Illness diagnosed after 309 visa granted

Recommended Posts


Please can anyone offer advice or point me in the right direction..............


I was granted a 309 Defacto Visa last October, it's temporary for 2 years and then reverts to a permanent visa. I have recently been diagnosed with M.S. and am worried about how this may affect my permanent residency.


Will I be asked about medical issues when my 2 year temporary visa is due to convert to a permanent visa?

Am I best to get private healthcover and cover the costs of treatment fully so I am not a drain on Medicare?


I am working full time and will continue to do so, meaning that the Government will still get their fair share of taxes from me!


I have settled really well in Australia and would hate to think that permanent residency could be denied for me due to this illness.
