Medical Exam for Canada Visa

July 19, 2022

Congratulations on getting a Canadian Visa. Now you want to know if you need a medical exam.

If you plan to stay for a period of 6 months or less, without taking up certain jobs, you won’t need a medical exam. However, once you plan to stay for more than 6 months or take up a job that brings you in close contact with people, it’s mandatory for you to take an immigration medical exam.

The immigration laws don’t allow your doctor to handle this exam, so you must get a panel physician Canada approves from the available list. The IRCC panel physician you choose only conducts your CIC medical exam and sends the results to eMedical where the final decision is made.

If you want to get a permanent residence in Calgary, for instance, and have a problem with your Express Entry medical exam, you’ll be contacted in writing through the relevant authority.

You can either choose to get a panel physician IRCC approves to conduct an upfront medical exam or get one after you apply. Both options are open to you regardless of whether you plan to work, study or visit (including parent and grandparent supervise).

Should you elect to book an appointment with an IRCC medical panel after submitting your application, you must do so within 30 days of receiving instructions on how to get your medical exam done.

Please note that the CIC panel physician you have an appointment with will require you to properly identify yourself using a government-issued document with your photograph and signature. Not all CIC panel physicians use eMedical. In that case, you’ll need to bring 4 recent photographs.

It’s mandatory for you to pay all fees related to your medical exam, including any special tests.

Please, visit the Panel Physicians portal to learn more and book for your immigration medicals.
