Dear All,

I would like to get you opinion on medical condition, particularly Hepa-B Surface Antigen (Reactive).

My officemate wanted to apply for New Zealand but it hinders his intention to apply for EOI when he learn that Hepa-B is included in the Medical Examination at St.Lukes Extension Clinic.

His medical condition is Hepa-B Active sya. What is the change for him to qualify to pass the rigid medical exam for Skilled Migrant Category?

Regards,

Achie

Hi Achie,

My hubby has Hepa B. He still has to take tests if reactive na. Please see the sealed medical certificate thread.

Dear Arlene,

I am interested in your husband's medical condition because like him, I have this medical condition also. And it also prevents me from applying for immigration to countries such as new zealand. I've done some research, and the informations i am getting is really confusing.

I would appreciate it very much if you could give me some feedback on your husband's application status. Please. I really want to pursue my dream to go to New Zealand.

Thanks a lot,

Pedro

Hi Pedro,

Actually I am the principal applicant and though i do not have hepa b, i also have elevated liver enzymes and we're currently undergoing more tests pa. super gastos. Anyway, we have already lodged the application, to follow na lang amg medical results. You can check the nzis website for health requirements. Worst case naman, you can be considered for a medical waiver. Kami, we are optimisitic naman na makakaalis kami. We just have to pray more.

Hi! When we had our medical exam, my hubby got a reactive result for Hepa B Surface Antigen. He was referred to a St. Luke's specialist and after some tests, it turned out that he is a Chronic Hepa B carrier but is inactive, meaning the virus is in him but it is not active so he doesn't transfer it to anyone, not even to me. He was given a certification and now, we have already submitted our ITA. The doctor just advised us that we monitor his condition so we get to know it early if it becomes active. Btw (this is what the doctor told us), hepa B is a virus that can be transmitted by blood, or by sexual intercourse. This is not like Hepa A where you get to have the disease just be using infected utensils like spoons or cups. Mind you, hepa B can also be transmitted by using infected nail cutters (if you bleed), infected manicure tools and/or anything that would cause your blood to be contaminated. You cannot tell whether a person is a hepa B carrier by just mereley looking at him. But the good news to everyone, our doctor told us, that even if you are an "active" hepa B carrier, you can still migrate to NZ provided you have your medical waiver, which i think will be provided by the doctor. Based on my understanding, you would have to be monitored closely and that you have to take medicines. I am writing this to give hope to those who are Active Hepa B carriers. There's still a lot of chance, just consult a specialist, or better yet, those specialist accredited by NZ. Good luck to everyone!!!

Hi CME,

Buti naman puwede ka parin mag-migrate dito sa NZ. I posted that question before I left the country. Kasi yung boss ko very interested to migrate to NZ and Canada kaso medyo hesitant siya kasi itong Hepa condition niya.

Hope to see you here in NZ soon!

Regards,

Achie
