Default Medical question - depression

I have had bouts of depression in the past , as recently as last year. Will it go against my visa app.

It will be up to a medical officer to determine but I wouldnt have thought that would be likely to meet the definition of "excessive demand" unless you have been undergoing extensive counselling or had a period of hospitalisation. If you have just been taking medication and had the occassional visit to your doctor you probably wouldnt be inadmissible.

Thanks for your comments. I have never been hospitalised just some happy pills now and then, when life take its toll.

Thanks again
