Medical exam question - possible TB
Sabs posted a topic in Working and Skilled VisasHi All, My wife got her medicals done on December 28th for our 189 skilled visa. We received Form 884: Opinion of Medical Officer which says that my wife's health assessments have been deferred "as I do not have sufficient information to determine whether or not they meet the health requirement". According to the report, her chest X-ray shows RLZ opacities. They've asked for further tests like smears and cultures of sputum and another chest X-ray after 3 months. This has really upset us as we were expecting a clear result. We're not sure what the next step should be. If further tests do show TB, does that mean a visa refusal? Any help will be appreciated!
X-ray for pregnant spouse, who holds an existing 457work permit
egrpiyush posted a topic in Visa ChatHi, I have a query regarding x-ray test for my pregnant wife. We had applied for visa class 189. We got a CO assigned. Before going for the x-ray test my wife tested positive on pregnancy. We are in Singapore but hold an Indian passport. Due to the test results we refrained from the x-ray test (also suggested by doctors). All other tests were done successfully. My wife already holds a class 457 Australian work permit valid for 4 years. She got all her medicals done for 457 few months back. Question is can the visa 457 x-ray test result be used for her 189 visa? She travels to Australia frequently on 457 visa based on her earlier medicals. Please help me in someone has already faced such a condition. Thank you!
Complications with medicals
boganbear posted a topic in Visa ChatHi folks, This is my first posting. I've applied for an interdependency visa as my partner is an Aussie already. All the paperwork has been sent off but the x ray for the medical showed up what I hope is a minor problem in that there is some scaring on my lung from a minor chest infection. The radiologist and panel doctor say not to worry. The case officer has said that the medical forms etc have been sent to Oz to be assessed there and is their standard procedure if the x rays are not perfect. Has this happened to anyone else? how long did they take to come back ?Was everything OK in the end? Reading between the lines, everything else is OK with the visa so it is just a case of getting the all clear on the medical Cheers Mark
