Medical Inadmissibility

When making an application, whether for permanent residence or temporary entry, medical examinations may need to be undergone in order to determine the success of an application.

Canada examines your health in order to determine whether you have a health condition that will be a risk to public safety, or if you have a health condition that will cause excessive demands on health or social services. If your medical examination is positive, you will be issued an electronic medical certificate.

Although not everyone is required to go through a medical examination, if you are required to have one and you do not, your application will be considered abandoned. If you are inside Canada and you are required to have a medical examination or have a follow-up examination and you fail to do so, you may be removed from Canada.

A medical examination may include a physical examination, a mental examination, a review of your past medical records, diagnostics, etc… Fees accrued for medical examinations are the responsibility of the applicant.

Some examples of applications that demand mandatory medical examinations include applying for a Super Visa, or if you have lived temporarily for six consecutive months in one or more of the countries and territories listed on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website, you must also have a medical examination.

Certain rules apply regarding how a medical examination should properly be executed. One rule CIC sets out is that a panel of physicians approved by CIC must perform the examination. This can be done before you submit your application or at the request of a visa officer.

Before making an application, you should have the knowledge of whether a medical examination is required in order to prevent delays.
