Medical Test For Australia
Today we will share with you the latest updates about medical requirements streamlined by the department of home affairs.
The Government of Australia is streamlining the necessities for temporary visa applicants.
Medical examinations and chest x-rays are not required based on their nationality, earlier residence, or intended duration of their stay to meet the health requirements.
However, temporary visa applicants would still be required to conduct related medical examinations or chest x-rays based on the following conditions:
- If the applicant has applied for any sort of medical treatment, provisional visa, or temporary protection
- Awaiting to sustain medical costs or required medical treatments
- Planning to work as or pursue the degree of doctor, dentist, paramedic, or nurse
- Will be admitted to a hospital, aged or disability care facility center if they are having a high risk of tuberculosis
- If the applicant is pregnant and planning to have the baby in Australia
- Are over 75 years of age and applying for a visitor visa
- Have a past history of household contact with tuberculosis
- Or have been asked by the department to do so
It is required for the applicant to fill out all the questions in their form honestly. In case of false declarations, the department of home affairs will have full rights to cancel the applicant’s visa.
These are the temporary terms and conditions applied currently to all newly made applications and eligible temporary visa applications with the department of Home Affairs in Australia. However, they will be examined by the Government of Australia in early 2023.
