    Default Child Medical Condition, Need Your Expert Advice!

    We received our ITA last month and already collating all required docs ready by end of July 2010. However, my main concern is my 3yrs old hyperactive boy suspected having 'autism' recently after under going specialist checkup though still under therapy for further monitoring. My other concern is once i declare this into my ITA will this affects our application? Even if i will not declare since just an early diagnosis will this affects any future plan for NZ citizenship application?

    Appreciate your smart feedbacks as this will help me decide whether to lodge our ITA or not.

    NZ is concerned that people entering the country long term should not be a burden on their overstretched health service in time and cost. I guess it would depend on the outcome of the checkups your son is having and what the long term prognosis is whether he would be considered as needing special care or expensive medication in the future.

    Some medical conditions deemed to impose significant costs and/or demands on New Zealand's health and/or education services by INZ can be found here.

    Medical conditions

    * HIV infection
    * Hepatitis B surface antigen positive, with abnormal liver function
    * Hepatitis C, RNA positive, with abnormal liver function
    * Malignancies of solid organs and haematopoietic tissue, including past history of, or currently under treatment

    Exceptions are:
    1. treated minor skin malignancies (not melanoma)
    2. malignancies where the interval since treatment is such that the probability of cure is > 90%, e.g.: early stage (I & IIA) breast cancer at 5 years; low risk prostate cancer at 5 years; early stage (Dukes A & B1) colorectal cancer at 5 years; childhood leukaemia at 5 years
    * Solid organ transplants, excluding corneal grafts more than 6 months old
    * Chronic renal failure or progressive renal disorders
    * Diseases or disorders such as osteoarthritis with a high probability of arthroplasty in the next four years
    * Central Nervous System disease, including motor neurone disease, complex partial seizures, poorly controlled epilepsy, prion disease, Alzheimer's and other dementia, and including paraplegia and quadriplegia
    * Cardiac disease including ischaemic heart disease, cardiomyopathy or valve disease requiring surgical and/or other procedural intervention
    * Chronic obstructive respiratory disease with limited exercise tolerance and requiring oxygen
    * Genetic or congenital disorders: muscular dystrophies, cystic fibrosis, thalassaemia major, sickle cell anaemia if more than one sickle crisis in 4 years, severe haemophilia, and severe primary immunodeficiencies
    * Severe autoimmune disease, currently being treated with immuno-suppressants other than prednisone
    * In a person up to the age of 21 years, a severe (71-90 decibels) hearing loss or profound bilateral sensori-neural hearing loss
    * In a person up to the age of 21 years, a severe vision impairment with visual acuity of 6/36 or beyond after best possible correction, or a loss restricting the field of vision to 15-20 degrees
    * In a person up to the age of 21 years, a severe physical disability, where they are unable to stand and walk without support, and cannot independently dress, eat, hold a cup, or maintain their stability when sitting.
