Default Medical of pregnant wife

Hi
One of my friends got e-mail from CO requesting Medical & PCC for him and his wife. During Medical his wife came to know that she is one month pregnant, and doctor refused to do X-ray for her (doctor said pregnant women can not be X-rayed at least for 3 months). He is confused and wants to clarify following points-

1) X-rays were to check TB. Is there any other option if one canít be X-rayed (due to pregnancy) to check TB for immigration Medical purpose.

2) Can husband alone proceed with his medicals and visa without his wife and will add wife later on, if yes then what are the documents required from wife or husband to tell diac she cant carry on with the process due to pregnacy.

Please provide any suggestion on this.

Thanks
Ram

Hey tell your friend to relax and dont do the medicals alone as it might affect the visa initial entry date.

Just send a letter to DIAC along with change in circumstances form with proofs like doctor's medical report of initial diagnosis of pregnancy and they would gladly accept it.

All the visas(including dependents) are issued all at one go and not separately. I would suggest send the notification to DIAC and let them know about it. Once the baby is born send in a new change in circumstances and add the baby's name to it along with the baby's birth certificate. That was what I had been advised by DIAC.
Once baby's passport is ready, he can send the baby's passport, PCC and medicals of yours as well as dependents together.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Roy

If the pregnancy is in last trimister - more than 6 months, the mother can go for medicals or one can also request for wiever to CO on Medicals of the pregnant lady.

The couple should take doctor's advise and certificate that the pregnant lady can go for X-ray.

Once the visa is given to couple, baby can be added to PR dependent later after birth.......please correct me if wrong and please provide the timeline for PR dependent visa for baby once born.

HI Ram

If at all the wife is taken off the application, you will have to apply for a fresh visa at later stage, its just a question of few months, i suggest waiting.

Anj,

Assuming it wont be a fresh visa application but only PR dependent visa, How much time does PR dependent visa take for baby?

Mother is already added and she will get PR along with husband..

Hi,

Do not stop the medicals and do include her in the application (much cheaper and easier that way).

Tell him to do everything himself and she'll do all those she can do.

All she needs to do is explain she can't be x-rayed because she is on the 1st trimestre of a pregnancy.
She'll need a letter from the doctor saying she is in fact pregnant.

It shouldn't be a problem. Pregnant women should not be x-ray and no way on the 1st trimestre as it is when the baby's body is forming the most.

I remember reading something regarding Visa and pregnancy and she will not definitely be the first time this happens. They'll be fine, ask them to contact immigration and confirm this.

Good luck.

cheers,
Busyte

Hi Ram,

I've read somewhere that your x-rays are waived during pregnancy, so don't worry. Also, if you are applying for migration and not a temp long term 457 visa, then you will likely wait well past when buba arrives.... Then you can add the baby to the application without slowing the process down.

Keep DIAC informed and you'll do just fine.

AA

Hi All,

I will need some help to understand this too.

I am from India, and presently in USA. My Wife is 9 weeks pregnant, and I am the primary applicant for 457.

Now since mine and My Wife’s Passport is issued from India, which according to Aus Immigration Team falls under High Risk Cat Country, a Chest X-ray is a must. They referred me to 1163i which states X-ray as mandate, and in our case we choose to delivery in Aus, special significance apply i.e. Hepitis B test.

I am in a twist, as the doctors here do not recommend X-ray on pregnant Lady. Please suggest if anyone has encountered such a situation and found an alternate solution. I talked to the case officer, who was not very clear on any alternate approach.

I was thinking, on a Visitor VISA for my Wife, but then even a Visitor VISA for a stay more than 3 months need X-ray for High Risk Countries (India Included).

Thanks in advance to put forward your comments.

Ramana
