(Anonymous) #1

Hi ,
I got invitation for 189 But after getting the invite I have been diagnosed tuberculosis which is not in lungs .
My question is is it better to do medicals before lodging application or after .
I am on temporary residency.

In Australia but the treatment here is expensive so wanted to lodge my application and go to my home country for treatment.
Can you please suggest me should I do medicals before lodging application , if I do medicals in Australia can I take treatment in my home country or it’s better to wait for case officer to contact for medicals .

need help

It is you choice if you want to do medical now of wait for CO contact. If you wait for CO contact, you will easily add 60-90 days of wait for your PR grant.

In any case, you will have to declare that you have TB (Tuberculosis).

As per my information, TB will anyway take more than 6 months to cure. So, you have no option but to declare.
