Default My new born baby girl has a missing heart valve

Hi all,

my new born baby girl born last month has a missing heart valve. we recently got her added to the application, case officer assigned 7 days after baby birth ( 31st May 2011).

The baby has been operated already for the issue but the doctors say she will need another surgery once she is 4 -5 years old. We have already informed our CO about the 1st surgery.

I am concerned that DIAC might reject our application based on the baby's health condition.

can some one please share their experience & expert advise also needed from senior members.

Some details:
I am an electronics engineer on critical shortage list & my wife is a chartered accountant. Iam the primary applicant. My wife got pregnant after we lodged the application. Visa class 175 GSM.

Hi sivamahesh

Welcome to the forum.

Without knowing anything further about your son's developmental history it is not possible to give you a definitive answer.
Not all child developmental issues lead to a visa refusal - it all depends on the long-term prognosis and the financial cost (if any) that may be imposed on the Australian tax-payer.

You may need to think of engaging a migration agent who specialises in visa related health matters if you want to put your mind at ease. You should be able to get the names of such agents from either the Migration Institute of Australia or the Migration alliance .

Good luck.

I'm going to apply for a de facto partner visa soon, but my main concern is the medical.

I have a clinically isolated syndrome, which for those that don't know is a single neurological episode of demyelination. Multiple episodes means a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, but many people with CIS do not go on to develop MS. There is no medical treatment right now, no medication and only an annual neurologist appointment to review things. I'm perfectly able to do anything anyone else can do, so no problems being able to work.

All this being true, there's still a chance I could develop MS in the future, but there's no way of knowing.

I can get a supporting letter from my neurologist to go with my application, but I'm still really concerned I could be rejected. Does anyone have advice on this?

Thanks - Matt

Hi Matt

I have no experience at all with this condition so will not be able to offer any definitive advice. Obtaining a letter from your specialist which explains the condition and prognosis will be EXTREMELY important. The Australia panel doctor with whom you will undergo the medical examination may be open to giving you his/her thoughts on the matter. He/she will probably not be able to give you a definite answer either but they may have some knowledge and/or experience with other patients who have had the same condition and whether or not there were any problems in meeting the health criteria.

I am sorry I cannot be of more assistance. Good luck and remain positive!

Default Skill assessment clear-Need advice on Health Requirement Post PTCA/Stenting to LAD


I'm 36 years old & had suffered CAD (Acute Anterior Wall MI) in July 2010. This happened while playing soccer suddenly without any previous indications. I was nearing 32 years & active in sports etc but suddenly this happened one fine day.

Now ever since I have been maintaining healthy lifestyle & get my medical tests done regularly including TMT/Echocardiography which are normal always.
with Maximal Age-predicted Heart Rate around 95%

I have 3 dependents which includes my wife & 2 children aged 7 years & 2 years who would accompany me to Australia.

I recently applied for Skill Assessment under class 489 which has returned POSITIVE.

I have read about health requirements in Australia - The reasons pertaining to refusal of VISA seems more towards immediate need of medical attention. Is my understanding correct? I wish to understand my chances of getting a PR visa.

The consultants says that there shall not be an issue but I feel they have less understanding about same & want to be sure about my situation or is it that i'm way too worried about it- PLEASE HELP!!!

I am in a desperate position and requires some guidance from you guys.

I am planning to apply for Skilled independent ( Permanent -189) visa and I already have the skill assessment and IELTS cleared.
But just now i noticed the regulations regarding Health requirements for family members. My 11 months old son is just diagnosed wth Downs Syndrome as we consulted witha doctor due to delayed milestones. He appears normal and slowly catching up.
I am already in Australlia for Competency assessement and i have professional registration. I fear the application will be declined on the health grounds. I have spent already around AU $20,000 as part of registration and other related expenses hoping to migrate to Australia and is devastated to hear the news.

I wonder atleast I will be able to get residency so that I will be able to work for few years and make up the loss..

Also wonder there will be any possible visa options?

Looking forward to your advice.

Thank you

Please help

I have applied for a remaining relative visa and await the decision of DIAC.

The issue is I have diabete type 2, can my visa be refused on the ground of health requirement?

And if this happen what can I do?

Hi, I'm in need of medical migration advice and whether it is worth continuing with the amount it costs.
I have had a small melanoma removed nearly 3 years ago, no spread regular checks for a further 2 years, all good. Consultant happy.
My partner has old history of MH problems all under control and on meds. Also now has 3 year history of chronic back pain. She will be on Oxy for the rest of her life and now has a spinal cord stimulater. Basically an internal TENS machine which is self managed except if the settings need increasing or anything goes wrong, and every 4-8 years she needs the battery changing which involves Minor surgery under general anaesthetic.
We are unable to find any advice on our chances and can't believe we have to pay the 1000's to apply and then more for the medical if we never had a chance.
Any divine would be great.
