go for medical check with my other family members. I have only 1 kid who is 2 years and 6 months old and diagnosed with a condition called Cerebral Palsy. Medical report was sent and another assessment report for my kid was asked which was also sent to MOC. After 1 week i have received reply from case officer that my kid is not meeting health requirement. This opinion was given by the MOC who described her as a hypothetical person. The case officer as for additional information again and termed it as Natural Justice. I sent it again. Officer said health waiver is also not applicable for GSM visa. What should I do now if MOC again give same opinion? Can anybody advise me ASAP? Asad.

    PR for Cerebral palsy kid

    10-07-2018 Hi All, I am from India and planning to migrate Australia with PR / 489 Visa with my family. I want to migrate with my family i.e. me (42 yrs), my wife (42 yrs), my two kids (14 yrs and 9 yrs). I am from IT background and going to apply as a developer software / software programmer. My younger son (9 years) is suffering with cerebral palsy. He is physical disable. He can't walk, can't speak meaning full. He has mile stone delay and currently his physiotherapy is going on. My main question is that is he eligible for Visa / PR ? Is there any problem to get VISA ? What type of care should I take to get VISA. Is there any special condition or special process to get such VISA ? If anyone experienced person, please guide me. URGENT. Thanks in advance.
