IR1/CR1 - Medical in Different Country

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


Would it be possible to get a medical done by a panel physician in a country (Australia) other than the one you will be interviewing in (New Zealand)? I ask because my wife and I will be out of our country of residence for the next couple of weeks and are expecting our interview letter to come any day now. Rather than fly out for a medical then fly out again for the interview, would we be able to go to a panel physician in the country we are currently in?

Note, our residence has not changed and we will not be requesting to have the interview in a country other than NZ.

Thanks for the help!
