Question Health Clearance for Bilateral Cochlear Implant Baby

Hello everyone,

I got 489 invitation last week. However, I am worried about my only son's Health Condition which might impact the Case Officer's Decision. I am sharing my case below:
"My only son is complete Deaf and has been bilaterally implanted with Cochlear at the age of 2.5 from New Delhi Apollo Hospital in 2016. Now my son turned to 5.5. His all rehabilitation works (like Mapping, Speech Therapy) has been completed. By the grace of Almighty Allah, he is now fully recovered. He can listen, speak, communicate and sociable. He is going to normal school and outstanding in his class."

So far I know, Australian Immigration will not grant VISA for the above case. As per Australian Migration Act 1958, Cochlear Implant has been seen as HIGH COST and hence they are denied from immigration.

However, since my case is a bit different. All the main cost has been incurred already by me. The only thing he needs is ongoing maintenance cost of the devices. So, under the circumstances,
1. will it be still a problem for my baby to get health clearance?
2. What’s the chances of getting health clearance for my baby under the circumstances stated above?
3. Do you know any successful case in this regard?

I had a child with 80 dBa bilateral sensorineural loss
She was an Australian citizen at birth, so there was no 'one fails, all fail' medical issue.

DoHA will let you undertake a pre-application medical examination, but will not tell you the result before you apply.

May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent for advice about your possible strategies?

From what you have posted, there is very possibly a way around the issue that is worth looking at in your case.

For applications that include an applicant with a health condition, I'd strongly recommend speaking with a registered migration agent to make sure you are presenting a strong application that deals with the medical condition. We have several good migration agents who post regularly on the forum, including Westly (above)

Thank you so much for your reply.

I have already contacted with a Registered MARA. Their replies are as follows:

"We don’t have similar cases in the past where the applicant has received bilateral Cochlear implant.
We have to wait for Medical Assessment result from the Australian government approved doctors. The doctor would give an opinion as to whether your daughter’s condition is likely to require any new implant in the future, how long the existing implants would last etc hence we could not give as to what is the percentage chances of success."

Please suggest which Agent could give me correct opinion in my case?

Since you are represented by a registered migration agent I cannot advise you.
If your agent contacts me, I shall share my knowledge of such cases.

You know there are some free migration information support desk whom I have asked my case. For example, ISCAH Migration, Aussizz Group etc. They provide free service. The quote that I have shared with you is the reply of one of those free advice...

Free advice often worth what you pay for it.

The health criteria are one of most complex and least understood areas of migration law, as the advice you have received demonstrates.

From what you have posted, to undertake a considered assessment of your case and advise you about your options would be a considerable task, for which I would charge you a consultation fee of $190, tax free.

If you want me to have a look at your case, please go to my website: pinoyau.com and use the contact form.
