After your health examinations

​After your health examinations, the panel physician who examined you:

  • records the results and 
  • makes a recommendation to us about your health status.

The panel physician will not tell you whether you meet the health requirement. The panel clinic submits the results and recommendation to us for assessment. You will either:

The MOC might ask you to:

  • provide more information or
  • have further health examinations.

Results

If you used My Health Declarations, we will not tell you the outcome of your health examinations until you apply for a visa. If you applied online, you will be able to see information about your health assessment processing in your ImmiAccount. You can do this by clicking 'View health assessment’ in the 'View application status' section.

We cannot tell you anything about the results of your health examinations until the panel clinic has submitted them. The panel clinic can tell you if they have submitted your health examination results to the Department.

You may contact the visa processing officer assigned to your case if you have any questions about your health examination results once the panel clinic has submitted your health examination.

Outcomes

Your health case may be cleared without referral to a MOC if your results show you have no significant health conditions.​

If your health case is referred to a MOC, they will assess it and let us know if you:

  • meet the health requirement
  • will meet the health requirement if you sign a health undertaking or
  • do not meet the health requirement.

If you do not meet the health requirement, we will not grant you a visa unless a health waiver is available and exercised.

Validity

The results of your health assessment are valid for 12 months from the time you completed your examinations. If we ask you to sign a health undertaking, this will be valid for 6 months.

More health examinations

Depending on the outcome of your health assessment, we may need you to complete further health examinations. Your visa processing officer will let you know if you need to have more health examinations.
