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 24 hours of the booked appointment, the full fee will be charged.
All medicals are now processed electronically on eMedical.
Please have the following information ready when you call us:
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.
Further information on the health requirements may be found on the Canadian Immigration & Citizenship website: www.cic.gc.ca.
For Female Applicants:
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
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.
