Medical Test requirement for Canada Immigration

In order to get the Canada Visa, you have to pass a medical examination to enter in Canada as a permanent residence. Directions on how to take the medical examination will usually be sent to you after you put forward your application to the Canada visa office.


CIC do not allow your family doctor to do your medical examination for Canadian Immigration. You must see a medical doctor on Canada’s list of Designated Medical Practitioners at http://www.cic.gc.ca/dmp-md/medical.aspx


Your final medical reports and x-rays for the medical examination turn into the possessions of the Canadian Immigration Medical Authorities and will not be returned to you.
Some important points to be noted for medical test of Canadian Immigration:

1. The medical doctor will not inform about the results of the medical examination to you. Although, the doctor may let you know if you have any health-related problem.

2. The nominated medical practitioner does not give the final conclusion. Citizenship and Immigration Canada will give the final decision on whether or not your medical test is accepted for immigration purposes.

3. The Canada visa office will let you know in writing if there is a problem with your medical examination.

Hi,
I am gonna apply for Canada Immigration. I am Pakistan National. Now a days I am in USA from last more then 6 months. My question is that Can I give my medical in USA? Can I give police report from USA? Bcz its very difficult to go back to my country.

Anonymous said...

Hi, the answer of your first question is yes, you can give your medical examination in USA if you are applying from USA,As far as the second question is concerned, you will be required to submit the police certificate if you are living in a place more than 6 months, so, obviously you will submit the police certificates of Pakistan & USA both..

What type of medical test needed for canada immigration?

Anonymous said...

Hi, I believe ur doctor can advice u if this kind of Hep.B is curable with medicines n then the test can b repeated.u know what the best sum people do is that when they r expecting their medical,,they go for medical tests on their own from their doctor to see if anything needs done n if anything needs treatment,they go for it to make sure it is cured,,not a bad idea...

sir if person suffering from aids in medical test then can he go canada

Anonymous said...

before you can go to Canada, first you have to be fluent with English, can write,& understand english language. passing the Medical exam would be your least priority unless you have a serious, transmissible disease that would more likely place canadian health authorities suffer financial, social, health problems when your accepted as immigrant. If you have a dormant Hepa B, meaning you have anti Hbe with no total immunity, you can still apply to canada, your hepa B infection is not infectious/transmissible. some doctors recommend giving INterferon, an antiviral drug proven to eradicate HEPA B virus. jopal

Hi

I wonder if you can answer my question.

my wife and I have received the Medical Exam form in Sweden where we are student from London Canadian immigration office.

since the lead time in Sweden is longer and it is also more costly to do the exam in sweden, I was thinking to do the medical exam in Iran , my home country.

is there any requirement to undergo the exam in where we are living ( or initiating our application) or we can do the exam when ever it is possible!?

many thank in advance

My name is Anwar. I want to apply for Canadian immigration. What is the process to apply and I got the master degree from UK University, Is it ILETS necessary for me to apply skilled worker category

Anonymous said...

Hepatitis A is a treatable illness and as long as it is no longer active, I don't think that you will be refused a visa. It is however different with Hepatitis B or C carrier state. In these two condition, your body still carries the virus in an inactive state that could eventually reactivate later and cause complications. It is also a transmissible illness thus having hepatitis B or C would probably cause a denial due to medical inadmissibility. With Genital Herpes, have it treated first before having a medical exam.
