Australia PR Medical Test – Adult, Child

Australia PR medical test is required for everyone applying for Australian PR using 189 / 190 visa.

  1. Medical Examination (Adult, Child) –
    Doctor will perform Urine test, height – weight, eyesight, ear by looking, throat check by looking.
  2. Chest X-ray Examination (Adult Only)
  3. HIV or AIDS test (Adult Only)
    Simple Blood-based test to detect HIV positive virus.
  4. TB test
    • Adult – If you answered YES to any TB questions.
    • Child – If age is 5-10 years

Girls and ladies should not be on their menstrual period on the day of medical test. A clear urine result is required to pass the medical exam.

Tuberculosis (TB) Detected

If you ever had TB and are now free of TB, you will still need to go through TB detection test. Your Australia PR application will not be denied if you every had or currently have TB.

A kid will need TB test too and will be given a TB detection injection.

Case officer will contact you to get more TB related tested done before they can approve your 189 or 190 PR.

Your PR application will not be approved until you have completely treated your TB and test reports show that you are free of this communicable disease.

Pregnancy – X Ray

Pregnant ladies will not be able to get the X-ray done at the time of medical examination. Australia DIBP will not grant PR until you get the X-ray report after your child birth.

It is recommended to generate HAP ID before your 189 or 190 invite and get X ray done if you are planning for pregnancy or are newly pregnant if it is safe.

Australia PR Medical report is valid for 12 months.

Hepatitis Test

Hepatitis B and C test may be required if you are pregnant or if you intend to work as a doctor, nurse or dentist in Australia.

Hep B check is mandatory for people with tattoos or body piercings.

Example:

Ladies with ear piercing will need Hepatitis B test.

AIDS / HIV Positive

Your Australia PR application may not be approved if you are found to have AIDS or HIV virus. The DIBP will take a decision based on the costs on the public health system.

Australia PR Medical Cost

Australia PR medical test cost in USA is USD $350 per adult. Child medical examination for Australian Immigration is USD $60. The cost in USA varies by medical center and may cost you more based on your location.

Australia PR Medical test cost in India is INR 6,000 for Adult and INR 4,000 for child.

Example:

Australia Medical Physical examination in Dallas, Texas costs USD $350 per adult but same test in Atlanta, GA costs USD $450 per person.

Is Medical Test in USA Covered by Insurance

Your USA Health Insurance does not cover Australia immigration medical test.

Insurance company claims that it is not a medical necessity and hence it should be paid out of your pocket. You cannot even run the medical test through your health insurance to get a better negotiated rate.

You have to pay for PR tests by cash, debit or Credit card directly to clinic.

An HSA Card cannot be used to pay for Australia immigration physical examination.

Health Savings Account is an account specifically meant for health requirement by necessity and cannot be used for permanent residency tests.

Australia PR Medical Processing Time

The Medical test process takes about an hour to take your blood for HIV examination, test eye sight, record weight and take urine samples.

The medical reports take 7-14 days to be uploaded to Australia Immiaccount in USA. The Authorized medical center uploaded reports are automatically connected to your HAP ID.

You cannot see the reports in your immiaccount. You will only see the message that reports have been uploaded.

People from India have reported that doctors do upload reports within 1 day of tests completion.

Get Australia Medical from India while living in USA?

You can get Australia Medical done from anywhere in world irrespective of your physical location. Many people who are residing in USA get them checked up while they are visiting India.

Example:

You are applying for Australia 189 PR from Singapore. You can get your medical test report from India while you were on leisure trip.

Australia PR Rejection – Medical Reasons

Chances of your Australia PR rejection are very high if you are suffering from any of these diseases.

DIBP denies permanent residency if the cost of treatment can be more than AUD $40,000 over the next 5 years.

You can apply for health waiver to help get your PR approval if you think that you medical condition will not be a cost burden on Australia Healthcare.

Australia PR Medical Questions

You can Generate HAP ID and get medical done even before getting invitation or submitting your final visa application. Each adult and kid will get a separate HAP ID.

You have to answer Yes or No to each question before generating HAP ID

  1. Have you ever got Tuberculosis (TB), treatment for tuberculosis?
  2. Any close household contact with Tuberculosis (TB)
  3. Prolonged medical treatment and/or repeated hospital admissions for any reason, including a major operation or psychiatric illness

    Hi,

    We have our PR medical tests for 189 visa coming up. My wife is the primary applicant.

    She had a neck fusion in 2011 and the doctors final report indicates 25% disability but no permanent disability. The prognosis is positive.

    Would this have an impact resulting in a denied visa?

    Thanks, Clint

    Hi @A_Frayed_Knot

    As mentioned on the article, it depends on what the total future cost of healthcare will be in Australia. I have given examples of cases in the article where the Australia immigration has denied PR based on the total cost.

    Please read.

    There is no way to find out the future cost of a particular disability as far as I know. Immigration officer’s may be using their own tools to find out the total cost.

    G’day Anil,

    Hope all are doing well.

    Apologies if this has been already answered in the threads, My partner is a Type 2 diabetics and it’s in control and recent check up with GP showed no issues, wanted to understand if there will be any red flag raised or cause for PR rejection on health check terms.

    Appreciate your response.

    Cheers, Sailaja.

    Hi,

    Around 3 years back, I was investigated for TB but never diagnosed with it since all the test were negative. Eventually, it was found that some ulcer was present in intestine which were giving similar kind of symptoms. Few weeks of medicines and I got well.

    My question is, I should tick no to the first question in health declaration right?


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 21 Jun, 19 at 3:35 pm

      If you were NOT diagnosed or treated for TB, then you should say No.


      • Amit Singh
        Amit Singh 21 Jun, 19 at 11:47 pm

        Hi Anil,

        I am worried because, doctors asked me to start medicines for the TB while we waited for the test results. Once, it was confirmed it was not TB, they changed my medication within two three weeks. Will this count as treatment of TB?

        I also have a visitor visa in which I said no to the question, if I ever had TB? which is true as per various reports. Also, there was no question in visitor form for the treatment of of TB. No medical were done for visitor visa. Now I am planning to apply for 189/190 pr.

        Please advise.


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 22 Jun, 19 at 5:22 am

          As per what you are saying, i think that you were never diagnosed with TB.

    Please update.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 10 Jun, 19 at 11:57 pm

      The PR process is affected with any medical condition if the visa officer finds the total cost of future healthcare for you to be high.
      I cannot say what they will do in your case.


  8. Pallavi
    Pallavi 2 Jun, 19 at 2:23 pm

    Hi Anil. I’m applying for Australia PR in category 189. I have a kidney problem, which can easily show up in the urine test as my protein is very high 1.5-2 g. It’s just a condition, an autoimmune disorder, not chronic, and my kidneys are functioning perfectly normal so no need of dialysis or anything at least in the next 10 years.
    So here’s my concern, i know high protein will show up in my urine report , are there any chances that my case can get rejected or if they ask for Health waiver what do they look for in it . Do you know any such previous cases where they have waived off medical conditions.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 2 Jun, 19 at 6:44 pm

      The decision is based on the total cost that Australia Immigration finds that you can incur on health care system as mentioned above.

      I do not know of any such case yet. I would say that there is no harm in trying.

      There is no official information or confirmation that is sent by immiaccount for clearance of your medical. You only get to know that medical reports have been uploaded to immiaccount.

      If there is any issue wit medical testes, Case officer (CO) will contact you separately.

          Anil Gupta 24 Apr, 19 at 7:44 am

          As per my information, the Australia Immigration process only looks for existence of any communicable diseases and the chances of it affecting their country. All other curable diseases including eye sight do not affect chances of your Australia PR.

It is not a contagious disease. As per doctor’s comment, her brain activity is of a 7-9 months old child. Can this cause an impact on my visa?

    Hi Anil,

    I applied for SC189 a week ago and uploaded all the documents except Medicals. Because, I undergone Medicals in Jul 2018 for 457 dependent visa and informed the doctor about my plan for PR visa too. So, he advised me to go for HIV test as well so that I can use the same medicals for my PR application. Now, when I lodged my application I have mentioned the HAP ID which I used for my medicals in Jul 2018. Is it ok to use my 457 dependent visa medicals for my 189 visa.. Kindly share your thoughts..


    • Anil Gupta

      You have to do medical in the authorized center only as they have access to upload your reports directly on Australia Immiaccount.
      You cannot upload the reports yourself. It has to be done by approved medical center.

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 9 Feb, 19 at 2:09 pm

      You should declare that you had TB at the time of generating HAP ID.
      I don’t think it will be an issue if you do not have TB now. Doctor will run a test again.

      Doctors take a test that can find out if you ever had TB if you dot declare.
      If they find it themselves, then it will affect your application adversely as it will considered as a lie.

    Hi Anil,
    Can you please clarify my doubt. Do we know what kind of medical tests will be conducted for 3 year old kid. My son has speech delay and is able to understand everything. I am currently in US and i suspect my son may not answer any questions from doctor if asked to do. If this will be a problem for visa approval, then i prefer to wait for 6-12 more months and try after my son speaks normal rather than spending $5K for visa fees and medicals. Do the doctors specifically test for developmental delays during the tests?. If you have any insights please let me know.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 14 Jan, 19 at 10:04 am

      Doctor does communicate with kid for tests.
      I do not think that speech delay can be a reason to deny visa or PR. The main thing that visa officer looks for is the presence of communicable diseases like HIV or TB or something similar.

      Doctor does test kid’s throat, eye and ear to find any infections though.
      It is your choice if you want to apply right away or want to wait.

        hi Anil,
        Thank you very much!. I did completed my medical test for the family (myself, son and wife). The doctor did not see any abnormalities with my son, he dint test his speech ability and infact did not spend much time with my son. I received the test results today and it says his medical is passed and no more action is required. Can i safely say that i can proceed with the application or will my son be referred to see pediatrics separately?. Please let me know.


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 9 Feb, 19 at 10:02 am

    Hi Anil,

    I have one question. I have received the invitation of SC 189 . I have submitted the visa application last week and paid the fees. (Self, Spouse, child).

    I have generated the HAP IDs before submitting the visa application. Should I go for medical tests before case officer is assigned to my visa application? Or I can wait also?

    As you know, medical test will be valid for only 1 year and I need to stretch that time so that I do not need to go for medical again. Can I wait for another 2 3 months so that I can buy maximum time for visiting Australia? Or since I have generated the HAP ID separately then I have to undergo medical asap?

    Please let me know if you need more information.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 13 Nov, 18 at 2:44 pm

      Official guidance says that you should get your medical done as early as possible.

      If you wait for case officer to tell you to get medical done, you will easily add another 60 days of processing time to your application visa grant.
      If you get medical done before visa officer starts working on your case, it is possible that there is no need for case officer to contact you and all your papers are complete. In that case, case officer will simply grant you visa.

      It is your choice. I recommend getting it done now.

        Thanks a lot Anil for your help and information. I am highly obliged. I am currently living in the US and waiting for my visa extension. I am getting relocated to different city in next few days so need to wait for the medical appointment in new city. If we get the medical done and are not able to travel AUS within one year then re medical test will help or we cannt use the PR anymore?

          Anil Gupta 15 Nov, 18 at 1:38 pm

          You will get an initial entry date once you get your Australia PR. You will have to travel to Australia at-least once before this date to activate your PR.
          Medical is needed only once for getting the PR.

            Hi Anil,

            Thanks a lot for your guidance. I have completed my medicals and my doctor has submitted the results to Aus Immigration authorities on 13 Dec. I submitted the PR SC189 application on 12 Nov and still case officer is not assigned. I have one question:

            I generated the HAP ID before filing the visa application. Hence in my IMMI account there are two separate applications.
            1. SC189
            2. Medicals

            Do I need to link these applications? Because how the case officer will come to know that my medicals are also completed?

            Please let me know if you need more information.

              Is there an option to connect the two medicals? I am not sure how this can be done if possible.

                Hi Anil,

                Sorry for the confusion. There are not two medicals. Medical test was submitted once only. Just asking how to connect the medical with SC189 application?

                  When you had rwcerece invitation, did you sign in to the existing immiaccount (that you created earlier for medical) or created a new immiaccount login after clicking ‘accept’ invitation?

                  If your signed in using the existing immiaccount, your medicals will be automatically connected to your EOI and visa application.

                    Hi Anil,

                    I have only one IMMI account and both SC189 and medical applications are present in the same account. I never created any separate account for medicals before getting the invite.

                    I received the invite on 12 Oct 2018 and created the account on 13th Oct 2018 and started with the SC189 application. Parallely I initiated new application manually for medicals in the same account to get the HAP IDs. I didn’t want to wait for the CO to come and provide the HAP IDs.

                    SC189: Submitted on 12Nov 2018
                    Medical: Submitted by doctor on 14th Dec 2018.

                    Will the case officer be aware that medicals are already submitted for myself and family?

                    Thanks a lot.

                      In that case, you don’t need to do anything. Your medicals are automatically connected to your application.

                      Hi Anil, Hope you are fine. I have received Request for more Information from AUS Authorities. We did not change the last name of my wife to match my last name on her passport. Her 10th 12th Graduation marksheets are also with old name. However, in the marriage certificate her last name was changed. My daughter’s passport also has her changed last name. Request for more evidence for my wife states” Please provide an explanation and evidence of difference in surnames”. What should I do in this case?

                      Your question about surname change proof is out of scope of this article. I have added it to our forum and answered it there.

    Hi Anil,

    Can you please let me know where can I get HAP ID? Do we get appointment quickly in US? I assume this is not as time consuming as Indian PCC which an take upto 4-6 weeks. Also, can we do before we get ITA (I’m expecting ITA in Nov round) to save time?


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 25 Oct, 18 at 8:49 pm

      Use this step by step process to generate HAP ID:
      https://www.truvisa.com/t/generate-hap-id-for-medical-before-paying-visa-application-fees/1221?u=anil_gupta

      Medical reports are uploaded directly to immiaccount website by doctors and they take 7-14 days.

      The doctors appointment might take time in USA.

      Yes, you can do it before getting ITA but I recommend doing it after ITA.

        Thanks Anil. In Step 8 (Health declarations), Does any applicant intend to work as, or study to be a doctor, dentist, nurse or paramedic during their stay in Australia?

        Does this mean does the primary application or dependents intend to “work as a doctor, dentist, nurse or paramedic” or “study to be doctor, dentist, nurse or paramedic”? My EOI is for 261313 and I’m not claiming any points for my wife and she is not in the field of medicine as well.

          Then, you should answer ‘No’.
