We provide all medical services required for your immigration application such as General Medical Certificate, Limited Medical Certificate, Chest X Ray and any add-on test.
If you would like to have your Immigration Medical done at The Doctors Middlemore and you know what type of Medical you need already, please do one of the following:
- Download and fill in the following two forms along with a current passport photo & a copy of your passport and email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Patient Information Form
- Client Declaration Form
- Phone us on 09 275 9977 to begin the process so we can email you the immigration start forms.
- Walk-in anytime Monday to Sunday 8am - 5pm to begin the process.
At the first point of contact applicants will need to confirm what type of Medical is required, either (1) a Full Immigration Medical Package or (2) a Limited Immigration Medical Package. Immigration NZ will give advice to applicants in regard to what type of Medical they require before they apply.
If an interpreter is required for appointments – it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide.
We aim to expand our service provision in the near future with the inclusion of online application processing, potentially stream lining the process further.
How does it work?
- Prior to the first appointment is for administration and all applicants are requested to arrive early if still needing to complete forms for photocopying and to make their payment with reception.
- A second appointment is then required with the Medical Team Nurse and X-ray (if required) and can be arranged on the same day wherever possible. This appointment is for tests and X-rays to be undertaken.
- The third and final appointment is completed with a GP once the Laboratory Tests are returned to The Doctors Middlemore - this process could take up to 4 x days so there is a wait period between appointments.
What to bring to your first appointment?
