Can I still complete the medical examinations required for my visa application?
If you are in Australia, you must complete any required health checks with BUPA.
BUPA have temporarily changed the way bookings are made for a visa medical examination. For new bookings, you must complete the Request for Appointment form. BUPA will then contact you to make a booking, and no further action is required from you. Please note BUPA are prioritising appointments based on guidance from the Department of Home Affairs and will therefore contact you if your appointment has been deemed a priority type assessment. If you are not contacted in five business days, it means your assessment has not been prioritised. Your request will be noted and BUPA will contact you when an appointment is available.
If you are not in Australia, you must complete any required health checks with one of the Department’s approved panel clinics. You can search for the approved clinics closest to you here (as listed by country), and will need to contact them directly to find out if they are taking appointments.
You will be given additional time to complete your health check by the Department if you are experiencing delays in making an appointment.
