Many people struggle with medical conditions to pass the medical. It will come down to what the department assess what you will cost the health system over time. If in doubt you should speak to a specialist migration agent who specializes in cases involving medical issues such as George Lombard

Nope. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis, a cousin of RA and have been managing for 10+ years. It was barely mentioned at my medical and nothing ever came of it.

If its costly to manage now or ongoing is where there might be an issue

OH i would so love to know what came of people that have had to deal with exactly this condition and applying for a Partner  Visa  - did you use an agent? Were there any issues with the application and needing medication in Australia.  Any or all information will be taken on board. Thanks

If your partner has a condition requiring expensive medication, then you should consult George Lombard.   He has many years of experience with applicants with medical conditions.   He will tell you honestly if there is no chance of success.

We understand that, but after people have migrated successfully to Australia, they usually don't hang around these forums.  There is a small band of us who have stayed because we enjoy helping prospective migrants, but we are only a small band.    If no one with personal experience has posted a reply yet, it's likely there isn't anyone on these forums who has experience with your husband's condition.  

As we said, it's highly likely that George Lombard will have dealt with clients similar to your husband.   I know an agent costs money, but compared to the overall cost of migrating, it's a drop in the bucket and if one of you has a serious medical condition, you won't stand a chance without one.

One of the problems with looking at the results of other people's medicals isthat everyone's medical condition is unique. 

I have RA, passed the medical with no issues but it was years ago and at the time I wasn't on any medication. I would not like to say that anyone else would do the same because I don't know the ins and outs of their RA - it can be so mild or so severe that it really is an individual decision.

My daughter is an Australian citizen with RA, and her medication costs a small fortune, to the extent she has to get special approval for her prescriptions.  A lady I know got her visa even though she has RA as hers is a different type of RA and her medication was different.  I think it likely that the type of medication you are on will form part of the assessment, not so much the condition itself.

Heading to Wollert "The place where possums are found", Victoria (eventually)

"Eventually" has become a reality - at long last the house is sold, the car is spoken for, the Movecube is coming on 19th September and I'll be heading Down Under on 21st via Royal Brunei.  Arrive in Mebourne 3.30 a.m. their time on Monday.  😎
