Special medical requirements

In circumstances where a known health condition exists, an applicant may be requested to do further medical checks.

1. 75 years of age or over? 

Medical requirements for clients over 75 years of age

Under the Migration Regulations one of the requirements for a Visitor visa is a criterion relating to health. The criterion aims to protect Australia from public health risks, and preserve Australian health resources.

In order to meet this requirement you will be required to undertake medical examinations including an Aged Visitor Health Check. This check must be undertaken by a panel doctor.

If a medical and/or x-ray examination is required, we will notify you after your application is lodged with the Australian Embassy in Manila. You will then need to make arrangements to attend an approved immigration panel doctor.  See: Meeting the Health Requirement.

Impact on Processing times

The amount of time taken to finalise individual applications may vary significantly depending on processing requirements;

Whilst the medical requirement is being assessed it is requested that you provide all other documents requested by your case officer to this office. Your case officer will contact you with further advice as we receive it.

Overseas Travel Insurance

In recognition of the higher potential public health costs in respect of visitor visa applicants 75 years old or older, decision makers may consider requesting evidence of private health insurance or travel insurance covering the applicant’s entire proposed period of stay in Australia

Please note that the visa stay period granted will be strictly for the period for which insurance cover is provided

2. Seeking to stay in Australia for longer than 6 months?

Please ensure you undertake your health assessment as quickly as possible as this will impact the processing time of your visa. Delays in health assessment will cause delays to visa processing.

3. Entering a medical facility?

If you will enter a medical facility such as a hospital, you are required to undertake a medical check.
