Australia Announces new Medical Service Provider for Immigrants

Australia Medical Service Provider
Australia has appointed a new immigration medical service provider named as Bupa Medical Visa Services to replace existing Medibank Health Solutions (MHS) from July 2014.

For the time being, if the applicants intend to carry out Australia immigration health examinations in Australia they must schedule an appointment with the MHS, as stated by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

Applicants are advised to use an online booking service to schedule visa medical appointments. In fact, Australia now uses the eMedical online system to process all immigration health examinations fulfilled in the country. The applicants who do not have access to the internet can schedule an appointment via telephone and discuss various options available to complete the health examination prior to appointment.

The spokesman of the DIBP said that majority of the visa applicants and their dependents in some cases are required to satisfy the health requirements irrespective of their wish to migrate to Australia. He added that in order to save the Australian community from health and safety risks, the applicants must not have any disease that pose a threat to the country.

Undertaking a health examination or not will depend upon the personal situations and a visa that one applies for. All permanent and specific temporary visa applicants are required to take up health examinations as part of the visa application process.

If the applicants do not satisfy health requirements, their visa may be rejected but this will depend on the type of visa subclass that one has filed. However, for few visa subclasses it is not necessary to meet health requirements, the spokesman added.
