Because of border restrictions, applicants should apply for a medical only when advised by Immigration New Zealand.
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 24 hours of the booked appointment, the full fee will be charged.
Further information on the health requirements may be found on the New Zealand Immigration website: www.immigration.govt.nz.

For Female Applicants:
New Zealand Immigration Medicals are now processed online through the eMedical system as ‘Upfront Medicals’. This means that your health case will be created in eMedical at the clinic on the day of your appointment.
Each applicant will be presented with an eMedical Information Sheet before leaving the clinic. This enable them to lodge their visa application and will contain the applicant’s unique medical identifier (NZER).
All applicants will have a full medical examination, including a urine test if aged 5 years and above.
The medical itself involves a physical examination, where the applicant will undress to underwear whilst wearing a gown.
If you would like a chaperone present during the medical examination, please do not hesitate to request one.
All applicants aged 11 years and above will need a chest X-ray.
All full applicants (General Medical Certificate) aged 15 years and above will also need blood tests for HIV status, syphilis, hepatitis B and C, kidney function test, full blood count and diabetes test (HbA1c).
Applicants for a Limited Medical Certificate will need a full blood count and kidney function test.
