Hepatitis B and immigration

Discussion in 'Health' started by merry, Sep 9, 2010.

  1. Hi,
    I have chronic Hepatitis B,but my doctor said to me"you do not need any treatment because you are in a good condition".But for safty I should take medical exam every 6 months.
    Do you know I can get visa from CIC?

    Please let me know,
  2. You may find your answer after reading this recent discussion:


    Good luck!
  3. hi!may i know if you have your visa now?i have the same case please let me know
  4. I just need more information about Hepatitis B... Hep B is specifically tested for certain occupations (but for most people
    its just HIV)
  5. My husband had the same case. What we did was we provided the DMP with my husband's lab results, abdominal xrays, and certification from his hepa consultant that his hepa B is "inactive" and non-communicable. I think it will depend on the SGPT/SGOT result of your lab, if its normal, hepa B carrier will pass the med test.

    Actually, CIC looked more on his previous TB history, though it was inactive. My baby and I had no issue eith health. But my husband was requested for a sputum test and before/after sputum test xray. This has caused us delay of 8 weeks for the sputum test result.

    We got our visa yesterday, apr 21. But, there was an attached medical surveillance form on his COPR probably because of the TB history.
  6. hi im new here and have the same case as well.. i'm applying for immigration to canada via provincial nominee. i would just like to ask to those hepa b carriers who passed their medical exams and got their visa, did you have to declare it to the background declaration? i'm on the process of filling up forms and i'm confused on how to answer questions. i hope for replies. thank you so much and god bless us all.
  7. hi!i had the same case.i pass my medical examination you dont have to worry about it.
  8. @crazy25. as per medical letter. you need to provide immunization record. did u declare when u did medical that u hve hepa b? what did the doctor said and cic said? did you provide any medical records? so it means that cic is not that strict.
  9. I'm infected by Hepatitis B, too and my doc. says it cannot be treated completely. 1 in every 5 people in my country is infected by this nasty virus.
  10. hello! I am from Philippines. I just would to ask about health problems. My brother is in toronto now as a skilled worker. His visa is Worker. He wanted to transfer from his present job to other but he is hepatitis b reactive, a healthy one. He is worried about it. He has hesitations to apply for a new job because there might be medical exams to be pass. Is canada very strict about it?
