Medical and radiological examination costs

Permanent and some temporary visa applicants may be required to undertake and pay for radiological and medical examinations. All costs are paid by the applicant directly to the doctors or clinics undertaking the examination. The cost of these examinations undertaken in Australia is approximately $410.
Costs of examinations undertaken outside Australia may vary from country to country. There may be additional costs if further tests or couriers are required. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (the department) does not regulate such charges but where allegations of excessive charging are made, the department may contact the doctor and request that charges be amended in line with prices charged in that country for
similar medical examinations.

For people being examined in Australia, there is also a fee payable to Medibank Health Solutions for a digital photo of each person examined.
