After your health examinations

After your health examinations, the panel physician who examines you:

  • records the results, and 
  • makes a recommendation to us about your health status
The panel physician will not tell you whether they think 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
  • have more 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. You will be able to see information about your health assessment processing in ImmiAccount if you applied online 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.

Contact the visa officer assigned to your case if you have any questions about your health examination results after your health examination has been submitted.

Outcomes

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

If your case is referred, the MOC will assess it and let us know if:

  • you meet the health requirement, or
  • you will meet the health requirement if you sign a health undertaking, or
  • you don't meet the health requirement

If you don't 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 usually valid for 12 months. If we ask you to sign a health undertaking, they are valid for 6 months.

More health examinations

Depending on our assessment of your health, we might ask you to have more health examinations. Your visa processing officer will let you know after you lodge your visa application.
