  1. Hi all, My partner and I are now applying for a sub-class 190 visa following our Vic nomination. I have a pre-existing medical condition and I have done some research on this, and have gone to see a Consultant who has costed the care for my condition over the next 5 years (£5k over 5 years), which is less than the $35k 5 year limit DIBP put on conditions. Does anyone know of any further limitations on medical conditions? I have kidney disease, so may need a transplant at some point, but my condition is currently stable and the consultant I went to see confirmed that it would be a long time before I needed a transplant (if at all). Is there anything further I can provide to strengthen my case? Chris
  2. Hi everyone, I wonder if somebody could give me some advice. My fiance is Australian (he is currently in Australia) and I am living in the UK (UK citizen - born and bred). We want to apply for a prospective spouse visa so that I can go to live with him there. The problem is, I was diagnosed with and treated for stage 1 breast cancer last year. It all went well - caught early so just a lumpectomy and 3 weeks radiotherapy. I am fully recovered now and back at work as a teacher. Is this cancer issue likely to go against my visa application? Also, would people advise using a migration agent to help us process the application and how do we find out who the best ones are. Many thanks, Lorraine
  3. my wife is applying for 189 visa in accountancy professsion and her eoi got accepted recently.. i am very concerned whether she should upload her medical clearance and police clearance along with all other documents or should we wait for her CO to ask for her medical test.. her current doctor (not a panel physician) has done all her tests and all her reports are normal and she has inactive hepatitis b and she would have a normal life ahead. as far as i have read form 30 i have found that only XRAY and HIV tests are done for this visa and hep b and c tests are only done for people involved in medical profession, so this would be not a problem But we do not have any idea about whether to say yes or no in her form 80 about her hep condition . please can someone provide assistance in our case as she has worked really hard for ielts and arranging visa fees and we do not want to take any wrong step. :ssign14:
  4. My parents are immigrating to Australia and will need to go through the medical process. Does anyone know what checks are completed and/or what the immigration department look for specifically? Thanks
  5. Hi I was about to lodge my application for 189 skilled visa (I am currently working in Australia on a WHV) however noticed that you are able to complete health checks prior to lodging your application via 'my health declarations' I am awaiting a few things from the UK anyway such as additional birth certificate with both parents names on (I only have version without these details on) and my UK police check to come through therefore I am debating completing the medical while I await all of these documents and upload everything at time of lodging application. Has anyone any advice about whether it may be better to sort everything first or has anyone any experience of using my health declarations? Cheers

    Skilled 189 visa

    Hi All, I am 30 year old individual who has artificial aortic heart valve (surgery done in 2007) and little high cholesterol. I am have subclass 444 visa (temporary visa for Kiwis), I already have medicare card and a health insurance. I have 70 points but have a medical condition. Do you think immigration Australia will give me subclass 189 visa? Thanks, Sunny
  7. so...190 visa lodged - 65 points in total, all documents uploaded, just unsure whether I can apply for police clearances and medicals before I've been assigned a case officer or asked for them? I had to leave oz because I didn't get my IELTS results in time and my visa expired the day before I got my results - 17 hours later to be precise.
  8. I was wondering what is generally checked during the Medical assessment and what should an applicant be careful about? Also for Visa applicants not located in Australia, are we told to get the Medical tests done from a specific Lab/Hospital that are authorised? Thanks

    £900 for Medical Assessment

    I was quoted £900 yesterday to have myself, my wife and my 2 yr old daughter medically assessed for our 189 Visa. Does anyone know how much you'd typically pay in the UK or Germany, and would the Immi office accept an assessment outside your country of residence? We are in Switzerland. With thanks.
  10. I've lodged my visa application and am awaiting a CO. In the meantime I'm trying to frontload my application, however I was advised by the local medical assessment centre that the assessment is only valid for 6 months. Do most people wait for the assigned CO to request a Med first? Anyone had any problems with expired med assessments? Muchly obliged.
