Health criteria

It is important for permanent (& some temporary visa) applicants to be aware that it is a requirement for all persons included in the application (partners & children) to be medically examined by doctors approved by the Australian government.

This is to ensure that applicants or their accompanying families do not have any contagious diseases, serious pre-existing medical conditions or disabilities which could cause significant cost to Australia’s health budget or require access to community services that are in high demand.

In the event that one person in the family is found not to meet the health criteria, a permanent visa for all the family will be refused.
