Hi felali

Getting a permenant visa does not depend on where you come from ...Of course you could apply for PR and have the same chances as another from a low risk country...One thing different is your security check will take longer...It could take more than 10 months

That sounds so sad for me. 10 months would really break our hearts. Have you ever heard of someone who made it with my condition? I have no criminal records whatsoever.

My wife is Chinese and that is one of the lowest rated countries in Australia. We got the visa although we initially stuffed things up and applied for student visa instead of spouse visa.

Hi Dexter. Thanks for replying. I am in Africa. Was your visa application refused at 1st? Or was the Student visa granted? Thanks so much.

Hey,

My wife's student visa application was refused. There were two reasons for it. First - we did not submit bank account statement for the past period (2 years I believe?). Second - which is more of a theory - because if we are already married and we are apart, we should not apply for any other visa than spouse.

That all was back in 2007. Short time after student visa refusal we applied for spouse visa (with migration agent's help) and we got temporary visa granted after just 2 months (after a few bitter words from me to Immigration Office for giving me incorrect advice initially which was to apply for student visa).

In skilled migration there is no list of high and low risk countries. Points test is the same for everyone. In spouse visa there probably is something like that but I wouldn't really know what is considered high risk and what is not.

A past history of TB will not alone be a reason for a visa refusal.
HR countries are those that are not listed for the ETAs, Electronic Travel Authority and for all visas there is some discretion used in regard to more extensive security checks.
All visas do aside from security checks take many months and in some cases several years for processing and that is just a factor of how many people may be applying, annual limitations, prioritising and staffing issues.
Start with Department of Immigration & Citizenship and look at what visa you are considering and on most pages at RHS you will see of several links one called Client Service Charter that can give you some indication of times and reasons for variances which can be substantial.

Thank you Dexter. They refused my intial student visa application, and I was just worried. Wanderer, I shall read more on the sites you indicated and see how much more information I can get from the Web. My intial Question still lingers: has anyone with previous TB case, which occured for the past 5 yrs, ever gotten or been denied a partner visa? Thanks for all and looking foward to your reply.

TB history

Hello,
I am bit worried because of my previous TB history. My nationality is from high risk country but recently i am living in U.K. I got the PhD scholarship in Australia and now am going to apply for Visa. I had TB five years before when I was in my country but it was healed completely even I passed U.K health exam. Do you think that this medical history could be a obstacle for me in my visa application? Is anyone here with TB history and got the visa? Thank You

Have peace

Hi there szmworld. There is no problem if you have TB or not. It always comes down to you getting a visa, as long as you can prove you have been healed. I am already in Australia now, and seeking to follow up my health undertaking. Though it took me almost 2 years to get the visa. Have faith, and I hope this helps.
