Hepatitis B and Immigration/visa issues

Hi @tommy,

Welcome to the forum!

I think this depends on which country you are planning to work in. The country’s migration website should have more information on this.

i want work at australia mr thomas

I want get visa working holiday at australia mr thomas

We have had several members on the forum get even permanent residency even if they have hepatitis B. My expectation is that Hepatitis B would not prevent you from getting a working visa. Others on this website may share their experiences.

did you easily get work permit ? if i have negative pcr do u think that i might get it?

Hello, everyone, I am a newcomer with Hepatitis B (normal liver function, virus load is about 750 IU/ml). Thanks for building this forum and I find it really helps a lot.

I am planning to apply for German dual system ( Dual vocational training system), but I am worried if employers will shut me out because of Hepatitis B? Will there be problems with visa or applying for German permanent residence? I really want to move to Germany.

Hi @Forrest,

Welcome to the forum. As mentioned above, I have Hep B and worked in Germany with no problem with my work visa.

Hope this helps,
Thomas

Many thanks, Dr. Thomas Tu, could you tell me the process of medical examination? Once the doctor find a person with Hep B, will he/she tell the employer?

Thanks Thomas for your reply

Any Asian contourites for the visa

Hi Evans, how are you ? Hope you are doing well. I saw your experience about PR in Australia. I’m at the same situation, next week I’ve got the appointment for the Health examination and i feel a bit stressed and scared. Do you mind to share a little bit more about your experience, like your Viral load, ecc ecc.

Thanks in advance

Hi Thomas
Do you know any Asian country allow a work permit with Hep b condition

Dear @Kazma81,

I have no experience in going to Asian countries for work permits. The first place you should visit is the country’s government website. If not much information is there, I would try to contact Hepatitis organisations in that country for more detailed local information.

Hello @S.N , thank you for these words, I feel so relieved, I have been trying for long to find a reply but I am grateful that I have got it at last. My inquiry is you have advised that we should keep our health status confidential to employers, should I also keep our health status confidential from embassy people as the process to move to Germany started and soon I must present medicals for the visa application

How can I go about it because the doctor said that I don’t need treatment at the moment, I have know my status since I was 18 after our little brother donated blood and was told he has hep B that’s when the entire family was tested and it turns out that we children have but our parents are negative, up to now it perturbs us how it came about

I am looking forward to your reply, thank you Dr @ThomasTu for this platform
