Medicals and Police Checks cost

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out how much $$$ it will cost for my visa application - has anyone lodged an application in Australia recently and know how much medicals and Aus police checks cost?

 

I was looking at Medibank Solutions: http://www.medibankhealth.com.au/files/editor_upload/File/documents/Price%20List%20Visa%20Medicals%20MHS%202011-12%20-%20FINALv3.pdf

 

But they have many different items, and sometimes the same item but different prices. Anyone been through the process and know how the fees work?

 

And with the police checks - from reading threads here it seem like they don't need to be done until requested. Would I need to submit Australian police checks seeing as I've lived in Australia? (Or would DIAC get them directly from the police?)

 

Cheers!

Which visa are you applying for and what's your occupation? This will determine which medical tests you have to undergo

You have to get your medicals done at medibank if you are in Australia.

 

You will probably need an Australian police check if you are currently living in Australia, on top of checks for any country you've lived in for a total of 12months or more in the last ten years.

 

Whether you should include these with your application or wait to be asked for them will depend on which visa you've applied for and the processing times.

For a permanent visa, the medical is AU$ 335

 

The police check from the Australian Federal Police is $43, plus postage to canberra.

Hi, his conviction shouldn't be a problem as long as he declared it it on the application form. If he hasn't this might be a problem. If you are concerned give DIAC a call and they should be able to advise you.

As for police checks and medicals, the police checks are £35 per adult and roughly £300 per adult for medicals. You will need HIV and hepatitis blood tests. These are around £80-£100 for both

 

Good luck x

I don't know where abouts you live, but it would be worth checking the prices at different clinics as I have found a big difference in price between them (up to £250 difference) for 2 adults and a little one.

We live in the midlands but will travel down to maidenhead for ours as we will be saving alot of £'s than if we went to our nearest clinic x

That is very steep for medicals, we paid £200 for medicals blood test & Xrays. I would look around as that is a rip off price.

Where did you get yours done? The cheapest I could find was Maidenhead.

We did our Medicals,

 

2 Adults £400

1 16 yr old £200

1 little one £80

 

That was it all in Medical, Xrays, blooods the lot all done at maidenhead.

 

Police checks were £35.00 for both of us didnt have to submit one for our 16 yr old.

 

Unless they have put up the prices that is what we paid in Oct this year and quite a few more have also

I'm new to all this and just trying to figure out what costs are going to be involved so we can budget properly before we commit.............

 

Might be a stupid question but where do I start looking for a clinic to do our medicals. We live in the NE of England.

our medical costs seem to be on the high side, £300 for adults, plus extra 75 quid for me as i worj in healthcare, kids are £90 each. However we are in scotland and the amount it would cost us to travel to the next nearest clinic which is manchester would cost us the difference in petrol and other costs.
