Has anyone been granted a tourist visa with a cancer diagnosis? Is extra documentation required, if so, what?
Diagnosis will have to be disclosed as part of the medical.
Has visited many times before on tourist visas. Treatment is quarterly injections and the treatment is stable. The treatment can be done overseas, ie. Does not have to be done here.
Happy to hear from people who have been successful in this situation.
Thanks.

Not many people do a medical on a tourist visa.

The exact answer might vary depending where you are from, which visa stream you are getting, how long the visa is for, and maybe other situations.

None of the people that I have had visit me on a tourist visa has needed a medical.

The medical (fitness to travel) examination that must be undertaken by SOME elderly visa applicants is not the same as the usual full medical and some visas cannot have a medical examination imposed as a criterion. May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who post on this forum for an assessment?

Thank you. I'm struggling to find a Migration agent who can fit me in in the next few weeks for a short consult!

My understanding is that being over 70, a medical is required for a tourist visa in all cases. He's certainly had one every other time.

Different eligibility criteria apply to each visa type. to Australia or remain in Australia to care for a family member who has a medical condition, such as cancer. The person with cancer must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen.
To meet the health requirement you must be free from any disease or condition that is: a significant healthcare and community service cost to the Australian community.

The challenge you will find is that you will need to demonstrate that you are carrying appropriate health insurance for your stay in Australia. BUT... I suspect that most insurers will not cover an serious pre-existing condition like cancer. I am no GP, but it will get technical and complex I suspect. Fundamentally, the granting of a Tourist Visa, is on the basis that the visitor will not overstay, or present a significant cost to the Australian Tax PAyer. Australian Hos[itals will never turn you away, but we try to minimise our risk by vetting high risk visitors prior. Speak to a qualified visa agent.
