Contributory Parent 143 refusal/invitation to comment

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We applied for a 143 Contributory Parent visa and have received a letter from immigration last week, detailing my Mother has not met the health requirements due to her chronic bronchiectisis and the cost this may incur on the Australian community services/health care system.

Specifying the applicant does not meet PIC 4005 (1) (c) (ii) (A) in schedule 4 to the Migration Regulations. Immigration have given us 28 days to comment. 

Her ongoing medication is of little cost, she’s sees her respiratory consultant once every 6/12 months and has been admitted to hospital in England only once in the last 10 years. 

Any advice? Any Immigration agent/lawyer recommendations  that have helped others form a response? 

Thanks in advance.

I'm so sorry to hear that.  

First question is, how do you know her ongoing medication is of little cost?   Have you checked how much the real cost of the medication is (which is far more than you pay on prescription either in the UK or in Australia)?  That's the cost they look at, because that's what the government has to pay the pharmaceutical company.   

The other issue is that the government doesn't just look at how much her treatment costs now, it looks at how much a typical bronchiectisis patient would cost.   

The best migration agent to consult is George Lombard, he's well -known as the go-to man for medical conditions.
