    Default High BMI advise needed

    Hi

    Have sent off my visa application for a work visa for 2 years.

    Medical including cholestrol and fasting blood glucose ok. However, my form has gone to the medical advisor because of my BMI which is 40.

    Is this likely to cause my application to be declined...I have no other medical problems :(

    Any advise or other ppls experience would be great!

    Thanks

    Sam

    Have known them to give you the opportunity to get BMI down...they sometimes give you date by which you have to re-submit evidence that it is coming down.
    Good luck

    If the BMI is over 35, it often happens that extra tests are required (for things like diabetes etc.). Looking on the black side, if the worst happened and you were declined, you should still be able to apply for a medical waiver.

    Adding to what Bubbles says above, I think they give you 3 months to get the BMI down.
