Best disease and visa

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I’m after some advice if anyone can help. I am currently starting my 189 skilled visa applications and will be bringing my family to Australia with me. My husband has an eye condition called best disease. Would this effect him coming over? Wondering if anyone knows of this eye disease and has any info on it as wouldn’t want to pay for visa for him to be declined on this basis.

thanks in advance

Health issues are assessed on the likely cost to the Australian tax payer over a number of years in the future.

As a rule of thumb, my advice is always p, if there is a health complication to seek advice from a proffessional registered migration agent. George Lombard is one well known for specialising in visas with health complications

My husband has glaucoma (I realise it’s a different eye condition so may differ for you) and has had two operations on his eyes in the last six years. Because he doesn’t currently use medication for this condition it had no impact on the health assessment we had done last month.
