I am trying to apply for an Australia partner visa for my partner who is a Thai citizen. We have been in de facto relationship for about 18 months. I am an Australian citizen who is willing to sponsor. We are currently living in Bangkok, Thailand.

My main concern is that my partner is a HIV positive who was diagnosed about 3 years ago and has been treated by doctor in Thailand with viral load undetected and in a good shape.

I am aware about the complication of this case as one of the requirement is that my partner has to pass the health check criteria. I am also aware that there is also health waiver available for this case.

As this is not the usual straight forward case, I am wondering if I could get an advice from those who have gone through this process with Australian Immigration or are familiar with this case. We are trying to apply it on our own but due to the nature of this case, would anyone also suggest that we should consult and apply through a migration agent?

Please kindly advise. Thank you :)

There are a number of steps to go through to meet the health waiver criteria. It boils down to listing out a compelling case based on compassionate grounds.

In particular, they’ll ask for details on: (a) care requirements; (b) links to Australia (eg, family, charity, sports etc); (c) residence history in Australia; (d) ability to mitigate costs (eg, income, assets, property, superannuation, private health insurance).

Note, your partner will automatically fail so needs to be prepared with a submission with supporting evidence as a request for health waiver submission requires a 28 day response once the Department gets in touch with you.

You should pull together supporting evidence supporting your submission, such as bank statements, superannuation records, proof of private health insurance, proof of income, proof of relationship, lease/rates notices (proof of residence), independent reports showing expected salary, doctors letter/report re health and ability to work, letters of support from community/family/friends, etc etc.

A case like yours undoubtedly requires the services of a specialist Registered Migration Agent, George Lombard has been recommended by a number of members of this group.
DO NOT, attempt to do the application without professional assistance.
