Uk Nurse and Arranging a health examination for 457 Visa

Recommended Posts

Hi all.


I have been nominated for a 457 visa by a Perth hospital. I am a registered nurse.


I have applied for my visa through the Immigration Department website (IMMI account) and received an email asking for 4 further details


Two are straight forward:


!. I need to provide a certified copy of my passport- done

2. Evidence of registratio/ Licensing. I have a letter from AHPRA done


The third I can work out from all the previous threads on here:

3. I need to provide evidence of adequate health insurance :wink:


The 4th though is the head scratcher


4. I need to undergo a health examinations for my visa. The website is saying that the panel of physicians are based in London- did people from the UK need to go to London to complete their medical? Living in Scotland this will be a bit of a pain!


Also how much did this cost? I have all the stuff from my own GP/ Occupational Health saying I have been immunised against TB, The various strains of hepatitis, Polio, MMR, chicken pox, that I have been immunised against TB as a kid, that I don't have HIV etc. i take it that can't be used?


Any responses are greatly welcomed. The email says I have 28 days to provide them with the information. :mad:

There are usually panel doctors around the country. We migrated a long time ago so my info is dated. Normally you wouldn't need a medical for the temporary visa but you do if working in health care


Here's a link to the panel Drs. https://www.border.gov.au/Lega/Lega/Help/Location/united-kingdom I don't know where you live, perhaps they think London is your nearest location.

Thanks for the reply


It seems that you are correct and that their are doctors in Edinburgh who are closest to me.
