Fibrotic streaks in the upper lobe may indicate old healed TB. Some times if the patient`s immunity is good and the infectiion is not overwhelming, TB may heal by itself leaving behind scar tissue. The Australian embassy should view your case in toto and you should not face any promlem as you are in good health and have no symptoms of disease.
