Hi jim3205,

This is what is written on Fact Sheet 22

HIV/AIDS
Permanent visa applicants aged 15 years or older must take an HIV/AIDS test. Permanent applicants less than 15 years old must also take this test if being adopted or there is a history of blood transfusions or other clinical indications.

Temporary visa applicants who intend to work as, or study to become, a doctor, nurse, dentist or paramedic in Australia are required to take an
HIV/AIDS test.

If the applicant is found to be HIV positive, a decision on whether the applicant meets the health requirement will be made on the same grounds as with any other pre-existing medical condition. The main factor to be taken into account is the cost of the condition to the Australian community for health care and community services. Standard pre and post-test counselling must be provided by the doctor who examined the applicant.


Hope this information is useful to you.

Hi Jim,

It's likely your partner's medical was referred, but that usually takes several months more at most - so 16 months is very unusual. Is your partner from a high-risk country? It's far more likely that external security checks are holding things up if so.

Hi Jim -

You may want to check out this very useful guide:

http://halc.org.au/wp-content/upload...tion-guide.pdf

HALC is an organisation that provides legal and migration assistance to people with HIV and others, and this guide is incredibly informative re: the process and options for people that are HIV+.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Jim -

Suggest you read the PDF from HALC in the link above to get started - that will help you get a handle on the process involved. Today, many people with HIV are able to get permanent visas for Australia - it all depends on your unique situation, the trajectory of the condition with you, etc. No need to give up hope! If your lawyer is not familiar with health waivers, then he may not be much use to you in this situation as that is a likely challenge you will face in migrating to Australia. My suggestion: read the HALC guide carefully, and get some help - perhaps from HALC's migration agents on staff if you fit the profile for representation by them.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Jim, as Mark said, you need an agent familiar with the Health Waiver process if you don't have one already. George Lombard in Sydney is highly recommended for cases where a Health Waiver may be involved. If you Google him his website, GLC Migration, will come up and you can contact him.
