Australia enjoys some of the best health standards in the world. In order for Australia to maintain these standards, most visa applicants are required to meet certain minimum health standards in order to be granted a visa. This is what you would call the health requirement.

What you will need to do to meet the health requirement will depend on your individual circumstances and the visa that you have applied or intend to apply for.

All permanent, provisional and certain temporary visa applicants are required to complete health examinations as part of the visa application process to determine if they meet the health requirement. There are different health requirements for permanent, provisional and temporary visas. It is important that you comply with these health requirements to ensure your visa isn’t refused.
