What to Expect on the day
- The entire process is managed online on Immigration's eMedical system.
- There are 3 steps to complete for the Medical Visa process:
- Medical examination with the doctor (which may include a urine test at our office) also referred to as a 501.
- Chest X-ray at the Radiology Centre across the road (please contact them separately for an appointment) also referred to as a 502.
- Blood screening tests at the laboratory (which is not always mandatory for every patient and depends on the type of visa and age of the applicant).
- Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you are a large family, please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to complete the necessary administrative forms
- The order of the tests/exams is not important; you may go to the lab and/or X-ray centre before your appointment at our office if you prefer. However you must first come to Dr Salzman’s office to pick up the prescription for the laboratory tests and you will need your file number for the radiology center.
- You do not need to fast before laboratory tests.
- Please make sure you have your original passport at your appointment. (photos/photocopies are not accepted).
- Upon arrival at our office, there will be some forms to fill out as well as a declaration form to sign.
- We will take your portrait photo and upload it to the eMedical system.
- All results are entered into eMedical electronically; we do not send any hard-copy/paper documents.
- If you wish to have a copy of your results, please ask the X-ray Centre or the Laboratory while you are there.

Please note: The Medical Visa process is a voluntary administrative medical examination, therefore it is not covered by any social security coverage and is rarely covered by any medical insurance.
We will give you an official invoice stating what you have paid but we cannot give you a "feuille de soins".

Results and Follow Up
If you are asked for further information, it is because this information is required to complete your medical file. It is your responsibility to obtain this information and send it to us via email so that we can include it in your file and submit it to Immigration.
If you are waiting for an appointment with a specialist doctor, it is also your responsibility to keep Australian immigration informed as we do not have a direct line of communication with them.
You may contact Home Affairs using the contact information located on the Home Affairs Website.
If you wish to obtain a copy of your results, please ask the Xray Centre or the Laboratory while you are there.
