A reputable MARA agent will be able to advise authoritatively regarding the docos required (e.g. from medical specialists).
Consider a hypothetical case: A single Citizen/PR
holder of Australia decided to marry someone from outside Australia and have a medical condition which will be a burden to Australian community(as per Migration Act), do you think DoHA can reject the partner visa? In my view, it should not be. Would appreciate if you CAN, kindly check with the mara agent whome you hired for your visa processing.
Again in my view, this is the reason, even when an applicant apply who have dependents but decided to not apply now for them(for unknown reasons) together with his application, but DoHA still insists medical is mandatory for them, as once his PR
is issued later he can change his mind and apply PR
