Medical Examinations during COVID-19
As a result of COVID-19 forcing healthcare facilities to close, applicants have been unable to complete their Australian visa medical examinations during lockdown. However, we are now seeing our clients’ appointments being rescheduled and new bookings taking place as restrictions ease in Australia and the UK.
Advice from Immigration
Immigration has advised that their visa processing officers are aware of these disruptions and will consider extended timeframes when processing your visa application. You do not need to contact Immigration if your Australian visa medical examination appointments has been rescheduled. We recommend uploading a copy of your medical appointment confirmation to your visa application via Immi Account.
