Hi,

My husband has applied for ENS 186 Visa and we have provided all docs, CO is assigned and the CO sent the email that the visa is all ready t be granted but just awaiting my medical exam reports. I am the secondary applicant, my husband has cleared hs medicals, However, nov 2012 i was diagnosed with stage 2 lymphoma cancer, adn finished the chemo ad radiotherpay last month. The cancer is all gone.

Will they reject the visa as i have cancer? and if they do will my husband still get his Visa?

Thanks.

Yes quite possibly. You should normally wait several years post getting the all clear to apply because it can frequently return within a couple of years.

No your husband wont get his visa if you fail the medical.

thanks for the reply!

My husband's consultant told us that we can appeal if the visa is rejected. Is that something that has worked for anyone with cancer history?

Also, if we withdraw my application , will my husband still get his PR?

Thanks,
Ira

Health grounds are second only to security concerns in the rate of rejection for Australia visa applications. An applicant can have their application rejected if the cost of any potential treatment they may need exceeds AU$21,000 over five years.

Records show that 599 potential migrants were denied a visa on health grounds between 2010 and 2011, of these, almost 400 were denied due to the potential cost of treatment.

The AU$21,000 threshold is intended to determine whether an applicant will be a burden on Australian resources, or whether they could prevent an Australian citizen from receiving potentially lifesaving treatment or transplants.

Applicants whose medical conditions could prevent them from receiving a visa include those with HIV, cancer or a heart condition while there are also several cases of applicants with a mental illness and even epilepsy who have been denied a visa.

Hi Iravin,
I know this is an old thread but my fiancee has exactly your condition, what happened to your case? did you wait?
another question is what will happen if in medical check we say nothing about her condition?

Hi Iravin and Simonfo,


I exactly have the same problem now... So when I extend my student visa I was diagnosed by Lymphoma, but now I'm ready to apply my PR. currently I'm in remission for almost 5 months

Should I go to my oncologist to ask a letter mentioned that I'm on remission and give it to medical examiner when I do medical check up or I just submit my application first and wait...

Thank you so much in advance for replying my message.... Really hope that you guys can answer my question as I'm so worried.

Again, Thank you...

Hi, my best wishes on being in remission . Hope you are feeling well .
I had a letter from my oncologist stating the diagnosis, treatment and the outcome that I was in full remission . I had submitted that letter along with other treatment reports to the panel doctor during my medical exam . Hope this answers your query.
Do let me know if you have any more queries .
Wish you good luck .

Iravin,

Really thank you so so much.... Really appreciate you'd like to answer my queries and doubt. At least now I see there's a hope...

So you have submitted the letter from your oncologist directly when doing the medical exam, not waiting from medical center / immi to ask for further information...?

What kind of other treatment reports you submit? if you don't mind me asking is it PET scan?

Last question, do you use agent when lodge the PR?

Again thank you...

Yes, I submitted my PET Scan report that showed all clear , radiation plan and chemo plan and treatment . I did not wait for them to ask me any documents I submitted all those documents During my medical exam . They did not ask for any additional docs after that .
Yes , our visa was through an agent .

Need advise on my scenario.

Hi Irvin / Simonfo,

I am in the similar situation and need your expertise on my case.

I am from India and got the invitation for 189 Visa from Australia last week and have to undergo Medicals.

Here is my story:

I worked in USA from 2010 until 2017 January. During my stay there, in 2013 May, I was diagnosed with Lymphoma and undergone chemo & Radiation. My entire treatement completed by September same year (2013). From that point, there are NO health issues and doing great as usual and continued working in USA until 2017 January and moved to India after visa expired.

Now, we are in 2017 October and want to know if I have to specify this history in the Visa form or need not do it ?

Can someone advice on this please.

Don’t even think of hiding this fact for a moment .
You may face serious consequences of such an action

You have to declare the same in all the forms and applications wherever you are asked for your medical history

Moreover, in my opinion, you should go through a Mara agent who specialises in medical cases, to get the best possible outcome

Cheers

Hi newbeinz, the reason why I am asking this is because of this one problem which I had in my past (more than 4 yrs back), they should not reject my case. Can you share your thoughts on this !

Whether they will reject or not, will depend on the advice given to them by the medical specialist in the department and BUPA

If you are completely cured, I see no reason why you should be refused.
However, as I said earlier, medically complicated applications are best dealt by specialised agencies

The final decision is yours

Cheers

hi - how is your wife?

my partner was also diagnosed stage II last year. She has completed all treatments and back to normal life. We are keen to start our application but still not sure how the cancer history will be viewed and best way to proceed.
We are living in Malaysia and living together for 15 months. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.
