Hi there

 

Check out the DIMIA website they have a comprehensive list of prohibited conditions, it mainly comes down to how much the treatment will cost the Government.

 

Hope this helps

Hi any one/every one, New to the game, just been offered an employer sponsored job in Adelaide and just about to start the visa/medical process as soon as we receive our 'label' from the employer. Hopefully going over on an RSMS visa but wife a little concerned about the medical. We are no slim Jim's but I don't think obese however, my wife does have high blood pressure (under full control) does anyone know if this would be a major probelm with regards to medicals?

 

I have tried looking at the DIMIA site but as all things OZ can't find the right information. Can anyone point us in the right direction?

WE must be very dim because we have been on the DIMIA site several times now and gone through the treads thers, followed all the documentation, put in a search and we still cannot come up with this 'comprehensive list of medical conditions'. Can anyone direct two simple creatures in the right direction please?

Hi swampo

sorry I cant direct you to the DIMIA form on medical conditions, but if you are worried about weight and blood pressure, try using this forums search engine and enter" weight and blood pressure" you will find reams of posts, as i think it is one of the most common threads, and they say and worry about the same thing.

 

happy searching

Thanks Kim, have tried that but nothing specific coming up. Just starting a keep fit campaign, walking, starving, you know what I mean!! Lets hope that will do the trick.

Morning Swampo!

As a fully paid up member of the "not-a-slim-jim society", I can only help by relating my own experience to date!

 

I am officially obese, (but look stunning in a parachute! :D ) and during my meds my blood presure decided to play silly Bu***ers it ranged from 143/103 , 156/104/, 141/104 during the course of an hour! So what the lovely Doc said to me was that I had to go to my own GP practice and over the course of a week I had to get three readings that were on or under the 140/90 mark. If this didn't happen I would have to have a full cardiac assessment by a consultant.

 

After they managed to peel the paper bag off my mouth, because by this time I was hyperventilating (probably due to lack of Holy Water (aka chardonnay), :swoon: the doc explained to me that all they are interested in is that any existing condition is under control and not going to mean that you are a drain on medical resources in OZ. He also said that 95% of folks with existing conditions are given the visas.

 

If your medical condition is under control then I really don't think you need to worry , all you will be asked to do is to get a consultant report which states exactly that.

 

Thinking about it rationally, the lovely people in OZ aren't trying to create some kind os super race of immigrants with nothing wrong with them, they are just trying to make sure that Assie tax payers aren't fleeced ( which is what this country should do!!!!!:arghh: )

OOps, found myself in my pulpit then....how did I get there....Odd????

 

Please don't worry. We are all cheering for you.

Hi VoD,

 

Thanks for the cheery words, we have been looking at your comments on other threads and having a good laugh as well - thanks. That is reassuring news about the blood pressure, I am sure that I will be OK. It's just one hurdle after another isn't it. Need to be fit for all the hoops you have to jump through!!

 

I do understand the ethos behind it all and I have only just climbed off my own soap box about the situation here in the UK, that's one reason we want to get out while we can.

 

Hope you make the Christmas 2007 deadline, we still have a long way to go, possibly September 2008 if all goes well. We are going over on a sponsored employment visa to SA (we hope). will keep you all posted about the progress - or lack of it!!

Hi Swampo

 

One day we will all be sitting on a beach in SA, sipping on chilled Holy water having a bl**dy good laugh about all this! ( Whilst swatting huge flies and lazily watching innocent surfers being mauled by the odd Great White) Great times ahead eh?!!!

That is a date my girl. I hear the Barossa Valley produces some fine examples and we intend to sample them all. We are waiting for our visa label from Kev's employer so can't really do anything more until that arrives. Why this has to be so long winded is beyond me.

I think its a bit like sex

 

The anticipation and hoops you have to jump through make the final event even more satisfying.....

 

Not that I would know....its just what my congregation have told me... :Randy-git:
