I have applied for subclass 500 higher education student visa with my spouse and 2 kids as my dependents. However one of my child have received the refusal as she has ASD while the rest of us have been granted. Please advise on how do I get my child to be granted a visa ( Long term). Otherwise, we will have to cancel our plans to Aussie..

Rose, I am very sorry to hear your news.  When I read about decisions like this, it saddens me as an Australian that we are singling kids out like this.

You may have a couple of options, but regardless, I feel you should be speaking to a qualified MARA Agent, with experience in cases such as yours;

  1. You can appeal over the severity of the medical assessment, this usually requires the assistance of an agent/lawyer, and recognised medical specialists for the child's condition. The objective here is to convince IMMI that the child's condition is not that serious.  I have seen this path work successfully a lot with ASD kids, as ASD covers a very broad spectrum of severity. Not all medical decisions can be appealed, but, as far as I have seen, ASD is generally eligible for appeal.
  2. Depending on the medical reasons for rejection, you may be eligible to apply for a Health Waiver (PIC 4005/4007), again you will probably need an agents/specialists help with this.

Please consider my advice about seeking out the assistance of a qualified specialist in this area.
