How to Generate HAP ID for Medical

You can generate HAP ID for Australia immigration medical before you submit or lodge your 189 or 190 visa application. You can even get health checks done before getting invited.

  1. Log in to ImmiAccount or Create a new account
    Start My Health Declarations as it is mandatory in order to generate HAP ID.
  2. Create New Application inside ImmiAccount
    Once you have logged in, click ‘New application’.

  3. Then click the Health -> My Health Declarations option to open a new health declarations wizard.

Health Declaration Wizard

  1. Accept Terms and conditions and click Next.

  2. Visa details
    Select the visa that you intend to apply.For visa 190, there is no option here. So, you probably cannot generate HAP ID for 190 visa unless you get an invitation.As a matter of fact, your 189 visa medical check up will work for 190 visa too.
    If you expect or have received 189 invitation, choose 189 or any other visa as applicable.

  3. Personal details

  4. Identity• Details of any expired passports that you previously used to travel to Australia,
    • Details of any visa grant numbers for any previous Australian visas, and
    • Details of any visa label numbers for any previous Australian visas.

  5. Contact details

  6. Family members
    For each accompanying family member, you need to click on the Add button and provide their personal details on the new page that displays and then click the Confirm button.After you click on the Confirm button, the family member will be added to the list on the accompanying family members page of the form. When you have finished, click on the Next button.This is important to generate HAP ID for each family member.

  7. Travel details
    For each family member that you added in last step, you need to provide their travel history.

    If you select Yes to question about intentions to apply for the permanent stay in Australia within the next 6-12 months, an additional question will display asking whether you wish to have your health assessed for a permanent stay in Australia, that is complete health examinations for a permanent stay level.

    If you applying for 189 or 190 visa, you should select YES.

  8. Health declarations
    These are the same questions that appear in the health section of a visa application.If you answer Yes to any of the questions, an additional window will appear asking you to select which
    person the yes answer applies to, and for you to provide additional information.Note: You need to complete your health declaration questions ‘upfront’ (that is, prior to lodging your visa
    application) in order for Australian immigration to determine which health examinations (if any) you are required to complete.

    Note: When you lodge your visa application you will be asked to complete these questions again in case your answers/circumstances have changed since recording them on your My Health Declarations form.

  9. Form declarations
    You must agree to each declaration before clicking on the Next button.

  10. Review and Submit
    All the information that you have entered on My Health Declarations form will appear on the review page for you to review.Please check that all the information provided is correct before proceeding as you will be unable to change your answers once the Submit Application button has been pressed.

Once you are done with wizard, you need to generate the HAP ID referral letter for Doctor’s appointment.

Generate HAP ID and Referral Letter

Click on the Health assessment link on the left side of the application page (in your immiaccount).

Click Actions -> Organise health examinations link for each applicant separately.
The Organise health examinations link will take you to complete your medical history online and generate a referral letter to complete your immigration health.

Sample HAP ID letter

Mistakes in Health Declarations

Be careful while selecting your health declaration answers as a mistake may prompt you to get the checks done again at your cost.
It will also delay the processing of your health examinations and subsequently your visa application.

Medical Check Before Lodging Visa Application

You can get Australia immigration Medical test done before submitting your visa application to save on processing time.

The medical reports are valid for 12 months from the date of issue.

    Hi , I’m planning to apply for student visa soon.. I did medicals on 12 th November 2019 and I had fever that day and blood pressure was on the high end.. I told them I have fever and that’s why bp is so high and never had any other health issues.They told me to do serum creatinine test and vech to make sure nothing was wrong.. and both test results was normal.. They uploaded serum creatinine test in emedical and unni account is showing Health clearance provided , no actions required. But I’m yet to apply for a visa.. should I be worried about bp even though everything else is normal ? Can I take one more medical by creating another hap id as I’m sure bp will not be high next time and submit that hap id in my visa application ? Is it ok if I did 2 medicals and provide one of them ?

    Hi Anil
    I’m looking to lodge NSW 190 by end of the year, had a few queries:

    1) I already have an SA 489 visa. Do I need to create a new immi account or can I use the existing one?

    2) Can I use the existing medicals (dated Mar 26 2019)?

    3) Is it mandatory to upload the PCCs and medicals along with other docs? Or can I upload them separately a month later?

    Hi Anil,
    Thanks for sharing this useful information.
    I have got the invitation for 190 and I want to do the medicals before I lodge the visa application as suggested by you.
    In the Health Declaration section, In the visa category I see the option of 189. 190 is not listed.
    I believe I can select 189 Visa option even though I have received invite for 190.
    Can you please confirm .?

    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 20 Jun, 19 at 10:58 am

      I suggest to do the medicals for 190 visa after lodging the application as there is no option to select 190 for HAP ID.

    HI..Once I log into my immiaccount and have started filling my online application, can I also work on my health declarations to generate my hap ID simultaneously..?
    I plan on saving my application and submitting it as soon as I have undergone my health examination. I assume both my application and hap id will remain linked..just want to clarify to avoid any confusion.

      Also once i have had my health check, in the visa application, I click yes to the question where they ask about the health examination if done right?

      • Anil Gupta
        Anil Gupta 11 Jun, 19 at 11:24 am

        I suggest to submit your application and then generate HAP ID if you have already got the invite.

          I am sorry, I should have mentioned, I am a doctor going for one month observership and am applying for visitor visa subclass 600 (Business stream). I also have an invitation letter for the observation programme.
          I am not exactly sure what you mean by ‘got the invite’ in my case.
          My travel plans are for end of August.
          In my case should I submit my application and then generate HAP ID or process via MHD?
          Which will assure a faster visa process? Thanks.

            Ohh. i thought you are talking about the Australia PR process and its invitation.

            You can generate the HAP ID anytime and submit. It does not matter if you do it now or later as your application will not be processed until all documents are uploaded.
