Aspiring Medical Centre is the only approved provider of Immigration eMedicals for Immigration New Zealand in Wanaka.
eMedical is the electronic processing system that is used by our clinic to record the results of your medical examination and send them to Immigration New Zealand
You can also make an appointment for your immigration medical in person by calling in to Aspiring Medical Centre. Due to the high demand for appointments we require a deposit of $100 to confirm your booking. This can be done by credit card over the phone or by direct credit to our bank account. If the deposit is not paid in time then your appointment will be cancelled and allocated to someone else. If you cancel your appointment more than 48 hours prior to your appointment time then your deposit will be refunded. Cancellation within 48 hours of your appointment means no refund will be given.
When you come in for your appointment you MUST bring your original passport (not a photocopy) and also passports for any children or dependents who are having a medical completed. For other acceptable forms of identification see the Immigration New Zealand website. Please feel free to bring a friend or interpreter along if you think this will make the consultation easier. If you do not bring your original passport to your appointment, the $100 deposit will not be refunded.
First you will see the nurse, who will take your photo, take blood tests and record measurements. This takes 30–45 minutes. During this process you will be asked to give a urine specimen, so please have a big drink of water before you come to your appointment. Women cannot be menstruating (having your period) at the time of consultation, so please time your appointment appropriately. There is no need to fast before your appointment, please eat as normal.
You will then be examined by a doctor, which takes 15–30 minutes.
There may be some waiting time, so allow an hour and a half for your visit.
The cost of a standard eMedical is $410 for an adult. This includes a set of standard blood tests. The cost for a child is $222 (no blood tests required). Depending on the outcome of your initial examination, you may be asked to undertake further tests or be referred to a specialist. In this case there will be additional costs. Full payment is required at the time of your appointment.
Once we get the results of your blood tests back from the laboratory (this may take a few days) we will complete the eMedical and send it electronically to Immigration New Zealand. You do not need to come back to the clinic to get your results. Immigration New Zealand will contact you regarding the status of your application using the preferred method you have selected during your appointment – usually email or phone. We will NOT contact you unless we need you to come back for further tests or examinations.
We can only complete the medical examination component of your medical. If you need a chest x-ray this can be done at Pacific Radiology, which is located next to us in the Wanaka Lakes Health Centre. There is a separate charge for this service which is paid to Pacific Radiology.
