Come in to see us

When you arrive in our office, you will be seen during your reserved time. The whole visit may take between 45 minutes (for a single person on a quiet day) and up to 2.5 hours for a family of four on a busy day.

You will have a standard physical exam by the panel doctor. This does not involve an internal examination or breast examination. It will be necessary to partially undress for the examination. Gowns are available. A chaperone is offered to all females examined by Dr. Ciszak.

Depending on age, you may also need a chest X-ray and laboratory tests.
X-ray clinic and laboratory are in the same building. The tests do not require fasting (you can eat before you come in).

After the exam

As soon as your medical report is complete, usually in 2-4 days, we will transmit it to Immigration New Zealand in Wellington via the eMedical portal. If any of your tests are abnormal we will let you know before sending the report.

The decision is made exclusively by Immigration New Zealand (INZ), based on the medical facts collected by the doctor, not on the doctor’s opinion or recommendation. After the report is submitted, the doctor has no further access to the case and is not informed about the outcome of your application. You will receive an answer directly from INZ.

If the above does not answer all your questions, please use the Search box on this website, our FAQ page, email us or call us at 604-682-5291. Also check out the official Immigration New Zealand website.
