Chronic Hepatitis B and Australian Visa

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Anyone can help for advise? My wife is applying for 190 visa for PR. She will include me on her application as a dependent spouse. However, I had been diagnosed to have chronic hepa B since 2010 (inactive healthy carrier) I have letter from specialist from overseas and been having yearly checks for my job as a seafarer as well. Knowing my condition my wife had her full vaccinations and has not bden infected with my condition. 

Is the chance for a visa refusal will be high for both of us?, since I will be included in her application? I am really scared and worried for my wife. 

We are still waiting for invitation tho

Where there is a medical complication with visas it is always wise to get a professional opinion from a specialist migration agent such as George Lombard

Hi @Hopeful0819 I agree with @VERYSTORMY you need a good Migration Agent on your case if you haven’t already got one. At one stage it didn’t use to be an instant denial but it seems it’s getting more common so you really do need someone here helping you. 

‘Also have a look at this document it will give your dr’s an idea on how to help https://ashm.blob.core.windows.net/ashmpublic/ashm_HepatitisB_and_immigration_08.pdf

If you haven’t been on any antiviral medication, etc and can get good supporting evidence then you may be lucky especially as you are not the main visa holder, BUT, I will be honest, I am not a Migration Agent and Migration regulations change all the time.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Hi,

@VERYSTORMY Thanks for the recommendation, do you know how much consultation fee George Lombard will cost?, I have a migration agent who is helping us, but not until my wife gets her invitation then we need to decide the next step. We are currently in Queensland.

Hi @The Pom Queen,

I appreciate your advise, I am not into any antiviral as of this time coz that was not advised by the specialist overseas. However, Im still bit worried that because my wife is on medical field, immigration might still consider our application together. 

Do you know anyone who has same case as mine? I am hoping for a good fight, its my wife dream for both of us to settle in Australia.

Nobody is going to have exactly the same conditions as you and you’ve received good advice to talk to one of the agents who specialise in medical conditions  - George Lombard, Peter Bollard or Richard Gregan are all names that are mentioned when medical issues arise. You need to talk to one of them and, yes, if you are knocked back because of your health, your wife’s application will also fail.

With medical issues it is a case of one fails all fail. So, if you are rejected, then your wife will be as well. Costs for agents vary, they should be able to provide an estimate when you contact them

By the way,

Me and my wife was not able to reach medical migration agent to help us. A registered migrant agent should still know how to assist applicants with chronic hep B carrier. 

Though they aren't that helpful to advise you. My wife get us to see a specialist who could confirm my health status, i did some blood test and ultrasound, then requested the specialist to provide as a letter indicating my status then we brought that letter during our medical health check for our visa, The MO received specialist letter and will attached it in out medical data. We also request to agent to attach the letter appropriately .
