Skilled migrant visa with hypopituitarism

Hi was wondering if anyone could offer any insight; My partner and I are planning a move to Aus in the next couple of years, however she has a condition called Hypopituitarism (Which means she doesn't have a whole pituitary gland in her brain and therefore requires hormone replacement therapy to stay alive). Her condition is well-managed with the medication she takes, however clearly there is a cost involved here. I just wondered if anyone had had a visa granted under similar circumstances?

Hi,

I strongly recommend you to speak with a Registered Migration Agent before you apply for your visa. In case she does not meet the health requirement due the costs involved, there are some visas that allow you to apply for a waiver.
Meeting the health requirement also depends on whether you are looking at applying for a Temporary visa or a Permanent one.

I.e. For temporary visas, the Medical Officer of the Commonwealth provides an opinion on the associated costs and divides it by the number of years of proposed stay. If the total costs do not exceed the policy threshold, the applicant meets the health requirement. If the applicant fails the requirement, the department will send out a letter and you should seek advice from a Registered Migration Agent/ Migration lawyer as to whether there is a Health Waiver available for the visa subclass you have applied for.

i.e. For Permanent Visas, the MOC calculates the associated costs over a period of time depending on the severity of the condition.
• For applicants over 75 years of age, the assessment is made over three years regardless of the severity of the condition.
• For applicants under 75 years of age and in the case of a temporary condition, the assessment is made over the next 5 years.
• For applicants under 75 years of age with an ongoing or chronic, then the assessment will be made over 10 years.

Good luck

Thank you for your comprehensive response! Do you have any idea what the cost limit over the 5 years would be? I'm just thinking if we can get a rough idea of how much her medication costs vs the cost limit it might give us an idea on whether it is worth applying at all. Many thanks

$49000. Do not try to manage this without taking professional advice.

Ah I had read that figure was over 10 years, not 5? No we will definitely use a professional, couldn't risk trying to do it ourselves
