PMV 300 dependent failed health requirement

Hi to all! I applied for PMV 300 visa and the MOC has found that my son does not meet the health requirement. My 13 year old son has intellectual disability and is taking medications to control his epileptic seizures. The MOC's opinion is that my son will likely cost AUD1.4M to the Australian Community. But we were given an opportunity to provide reasons for the waiver of the health requirement. Has anyone here experienced this? Any comment is very much appreciated.

Hi,

I am very sorry that you have to go through this and also annoyed with sgn051 for being so unhelpful.

First having a read on the DIAC site this is what I found:

Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 22. The Health Requirement
Some of the visa subclasses within the family and humanitarian migration schemes, as well as a limited number of onshore permanent skilled visas, have a waiver component. This allows the visa decision-maker to waive the health requirement if they are satisfied that granting a visa would not result in 'undue' health care or community services costs, or 'undue' prejudice to Australians' access to such services. Where a waiver is available, the decision-maker will take into account the applicant's personal circumstances, including their ability to mitigate potential costs and care requirements, and any compassionate and compelling circumstances.

So it seems you could be granted a waiver based on:
1. Your personal circumstaces
--- your ability to help pay for/lessen health care costs and costs of care
2. Compassionte and compelling circumstances
--- eg: not wanting to be separated from your son/not being able to leave him

Hi SarahM,

Thank you very much for your reply. I am in a dilemma now and very stressed with this. I am trying to research now and I think I might need a migration agent. Can you recommend a good migration agent on cases like these? Thank you

Unfortunately I don't know any migration agents, but I would definately go through the MARA site to find one.

Go here:
https://www.mara.gov.au/agent/ARSear...x?FolderID=394
Then next to "Business location" choose "country" and type in your country. It will give you a list of all the agents where you live and these are all registered so you should be able to trust them all.
Contact a few and get some prices and also if they are confident with your case. All the best of luck!

Hi,

My husband did not meet the health requirement too. When did you get the email? My husband got his about a week ago, we still haven't received the invite to apply for a health waiver. Have you received yours? My husband is not onshore though. How about you? I have done quite some search. Jen's discussions on the forum is very helpful. Please see some of her posts.

Cheers, Baby Bone.

Hi Baby Bone,

I received the email from the CO last Friday giving us 49 days to comment on the health waiver thingy. I applied offshore too. Is Jen her user name here? I'll try to look for it. One migration agent told me that it is extremely likely that our health waiver will be refused and we will have to go to MRT later on...

Hi,

Jen's username is Jejuniper.

So, you received the invite to the health waiver submission on the same day your were told you did not meet the health requirement? My husband received an email last week, saying,

" I regretfully inform you that you do not meet the health requirements. I have decided to proceed with a health waiver submission. You will receive another email from me with the invite and requesting additional information to support this health waiver submission."

My CO is very nice. However, we haven't received such an invite yet, so I'm worried. May be the email was lost of something, it happened to us before for another job email... :-(

Cheers, Baby Bone.

You may send your CO a follow-up email. My CO forgot to include the HOC costing and I just asked for a copy and she immediately emailed it to me.
