Default Parents Category

Hi All,

I'm looking to sponsor my mother-in-law on the parents category, which I know has been suspended until further notice. We are about to submit an EOI, but are concerned with the health requirement. She has early onset of Parkinsons, which is controlled by medication. Her medication is funded under PHARMAC, but we don't know if her condition is going to prevent us from sponsoring her.

Has anyone one had any experience with sponsoring a parent with Parkinsons, or if anyone can provide some advice, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Parkinsons is on the list of health conditions not meeting the criteria of good health, so I would assume she would not be accepted.

If these medical conditions are evident (in most instances further reports from specialists are required to confirm this), then the applicant’s condition will be deemed to impose a significant cost and/or demand on the provision of New Zealand’s health services and therefore the individual will fail the requirement to demonstrate a satisfactory standard of health.

and as Parkinson is a progressive neurodegenerative condition the cost would only get more and more expensive.

Thanks for the information MrsFychan, I've just had a look at the list. Quite dissapointing.

Wouldn't we be able to apply for a medical waiver?

Possibly but the cost for care would probably exceed the limit and as it cannot be reversed and will only have more and more ongoing costs unfortunately I can't answer if it would be successful.

I concur with MrsF's thoughts.

You may wish to consider having a conversation with Lane Neave Immigration lawyers on this, just so you can be certain of the chances.
