General Advice regarding Health Assessments

  1. For your physical examination during the health assessment, Examining Physician will request you to take off all clothes except your underwear. You will be provided a gown to wear and you will be examined in a respectful manner as per medical ethics.
  2. You may request a chaperon to be present during your physical examination, especially if you are to be examined by a physician of the opposite sex.
  3. Do not conceal medical conditions. Deliberate attempts to hide them will be reported to the recipient countries. The absolute majority of medical conditions are admissible, though some may require additional tests.
  4. Do not conceal pregnancy. Pregnancy will not affect your immigration prospects.
  5. Women are advised to avoid health assessment during menstruation as it may affect results of the urine test.
  6. Postpone or re-schedule your appointment if you or your children are ill with fever or rash.
