Default Working holiday - health requirements?

Hi all, me and my boyfriend have just paid for our working holiday visas (about 2 weeks ago) were leaving for Wellington 28th Dec. However are medicals have to be 3months in date so we can't do them until oct, however ive just had the very disturbing diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, im only 24.

Does anybody know if this will effect are Visa at all? Where going over on 23months working holiday and hoping to get job offers to we can then apply for work to residency (im a nurse). Any info would be grand thanks

Sorry to hear about the diagnosis I think that particular condition is a lot more common than many people realise.

I don't think that you would have a problem. On the WHV medical requirements they are checking to make sure that you aren't likely to place a burden on the NZ health system in the short term. So they are looking to see if you are pregnant or have TB or maybe require specialist medical support such as dialysis.

Hopefully, someone else here has personal knowledge to give you an absolute answer. Good luck in any case.
