Hi guys, my student visa application was sent on 8th of October, I received an email today from my INZ in Bangkok through my immigration consultant that an initial assessment of my application had been completed that my health result would be sent to Health Assessment Team in Wellington for further review due to abnormalities in my report and that could that about 6 weeks to receive a response. Can anyone advice me the implication of this on my application? I was not informed if my application has been assigned to a Case Officer, please advice me on this. Thanks.
Don't worry about this step taken by Immi. If they found some abnormalities then they will definitely check further on your reports. If only your health reports is forwarded to Wellington then you need to wait a little. Once they approve your application on grounds of your health report, you will receive you passport back and all the documents will be sent to IPB in wellington for further processing. Please note that after all these steps your application will be placed in managed queue for allotment of case officer in wellington. Once it has been allotted you will receive email from your case officer. They may ask you for further documents or additional information form. I am not sure but if something is wrong with your medical reports then they may ask you to show evidence of medical cover/insurance or proper funds for your health cover. Rest is completely fine, until and unless your health problem doesn't comes in serious diseases which may affect their own citizens.
