I'm disabled, on wheelchair, I would like to ask 2 questions, one about visiting a country, another about immigrating. Is it okay or would they be closed as off topic?

It's about requirements and whether disabled get rejected and stuff like that.

  • I asked the same question on meta.expatriates.se, waiting for answers, checking the scope of both sites.

    Did you see where someone was refused because they used a mobility aide?

  • @GayotFow yes many countries don't want disabled immigrants including the US because they dont want to pay for health services, although i won't cost them anything, i don't think people like me are accepted

    Two questions then. Visiting is ok in travel; migration goes in expats.

  • If your question about visiting is specific there is no reason why it does not belong here.

  • Does this question need to have a formal answer?

    I believe it deserves one, and yours sounds like the right one. Commented Jul 13, 2015 at 19:40

1 Answer 1


A question about visiting a country seems very much on topic here (though with more details it might be that some aspect falls foul of what is off topic here).

A question about immigrating is very likely off topic here, though may well not be (subject to the usual provisos) at Expatriates.

Disability or no might make a difference to the answers but should make absolutely no difference to on/off topic or where to ask, provided it is a subsidiary consideration to Travel or immigration.

However the above would seem all irrelevant as you don't appear to have asked either question on either site.
