Found Tuberculosis (TB) in medical check

Case officer has been assigned and asked for medical check up. After finishing the X-ray test, the X-ray operator look at it and told me that I have TB. I am waiting for the final report from a doctor.

What will happen to the immigration process if I really have TB? Please suggest!

I have the same problem...

How is your case so far? Mine was smear negative but 1 culture (out of 3) is positive.

Did they let you go through the treatment?

I have been detected with TB positive. I am going through the treatment in a hospital. Immigration ask me to go through culture test. They asked me to do a second culture. It takes another 8 weeks for the result of the culture so I am still waiting.

But I found important note about Tuberculosis in below link. Have alook.

> Tuberculosis (TB) People 11 years of age or over applying for a permanent visa must have an x-ray as part of their medical. Those under 11 years of age may be required to have an x-ray if there are indications they have TB or have a history of contact with a person with TB. The purpose of the x-ray is to determine whether there is any evidence (either active or a history) of TB. Only TB is mentioned in migration legislation as precluding the issue of a visa, but opportunity is given to enable an applicant to undergo treatment in most cases. Where x-rays show possible evidence of TB you will be asked to undergo more specific tests to establish whether or not active TB is present. If you are found to have active or untreated TB, you will be asked to undergo a course of treatment. Following this, you will be asked to take further tests to confirm that the disease has been successfully treated. If your TB has been successfully treated, or your x-ray shows evidence of previous but now non-active TB, you will be asked to sign an undertaking at the time of visa grant. This will not adversely affect the outcome of the visa application. By signing the undertaking, you agree to contact the Health Undertaking Service on a free call number on arrival in Australia. You also agree to report for follow-up monitoring to a state or territory health authority, as directed by the Health Undertaking Service. Your visa is not at risk, once in Australia, no matter what status of tuberculosis is diagnosed as a result of the monitoring.

I know, I saw this before, but my agent told me it depends on the severity and the case officer. I'm only hoping they allow me to go through with the treatment before deciding on my case.

I am also on-going treatment. They asked you for 2nd culture? Is it because you have gone through the 6months treatment?

Wish you best of luck! Do keep us updated.

Does anybody know how long it takes for checkup for TB in Hospital?

Does anybody know how long it takes for TB checkup in Hospital?
I haven't made decision when I will go Australia permanently because I have a good job here now. Since I have to make 1st entry to Australia by this September, I am planning to go there for a week. DIAC told me that I have to go to designated hospital in Australia for check up. I am concern if it will take longer than a week or so.
Anybody know? Wanderer used to answer many of my previous questions? Are you still around?

Appreciate if anybody can help me answer this. Thanks.

I have also completed treatment successfully and got my visa. You need not attend the health centre on your first entry. You only need to do that if you are staying permanently there. Once you give them a call, they will send the file to the designated clinic for your check up. So if you are there for only a few days, then it may not be in time.
