PR with Type 1 Diabetes

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is a question already asked.....

My partner is Type 1 diabetic and I wanted to know if this is an issue when applying for a Permanent Resident visa?

Also, the medication is currently free on the NHS. Does anyone know how much this will cost in Oz? 

Lastly, has anyone experienced better overall care in the UK or Oz with this condition? 

Many thanks in advance. 

Annie

Would also be interested to know views on standard of care UK vs Aus.  Husband is Australian, we are in UK, he is 3 years since Type 2 diagnosis but now started injecting basal insulin, we are likely to move to NSW in 2019.  Very difficult for him getting consistent care here and navigating NHS with this very difficult, ever changing disease/condition, although obviously all treatment is free.

Hi Alicia, we haven’t applied for PR yet and are still in the UK. I’ve only found out that it doesn’t necessarily go against an application. I was worried the condition would be an automatic NO but it’s now. Are you going for PR skilled once your WHV ends or before? Do you or your partner have a job on the skilled list already?

Soffy999 - not convinced the care in the U.K. is amazing. Hoping Australia medical care is better x

Hi, Annie! We are here in Australia on WHV visas currently both separate ones. We are hoping to go for PR some time late next year. We are going to apply before the WHV visa runs out as you have to have another visa lodged to be able to stay in Australia whilst the visa is processing as it can take some time. Still pretty in the dark as to whether we will be successful the GP has said controlled diabetes TP1 shouldn’t affect visa but we have the first appointment with endocrinologist next week hoping they may know a little more from their experience. If not we will go to an agent for advice! I’m a registered nurse so I have a job on the skilled list and my partner will be the dependent. As for the health care so far very good out here- only been here three weeks and already set up with NDSS referral made by gp to the hospital for consultant appointment and that’s happening next week! - the lifestyle is so different here the diabetes has been even more well managed since arriving!
