In case your qualifications are world friendly and you are keen on trying your luck in the international job market, you must make sure you are fit too: Physically, medically and above all emotionally.
For there are instances of people being rejected for jobs on the ground of being overweight, which is the most prominent factor in creating health issues quite early in life. Diabetes and heart ailments are termed as the lifestyle diseases.
The case of Chef Albert Butenhuis first hit the headlines in 2013 when his application for permanent residence was rejected by New Zealand on the basis of his being overweight. He weighs 130 Kg. He fought a battle with immigration authorities for three years and finally had returned to South Africa to avoid deportation. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
New Zealand cited the demands his obesity could place on it’s health services as the reason for the denial.
Similar concerns have prompted other countries too to take a more serious look at pre-migration medical tests. Although medical checkup prior to granting work or residential visas had always been the norm but earlier the focus had always been on the look out for contagious diseases.
But now the norm has changed, as this has been recognized that BMI (Body Mass Index) and it’s associated medical risks can put a strain on a country’s medical resources.
It’s been observed that although obesity can not be the only reason for refusal of a work visa, the risks are far higher if a person is over weight.
Countries like Australia, New Zealand and Canada require the empanelled medical practitioner to jot down the visa application’s BMI and also asks for the candidate’s height and weight.
