Medical examination is one of the principal criteria that must be paid attention to by all candidates while applying for a PR visa. It has been seen that candidates put their maximum efforts in arranging the educational records or work experience certifications. However, medical is equally important and must be paid equal attention. This test is important, as the Government of Canada doesn’t need physically unfit migrants to settle in the country, as it would bring many health related threat for the existing residents of Canada.

The motive behind Canada demanding your medicinal examination is to make sure that you are not having serious or communicable ailments when you enter the country. Clearing the examination is an absolute necessity as without that you won’t be regarded as fit to enter Canada and your application will be dismissed on these grounds of medicinal ineligibility.

CIC Rules for Canada immigration medical examination

IRCC prescribes certain rules regarding the entire medicinal exam that establish your fitness status in front of the authorities. To be called medically fit, CIC wants you to undertake the following medical examinations:

  • Physical examination
  • Blood test
  • Urine test

The physical examination means examining the general state of well being of a candidate. It includes checking your skin condition, blood pressure levels, etc. Blood test is required for the candidate to point out infections (like HIV) in your blood.

How to select the doctor for your medical examination?

CIC provides you a lit of eligible doctors around you among which you can select. Note that CIC has no control over the expense or fee charged by any particular doctor.

To select the doctor from the prescribed list of eligible doctors, you need to visit the CIC website and search by yourself or else you can get in touch with us and we shall guide you all regarding the medical examination.

It is mandatory for all PR applicants to undergo medical examination through the panel of doctors recommended by CIC on its website. Any other doctor’s medical certification may stand ineligible.

In case you are consulting an immigration officer for your PR process, in that case, the board doctor will conduct medicinal tests of candidates and send the reports to visa specialists. The visa specialists talk about any issue in your medicinal report that is affecting your visa application and try to improve the situation together.

During the examination:

Now what happens when you actually reach for your medicals? When you arrive, the panel physician or other attending staff will approach you for the identity proof. Your photo will be taken for the records.

The specialist will round out a medicinal history survey with you. This survey will be a series of questions regarding your past or existing ailments of any. They will also ask you some information about any medicines or treatments you’re taking or have taken in the past.

What is the right time to get your medical test done?

You can get your test done before or after you apply, keeping in mind the time duration you have before immigrating. This is because at the port, you will get entry in the country only if your medical is still valid.

You should go for your medicinal test inside 30 days of getting these directions from the authorities. If you fail to adhere to these guidelines, CIC may decline your application even after a great score or perfect levels of credentials.
