Patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) can be denied a permanent visa because they fail to meet the health requirements set by the Department of Home Affairs. The provision of a ‘positive’ medical report in a migration case is very important, and can contribute to a favourable outcome for the patient.

This resource outlines how to write a positive medical report.

Policy changes in 2019 have improved the prospects for many chronic hepatitis B patients in not having permanent residence visa applications rejected because of these health requirements.
