How do I make an appointment for a visa health examination?

When calling, please have your name, date of birth, and contact details for each of the attendees. You also need to know the type of medical examination you need. The type of visa you need is determined by a number of factors, including nature of occupation, length of stay and partner status. For New Zealand, this will be either:

  1. General medical
  2. Limited medical

There is no simple way to determine which is appropriate for you so we advise you to contact your visa advisor or the Immigration New Zealand website to ascertain which type of medical you require.

What to bring to the examination:

  1. A valid passport – without this we are unable to proceed with the medical
  2. Consent form and eMedical questionnaire for online system (which you will have been sent after booking your examination)
  3. Medical history questionnaire (which you will have been sent after booking your examination)
  4. Any prescription glasses or contact lenses that you may wear
  5. Where you have a known medical condition, any existing specialist reports
  6. Previous chest X-rays (if applicable)
