Australian immigration medicals can only be performed by Australian Immigration panel doctors, so cannot be done by other doctors. We are fortunate to have three Australian panel doctors at CityMed.
The medical is completed and filed electronically through the Australian Immigration Department’s eMedical system. We can only access your eMedical with your unique HAP ID number. You will need to obtain this from your Australian Immigration case manager or online from the link below, before we can book you an appointment. You will also be asked to bring in your eMedical referral letter.
