Statement from Home Affairs Department:

·    The Department does not comment on Individual cases.

·    Most visas require applicants to meet the migration health requirement set out in Australian migration law. The health requirement is not condition-specific and the assessment is undertaken individually for each applicant based on their condition and level of severity .

·    It is an objective assessment to determine whether the care of the individual during their stay in Australia would likely result in significant costs to the Australian community or prejudice the access of Australian citizens and permanent residents to services in short supply.

·    Information on the health requirement for visa applicants is at:https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/health

·    For certain visas, primary criteria for the grant of the visa requires that all members of a family unit satisfy certain requirements. If one of the members of a family unit does not satisfy these requirements, then the primary applicant will not meet the criteria for the grant of the visa.

·    This will ultimately mean that secondary applicants will not be able to be meet the requirements for the visa even if the primary applicant has met the requirements for the visa.
