Health requirements and immigration doctors
To be able to enter New Zealand as a visitor, we need to be assured that you and any family members with you have an acceptable standard of health.
A guide to the health requirements (external link) you must meet to be granted a visa to travel to New Zealand is available at the Immigration New Zealand website.
You may be required to provide a medical certificate. This depends on the length of time you intend to stay in New Zealand.
If you intend to stay:
- less than six months, no medical certificate is required
- more than 12 months, you must complete a General Medical Certificate INZ1007 (external link) and a Chest X-Ray Certificate INZ1096 (external link)
- more than six months, but less than 12 months, you may need to provide a Chest X-Ray Certificate INZ1096 (external link)
