How to do a medical

This video highlights the steps necessary to take a medical assessment for your visa to Australia.

You may be required to do a medical assessment before your visa is approved. This is very common for applicants applying for any permanent visa, or applicants applying for most temporary visas from Asia or Africa.

You will complete the e-medical questionnaire and obtain a HAP ID (this is located at the top right of your form).

After you have completed your questionnaire, you would then call or book online with your closest Immigration panel doctor for an appointment.

Unfortunately, you cannot attend any doctor in order to complete your medical. It must be organized through immigration. In order to find the closest immi doctor you can go to the immigration website:

In Australian capital cities there will usually be several panel doctors you can visit. In most large countries, there is also a large list of doctors that are acceptable.

What tests will you need to do:

Immigration can request anything, however, the most common test you might be required to undergo are:

  • 501 Medical Examination Required
  • 502 Chest X-ray Examination Required
  • 707 HIV test Required


Attending your Appointment: 

You will need to take a copy of your passport to the appointment and a copy of the e-medical form.

Please arrive about 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment.

What happens after the appointment?

After your appointment, the medical provider will automatically update The Department of Immigration on your medical report outcome. This is usually completed in a few days.

If there is any issue with the medical, immigration will contact you.

I hope that this information is clear, however, please feel free to get in contact if you have any other questions.
