We provide a full Immigration Medical Service at The Hastings Health Centre at very competitive rates. We aim to provide a high quality, friendly, helpful and efficient service.
Immigration medicals are now completed online and we submit the medical information for you. They are called e-medicals.
Please phone (06) 873 8590 or email forms to firstname.lastname@example.org who will explain the process to you.
Before an appointment can be made, you will need to come into GP5 at The Hastings Health Centre with your passport. You will complete some forms, sign a declaration and we will take your photo. You can download a copy of the information we require, print it off and complete in advance if you wish, but we will still need to see you before you book your appointment to take your photo.
An appointment will then be made for you to come back and see the Doctor, for a chest x-ray, and your blood tests as required. You will be given an information sheet with your NZER number on which links your medical to your visa application and you should send this to immigration. We suggest you check with New Zealand Immigration or their website to establish what is required of you – for example if you need a full medical or limited medical and whether you require a chest x-ray: https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas
If you do not speak English, please bring an interpreter with you to your appointments.
Once all tests are done, (the results are usually back within 48 hours), we will forward the results of your tests and the examination direct to Immigration. If you provide an email address, you will receive an email when your results have been sent to immigration.
