You must provide Medical Reports and X-rays
To prove that you are of acceptable health, you may have to submit a medical report a chest x-ray certificate with your visa application.
Your Licensed Immigration Adviser will let you know if you and your family will be required to submit medicals. This will depend on the type of visa you wish to obtain.
You need to see a Panel Doctor
Only doctors and radiologists approved by Immigration New Zealand, so called Panel Physicians, can certify your standard of health.
There are 639 approved doctors worldwide:
Please note that medicals must be less than 3 months old at the time of your visa submission. After that they will not be accepted by Immigration New Zealand.
Our advice: Medicals are expensive. Talk to our Licensed Immigration Adviser about the right timing for obtaining your medicals. They will know when you will be able to fulfil all other visa eligibility requirements and when the time is right to submit your visa application.
