Emigrating to Australia with Type I Diabetes

Hi

My husband, myself and our 2 kids are desperate to emigrate to Australia.
However as my husband has Type I diabetes we are unsure whether this would be a definite 'No' as far as getting a visa.
Has anyone got any advice or know of anyone with diabetes that has been successful in an application?
Would be grateful for any replies.

Good luck with the emmigration, I hope you are happy in Australia. Do keep using these message boards and if the treatment is any good, I think I'll join you.

Hi Jo,

We too are thinking of emigrating to Perth. As far as I have found out so far, the Diabetes is not a problem as long as its controlled. I think that they like your Hb1c to be 7 or under & no sugar in your urine when you have a medical. You have also to take into account the cost of Insulin as in australia it isn't free! I think you get needles free & reduced price testing stuff from the Australian Diabetes society.
Where abouts in Australia were you thinking of?
