Hi my partner and i have decided we want to emigrate to NZ after Living there for a year on a working holiday visa. When I got back I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I have read that I am unlikely to be accepted before th 5 year remission period. I have also heard you can apply for medical waivers.

Are these something that are not given out very much? Are my chances pretty slim as im only 2 years through the remission period? Has anyone had a medical waiver for cancer?

What does the waiver go on also? I am young fit and healthy despite having cancer 2 years ago. I see no reason why it would return as have had a mastectomy, chemo, and radiotherapy and am on tamoxifen. My cancer is non genetic too.


Can anyone give me advice? What we be wasting our time and money on this?

Thanks Em
