DIAC make Amendments in Re-Use Health Check Policy

The Department of Immigration & Citizenship (DIAC) of Australia has suspended the clause that allows visa applicants to “re-use” previous health examination reports. It further means that applicants must get a full permanent health clearance as a part of the mandatory requirements under recent immigration policies.


The Australian department of Immigration & Citizenship was receiving certain complaints relevant to the “upgrade process” that resulted in the processing delays.  It further leads to amendments in the ‘Re-Use Health Check Policy’ by DIAC. But certain arrangements have been retained. For instance, Temporary Health Examination reports that are still valid and were cleared at a local level can be re used for Temporary Visa Application.

The rules relevant to the “Re-use” of health clearances are also same! To avoid any clutter, it would be advised to take advice from an experienced Immigration expert to avoid any confusions or error in your application form.
