Cancer and Permanent Res application

Recommended Posts

forrie

I have had a juvenile astrocytoma (brain cancer) as a 14 year old - had operation and treatment back in 1994. I am now 39, on a 4 year temp skill visa 482 - working in Brisbane.

We (fam includes wife and 3 kids) want to apply for Permanent Residency in Queensland this year. 

 

Will the cancer counts against me in my PR application this year? I have no records or reports on the cancer or its treatment.

 

Despite the fact that it was 25 yrs ago, the insurcance companies also excludes cancer from my life&disability insurance. Hostplus asked for a report on the cancer but the dr in South Africa said he only keep records for 10 years.

If you mention the Cancer in the application they would most probably request more information. Not 100% sure, but you would possibly need to see a specialist to give them a report on you current condition. When it comes to medical history and PR each case is taken on its own merits, so one cannot really say it would count against you or not.

I am pretty sure you won't have any issues given that there are no current treatment etc. Just don't hide it - if you get caught you can lose the visa! It might cost you some money to prove that there is no current problem though.

FWIW we got PR with my husband having a congenital heart condition and a back injury, no problems or questions asked, we just needed to give reports from his doctors. We used an agent who specialises in medical applications (George Lombard) but as it turns out he didn't have to use his expertise on this at all.

Hello Forrie,

Having a history of cancer will not stop you obtaining a PR visa.  If you have not had an occurrence in over 5 years then this is normally sufficient for DHA.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Regards
