  • Cromwell Family Practice is an approved Panel Physician Clinic that can perform Immigration NZ e-medicals. We are easy to work with and can usually see you in around 1 week after booking. Just fill out the booking form and we will be in touch within 24 hours, you do not need to come in to the clinic first.

  • 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 paper Immigration Medical Form, it is not required, nor are printed 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.

  • 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.

  • You can pay by cash, EFTPOS or Visa.  (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.
