Hi there,

I would like to ask for someone with similar situation or a Licensed Immigration Adviser here. We submitted our Residency from work and about to submit the student visa renewal for my son. He is High Functioning Autistic and is in mainstream primary school. He also doesn’t have medical conditions and is doing well at school and doesn’t require Teacher Aide. The Ministry of Education also will release him from support this October.

My concern, there is a news recently in Stuff that a family was approved with Residency except their 10year old autistic child despite of being a high functioning and was also denied a
Student visa. It caused me panic somehow and I would like to ask if I can apply for a medical waiver instead? Thanks in advance!
