hi everbody,

My wife received the long awaited email from immigration after 11 months and 20 odd days waiting

"has been evaluated by a Medical Officer of the Commonwealth (MOC) and has been assessed as not meeting the health requirement for the grant of Partner (Provisional) (class UF) Partner (Provisional) (subclass 309) visa"

"I consider that a hypothetical person with this disease or condition, at the same severity as the applicant, would be likely to require health care or community services during the period specified above.
These services would be likely to include:
Mental Health services
Pharmaceuticals"

My wife has Hep B, has no problem with the condition. she doesn't drink alcohol. She is in Viet Nam so eats organic veg all the time.

"we ask you for detailed information, particularly regarding any compassionate and compelling circumstances surrounding your case and whether there are circumstances which potentially mitigate the cost or prejudice of access involved"

We have a beautiful little girl together, she is 16 months now and only knows her father as a person on the ipad (skype).
We have done this by ourselves without help, we have passed all the other criteria asked for.

Sorry for my first post being long, feeling very desperate and sad. We have 28 days as of yesterday to reply to Imigration and change their minds on compassionate grounds.

Our daughter is the first reason, money and running 2 households, my wife's social status (being a single mother in VN is frowned on). there has to be a mental health issue seeing me on the ipad and her mother saying thats your daddy.

thanks for any help or advice this forum can give.

Dean and Van

You need to speak with migration agents George Lombard or Peter Bollard. They are apparently the best at dealing with health waivers.

Good-luck

thank you Mish, are they on this site or look them up in the phone book?

No they are not on this site. Just look them up on google and contact them. If anyone can get a health waiver then they can.
I agree with Mish.

Their websites are easy to find and both are fine gentlemen with a lot of expert knowledge in complicated cases.

Yes they are the 2 names for medical issues, I have only heard of one other name put forward.

I have also heard that the fees charged by (from memory) Peter Bollard are very reasonable.

Thank you for backing up Mish, i see you are a trusted immigration expert yourself on this site.

We would be crazy at this point to risk doing this by ourselves any further.

the law is complicated and a maze, after a few hours and venting and a beer or 3. Our family together is more important than anything.

Its time for the experts to step in.

TB is taken very serious in Australia. My father a citizen was refused entry when he had it. (he became a non resident). It took a few years but it took his life.

It like all medical issues are required to be addressed at the time of application. If you know about it use the best.

I am not sure if you did a typo or not, but the OP's wife has Hep B.

Australia takes Hep B very serious too - if your blood test shows Hep B in it you will get a phone call from the health department in your state.

Dear Dean!
Did immigration give you 28 days to comment on MOC's opinion if your wife's health condition has improved? Or they offer you straight to Health Waiver after MOC's opinion that your wife does not meet health requirement?
