Preparing for Immigration Medical Examination for Visa Application


Anyone who wishes to permanently live, work or study in New Zealand needs to pass immigration medical Auckland. The Immigration Department provides an application form that contains a lot of questions about your present health and medical history. In order to fulfill all the immigration medical Auckland requirements, you will have to get examined by a panel physician. They will let you know if you are medically eligible to migrate.

Making your appointment

You must contact a panel physician to know when you can book your immigration medical Auckland appointment. When you book your appointment, do mention clearly that it is specifically for immigration medical Auckland so your appointment is confirmed by an approved panel physician.

What to bring to your appointment?

You will have to bring the following:

  • identity documents
  • if you use contact lens or glasses, please do bring them with you
  • a list of all the medication you are taking
  • any necessary medical reports or x-rays
  • if you are 17 years old or younger, bring a guardian or parent with you
  • if you are using an immigration advisor, bring the Immigration Advisor Details form with you

Planning your appointment if you are a woman

If you are a woman, make sure you are not having your immigration medical Auckland during your period (menstruation) as it can affect your urinalysis results. Wait until your periods finish before you come for a medical examination.

Medical examinations for children under 14

Depending on the visa type, all children including babies are supposed to have an immigration medical Auckland examination done. Children aged 10 and under do not have to undergo a chest x-ray. However, if the panel physician thinks it’s important, then they’ll have to go for it. Moreover, children aged 14 and under do not need to have a blood test done unless the panel physician thinks it is necessary.

What happens at a medical examination?

Immigration medical Auckland has three parts:

  • Physical examination and medical history
  • Blood and urine tests
  • Chest X-ray only if necessary

The panel physician will check your weight, height, mental condition, vision, and hearing. The physician will examine your heart and lungs, and feel your abdomen and other parts of the nervous system. Some parts may be checked by a health care assistant.

You will have to:

  • Remove some part of your clothing in order to get your physical examination done
  • During immigration medical Auckland, you will have to provide a urine sample
  • You will be informed if you need to get blood tests and chest X-ray done
  • When you visit the clinic for examination, you can tell them beforehand if you would like to have a copy of your immigration medical Auckland results
