Default Diabetes and Australia

Hi
I was looking into moving to Australia from the UK and i have diabetes. Would this affect me getting a visa? And do you have to pay for your prescriptions for insulin in Australia or do you get help with it?
Thanks in advance

I have no idea how it affects a visa.


A guy I worked with lost a leg and a foot to type 2.I think his health care was subsidised but that was about 6 yrs ago.


Try diabetes WA into google or NDSS diabetes Australia into the same.

If there are no other conditions resulting from the diabetes, that in itself is unlikely to prevent you getting a visa.
