Please note, if you are Australian and we’ve asked you via the portal to see a dive medic for asthma, it is reasonably unlikely you will be able to get signed off for diving. Australia has an outright ban on asthmatics diving – at the very least you will need to perform a full lung function test to prove that you do not have asthma. This means it is likely you will be snorkeling on your expedition.
