Mother in Law had dormant TB detected 13 years back


Today I had medical exam and my wife told medical services Doctor that he mother was diagnosed with dormant adernal TB 13 years back. Though my wife doesnt have any symptoms of TB and her x-ray also came out clear.

Can any one confirm if this can effect my Visa decision or my application will get rejected for Permanet Residency subclass 189.

Or can the decision be delayed or my wife would be asked to go for another TB test.

Please reply

If both of your Medical Examinations were clear then there are no medical grounds to refuse your visa. There is nothing in the regulations regarding family history of TB.

The main thing they are concerned about is that there is no active TB. I have had clients from Indonesia who have had TB in the past, but now cured for at least 7 years. It has not stopped them getting a visa.
