It is obvious that any health issues may well affect any Visa application.
Regardless of what Visa type, if I had a health issue that prevented me obtaining a Visa then personally the Visa would be the least of my worries!
Once you have had a medical examination for initial entry into Australia again regardless of Visa type you may not be asked to have another anyway. Maybe someone who is going through the second stage of the Temp or Provisional process could confirm that?
Thank you to Baz and Daf for the web link which is very handy.
As a holder of a Provisional 475 Visa I have to apply for the Skilled – Regional (Residence) visa (subclass 887) once I have met the criteria.
The 887 visa is for those as stated on the web site which I have listed below:
"Skilled – Regional (Residence) visa (subclass 887) This visa is for you if you hold one of these visas"
All the above Visa options are Provisional and must be either State Sponsored or Family Sponsored.
- Skilled – Independent Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 495)
- Skilled – Designated Area – Sponsored (Provisional) visa (subclass 496)
- Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) visa (subclass 475)
- Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) visa (subclass 487)
As far as I can see this is the fundamental difference between TEMP and PROVISIONAL.
I can only speak for a 475 again here but the second stage Pathway to Permanency fee is included in the original application fee when you submitted the 475 application which again I believe not to be the case with a Temporary Visa.
Any corrections gratefully excepted.
