Question Anyone give me info on whether an aortic dissection affects visa application?

Hi All,

A friend is here on a 457 working visa, he submitted an application for PR but recently had cardithoracic surgery to repair an aortic dissection. no heart valve replacement. The long term implications are good post surgery, he was already on blood pressure medication. He is in a very well paid job, which is still secure.

It would ease a lot of anxiety if we knew how much of effect this will have. The DIMIA website only talks about active TB or obesity with related compications-he's not obese.

Thanks

If he needs a medical for his PR visa the panel Doctor will advise if there are any implications. There really isn't an easy answer for this mate cos only the Doctor will know. Generally a rule of thumb (but not an accurate assessment) is that any illness likely to have an ongoing cost the health system may be questionalble. Unfortunatly no one can give you an answer mate, he needs to wait for the outcome of his medical
