From the Immigration website there is this information about the medical examination
Getting an x-ray or medical examination
If you need to get a chest x-ray or medical examination, you'll need to bring certain things along to your appointment. At your appointment the physician will examine you and send us information we can use to check you have an acceptable standard of health.
If you have to get a chest x-ray or medical examination, you’ll need to use a doctor or radiologist from our 'List of Panel Physicians'.
If there aren’t any Panel Physicians in your country, you can arrange to have a chest x-ray or medical examination with any registered doctor.

When to have your x-ray or medical examination
The chest x-ray and medical certificates that doctors send us to confirm you’ve had your x-ray and/or medical examination must be no more than 3 months old when we receive them. For this reason, we recommend you arrange any medical appointments as soon as you can before applying for a visa.
What to bring to your appointment
- an identity document
- your glasses or contact lenses if you use them
- a list of any medication you are taking (including dosage)
- any relevant medical reports or x-rays
- if you’re 17 or under, your parent or legal guardian with you
- if you’re using an immigration adviser, a completed ‘Immigration Adviser Details’ form.
If you choose to, you can bring a family member, support person, and/or interpreter to your appointment. Let the clinic know when you make your appointment if you will be bringing another person with you.

If you’re from an eMedical country
You’ll need to read a copy of the ‘eMedical consent and declaration’ before your examination. During your examination you’ll be asked to confirm that you understand it and then sign it in front of your physician - if you’re aged 17 years or under, your parent or guardian will need to sign it for you.
After your eMedical examination, you’ll be given an eMedical reference number to include with your visa application.

What happens at a medical examination
There are 3 parts to the medical examination:
- Medical history and physical examination.
- Urine and blood tests.
- Chest x-ray, if required.
The physician will complete the physical examination. He or she will check your height, weight, mental state, hearing and vision, listen to your heart, lungs, feel your abdomen and check your reflexes, power and the rest of your nervous system.
You’ll need to remove some items of clothing for the physical examination. Some parts of the physical examination may be completed by a nurse or health care assistant.
You will need to provide a urine sample during the medical examination.
You will also need to get blood tests, and possibly a chest x-ray and some other tests if necessary.
You may need to go to different places to get some tests done.
If you’d like a copy of your medical examination results, you should advise the clinic at the time you are undergoing your examination.
