Although it is NOT required for your visa medical examination, the gold standard Abbott's laboratory COVID-19 Antibody test is now available at the clinic for any client who would like to be tested. Please ask the doctor for further details when you attend.

At Northern Visa Medicals, we specialise exclusively in performing visa medicals for the Australian, Canadian and New Zealand governments.


Based in Citylabs, Manchester, we are accredited by the Departments of Immigration of the Australian, New Zealand and Canadian governments.

Clients are seen by one of our approved panel physicians. This is a physician or radiologist highly experienced in the field, appointed and sanctioned by the relevant immigration authority. The migration medicals may only be performed by a panel physician.

The Northern Visa Medicals team shares over 30 years’ experience in this specific field and is supported by a skilled and knowledgeable group of professionals including physicians, radiologists, radiographers, nurses, phlebotomists, health care assistants and administrative personnel. Each of our team members works to ensure that your experience with Northern Visa Medicals is comfortable and efficient.

The venue at Citylabs offers all the necessary facilities to complete your examination in one visit.

At Northern Visa Medicals we are able to offer appointments to suit your needs, whether that be at short notice or some time in advance.

Each nation uses the same e-Medical electronic system for the submission of completed reports. These are submitted to the relevant Department of Immigration as quickly as possible so that visa decisions can be made without delay.

We also offer medicals for clients intending to work/live in South Africa, Cayman Islands, China, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and Indonesia. These countries use a paper based system and we are registered with The Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
