Australia to simplify immigration rules on medical prerequisites
Australia plans to introduce new changes in medical conditions to allow migrants with disabilities and other medical issues. These changes are expected to put into practice from 1st July 2012. According to the changes, any foreigner with preexisting medical conditions can migrate to Australia.
As per designated adjustments to medical conditions, Australia will increase the cost threshold value to $35,000 as existing cost is $21,000 since various problems were encountered with existing threshold. With the proposed changes, Australian government can allow remote migrants to Australia suffering from any health problems.
Increase in cost threshold value represents health costs in Australia. Current medical rules are framed due to medical cost burden on Australian government. Presently, Australian government is not permitting foreigners if their cost of health treatment exceeds $21,000. Consequently, many applications of Australian visa have got rejected
Australian immigration department, DIAC (Department of Immigration and Citizenship) has decided to ease the immigration rules by altering medical requirements in terms of cost threshold increment.
