Immigration Medical


1. Making Your Appointment

The practice is open on Mondays to Fridays from 9:00am to 5:00pm.

For visa medical appointments, please use our online BOOKING FORM and questionnaire. Please note, if you have an early appointment, you will not be allowed access into the building until 9:00am. Otherwise, please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time to allow us to carry out the necessary administration.

Please note Knightsbridge Doctors operate a cancellation policy.  If an immigration medical examination is cancelled within 10 days of the appointment a £50 cancellation charge is incurred.  Additionally if the cancellation is within 48 hours of the booked appointment, 50 percent of the appointment fee will be charged. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the paperwork / administration details are up to date and so the applicant is in a position to have the booked immigration medical examination. Applicants who attend and don't require an Immigration Medical Examination or cancel at short notice will be subject to the Practice cancellation policy.

All medicals are now processed electronically on eMedical

If you have not already lodged an application with IRCC or do not have an IME/UMI number, an “upfront medical” can be completed prior to your making a visa application. This involves us creating a new IRCC case file for you. In this situation after completing your immigration medical examination, you will be sent your information sheet. You will then need to upload this to your visa application.

Your unique identification number will be located in the top right-hand corner. This number enables Canadian Immigration to manually link your immigration medical examination with your visa application.

You will have three months from the date of your medical appointment to notify Canadian Immigration of this number.

Further information on the health requirements may be found on the Canadian Immigration & Citizenship website: www.cic.gc.ca.

For Female Applicants:

  • A full physical examination is required so if you wish to request a female Doctor, please let us know when booking the appointment. The examination does not involve a breast or pelvic examination.

2. What To Bring To Your Appointment

  • A valid Passport; the medical cannot proceed without this
  • Your Medical Report – Client Biodata and Summary Form
  • Spectacles or contact lenses if you wear them
  • Regarding important medical conditions, please bring your most recent clinic letter which usually should have a summary of important diagnoses and treatment

Upfront applicants (UFME) who have not yet applied for their visas only need to bring a valid passport.

As Canadian Immigration medicals are processed through the online eMedical system there is no need to bring photographs

3. What To Expect During The Examination

For an individual adult, please allow 1.5 hours from arrival for your appointment. However, we recommend allowing 2 hours in case of unforseen delays.

All applicants will undergo a full medical examination, including a urine test for anyone aged 5 years and above.

The medical involves a physical examination, where the applicant will undress to underwear whilst wearing a gown.

If you require a chaperone during the medical examination, ideally please let us know in advance. You will need to undress down to your underclothes.

Applicants aged 11 years and above will require a chest X-ray.

Visa applicants aged 15 years and above will require blood tests for HIV and syphilis status and kidney function.

There is no need to fast for the blood tests.

Usually, the results take 3-4 working days to process and are then submitted to Immigration via their online eMedical system.
