Dependent Health checks Failed, Visa Subclass 175

I applied for Class VE, Subclass 175 Skilled - Independent in October 2009 along with my family that includes my wife, my 3 year old kid and my elder sister as a dependent (who is handicapped and confined to wheel chair)

My application lies in CSL. We all gave medicals on 5th Feb 2010 and recently got the reply on that. My Sister failed the medical requirements as she has congenital spina bifida and has mobility issues and GSM has given me another 28 days to provide suitable response, otherwise they will take the decision on the information they have. My sister has done schooling, college and University from the normal schools and takes good care of her self.

In the email I received from them it says
"In accordance with departmental policy, the applicant is hereby given the opportunity to provide additional information which will then be forwarded to the MOC for consideration and final decision. Please note that information of non-medical nature cannot be considered. "

With all the reasearch I have done, I concluded they don't grant permanent visas to disabled people at all. and they have a policy if one fails, all fail. But if this is the case why they have asked for additional documentation. And what kind of information can be attached e.g. recommendations from Doctors, School/College Principals? If some one has an answer to this please let me know. I am short of time.

Thanks
Bilal

I am not totally familiar with the medical process as part of the immigration process Bilal but essentially it is not so much that a person with any medical condition is automatically failed but Medical assessment reports get forwarded to Health Australia and a decision is made that is based on what the life time health treatment requirements may mean for Australia.

So though it may be that a lot of disabled people could be refused in that manner, every case is going to be given a right to provide additional information to support their case.

I suppose it is a way of saying the decision has not yet been made rather than a blank No in the first place and the only way that can be changed is by visiting a tribunal if there is a right to appeal.

As to what sort of information you could supply, it ought to certainly be a detailed report from your sister's doctors and testimony as to her lifestyle from those who know her, including education people.

Hi Bilal,

I'm sorry to hear that your visa was rejected, but you still have a chance to plead your case and offer more evidence that your sister's condition will not be a strain on the Austrlian public.

I have found this link to the Immigration Rights and Advice Centre. The last part is useful for you, giving you some tips about what kind of evidence you need to find in support of your application.

http://www.iarc.asn.au/publications/pdfs/health.pdf

You should also consider possibly talking to a Migration Agent or Immigratin Lawyer. There are some on this site, or go over to Migration Help - Powered by vBulletin This site is run by Migration Agents, and they also have a thread about health check issues, so they could give you some professional advice.

I hope this helps you out
