You might be required to undergo health examinations as part of the visa application process. A report containing the results of these examinations will then be assessed to determine if you meet the health requirement.
The table below outlines health examinations that you and any members of your family unit (whether migrating or not) will generally be required to undertake for your provisional or permanent visa application.
|Aged under 2 years||Aged 2 or more but under 11 years||Aged 11 or more but under 15 years||Aged 15 or more years|
* If you have already undertaken your health examinations for a provisional visa which has already been granted, you are generally not required to undertake health examinations again at the permanent visa stage.
If you are applying for a temporary visa, the type of health examination you need to undergo will depend on a number of factors including:
|Country risk level #||You intend to stay in Australia for up to six months||You intend to stay in Australia for six months or more|
|Countries which do not generally require immigration health examinations – see below||No health examinations required unless special significance applies||No health examinations required unless special significance applies|
|Countries which do require immigration health examinations – see below||No health examinations required unless special significance applies||
Any special significance requirements must be met
# The relevant country is your country of citizenship as evidenced by the travel document that you are using to apply for your visa unless you have spent more than three consecutive months in a country which does require health examinations (see below).
If one or more of the special significance situations in the table below applies to you, you will also generally be required to undertake the listed additional health examinations, subject to age considerations.
|Special significance situations||Additional health examinations required|
|You are from a higher TB-risk country and likely to enter a health care or hospital environment.||Chest x-ray examination (if aged 11 or over) and a medical examination|
|You are pregnant and intend to have the baby in Australia||Hepatitis B test|
|You intend to work as (or study to be) a doctor, dentist, nurse or paramedic.||Chest x-ray and medical examinations
