  1. Hi all So we need to take a letter with us to our medicals outlining my hubby's eye condition, prognosis etc. The issue is that since diagnosis he's always been under the care of an optometrist. Not an opthalmologist (eye specialist). Our optometrist has all the equipment including very latest technology, and has done all the necessary visual testing every year, for the past 14 years. He knows my hubby's history and progression of his condition inside out. But I'm not sure whether MOC will accept his opinion given that he's not an 'ophthalmologist'. We are at the moment trying to clarify with our Panel Drs in Manchester whether his opinion is enough, but has anyone any experiences personally? It's so frustrating. We could try and find a private ophthalmologist but they'll literally be looking at his latest tests and forming an opinion, it won't be anywhere near as informed as that of our optometrist. Any guidance much appreciated, Thanks all in advance for keeping me sane on this....

    Form 26 medical 2011

    Hi, Does anyone has a copy of form 26 (2011 or jan 2012 version) ? i forgot some of the questions and i need to remember what i was asked at that time. The current version is different. Going to apply for a visa extension. My answers must be consistent with the past answer. Thanx
  3. Hi, I'm in a very difficult position. I have an 820 partner visa and a couple of months ago I returned to the UK to get surgeries that I need (one reason was to spare Medicare the expense and to not jeopardize the visa) and am now trapped here on a waiting list unable to walk. I have received an email from DIAC allowing me 60 days to submit the documentation for my 801 visa but doing this from a position of being house-bound the UK is going to be very difficult if even possible. I have explained to DIAC my position but it seems as if they didn't understand or care. My partner in OZ has no printer, we live in a remote community, he is also ill and so on (we are in our 60s), so it's really up to me to organize this. I want to know what happens if I cannot get all the evidence to them within 60 days. Does anybody know or have experience of this? Alexandra

    Knock Knee or rickets in Australia

    Since coming to Australia I have noticed many times people aged in their 30-50s with bandy legs. After a bit of research it seems to be a medical condition called knock knee. I've seen 5 people with it this week, yet I've never seen it in the UK. Has anyone else noticed this?

    457 Granted..

    ...in six weeks...Hooray! And that with the Case Officer being on holiday for the last two weeks (Didn't tell anyone though so when emails from our Agent went unanswered mild panic set in!). We were very nervous as I have Ulcerative Colitis - a chronic condition that I thought might put a spanner in the works - something I've had for 10 years that flares up every now and again. But a letter written by my consultant I took along to my medical seemed to do the trick. I've only seen a couple of mentions about this condition on PIO but not heard of any outcome - hope this info helps someone in the same position in future. Sydney bound..!:jiggy:
