Immigration Medicals under Level 1 Covid alert
We are performing Immigration medicals again as normal, although we are still taking infection precautions.
Everyone is screened on arrival before being allowed inside with a few simple questions.
This is to stop our staff contracting any flu or cold viruses and having to stay off work.
If you do have cough, cold or fever, please tell us in advance, you may just need to wear a mask.
We can perform Covid swabs if you are unwell, but this requires calling ahead first on 03 445 4666
Please email to make general enquiries
To book, complete our online booking form. We will then contact you by telephone to arrange a time that suits you.
BOOK AN IMMIGRATION MEDICAL
Cromwell Family Practice is an approved Panel Physician Clinic that can perform Immigration NZ e-medicals. We are the only clinic in Cromwell doing this. We can usually see people within a few days of contacting us, and turnaround time is 2-3 working days.
The exam is quite comprehensive, and includes a full physical examination with a male doctor, plus blood test. Wear comfortable loose clothing. Please allow at least one hour for this whole process. You can have a friend or support person with you if required.
You do NOT need to be fasted/starved, please eat normally and drink plenty before arrival. Do NOT download the Immigration Medical Form, it is not required, nor are passport photos.
Children need to be accompanied by a parent or main guardian.
You will need to arrange an interpreter (NOT a family member) if you cannot understand English well.
You need to bring your original passport. If you don’t have it please contact immigration, copies are not acceptable. If you can, please email us a scan or photo of your passport when booking, and forward any emails from Immigration also. This can have a major impact on the cost of your medical so please send us your immigration letter(s).
We DO NOT KNOW what sort of Visa you are applying for, nor do we automatically know what medical exams you require, it is up to you to tell us!
Cost is $407 for the Physician exam and blood tests. Chest Xrays cost $150 at Pacific Radiology Clinics at Cromwell, Wanaka, or Queenstown. A booking is currently required, we usually arrange this straight after your medical tests.
A cancellation fee will apply if you fail to attend without notifying us.
You can pay by cash, EFTPOS or Visa with paywave. (Note: $15 credit card charge will apply). Some exams cost less. Eg: limited Medicals for children, or if blood tests and Xrays are not required, or follow up annual reports and bloods.
