    Post Medical Waiver

    Any information on this matter would be much appreciated. We are going through the medical issues at the moment after supplying INZ all the medical information required and more. We now know that the medical assessor will be recommending that our case gets rejected on the grounds of cost of treatment. Our son has been successfully treated for leukaemia on 2 occassion and a bone marrow transplant. He now receives medication which he has to take daily to help with side effects caused by the chemo and radiotherphy. This cost at the moment is 17,000PER year and will reduce to 5,000 per year in the next few years.

    We know that INZ only allow $24,000 over a period of 4 years hence the rejection from medical assessors. We are hoping that INZ will see what we have to offer NZ as my husband has a job offer under the skills shortage catagory. Our son will also qualify in December on his apprenticeship again under the skill shortage. Our son is very well and holds done a full-time job. So does anybody have any hope that they could offer our situation. We have read the information on medical waivers.
    We so wish for our dream to come true after visiting NZ on 4 occassions in the past 6 years.

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    Firstly, sorry to hear your son has been ill, but glad to hear he was successfully treated and is now well - I can sympathise with you as one of my sons had leukaemia, but is fortunately now a healthy 17 year old

    Anyway, with regards to your situation .... will you or your son be in a postion to pay for any medical costs yourself? In other words, how do you anticipate his ongoing medical costs will be paid? I know that INZ are quite strict about people coming to NZ and becoming a burden on the health system, but it does seem a pity for you when what your son requires is actually maintenance, rather than 'treatment'

    Have you got a case officer you can approach for advice?

    Default medical waiver

    We are more than happy to pay the cost. However, after speaking with our case worker she said that this is not possible. As people in the past have offered to do but their circumstance's change and then can't afford to continue.

    I know we are clutching at straws but we are really hoping the do consider us for a medical waiver.

    We are not getting any advice from INZ as the medical assessor has not said no yet even although we know he will. We have to wait for the process to take it place. All very frustating

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
