People who want to either migrate or stay temporarily on working and tourist visas must not be of character concern. The Migration Act includes a character set to ensure that visa applicants, people seeking to migrate and visa holders to be of an acceptable character.
The test puts the onus on visa applicants to prove that they are of good character. The provision also contains discretionary powers to either refuse or cancel visas when issues of character arise.
Some examples of when a person will fail the character test include:
In order for the migration authorities to determine whether you are of good character, you will be requested to provide penal clearance certificates for each country you have resided in for 12 months or more over the last 10 years. In some instances, you may also be asked to obtain penal clearance certificates for periods beyond the 10 years or for countries where you have spent less than 12 months when the case warrants it.

Applicants for most types of visas are required to meet health requirements, amongst other prescribed criteria, before a visa can be granted. All applications for permanent migration visas are required to undergo a full medical examination and chest x-ray with a “panel doctor” (see below) before a visa can be granted. Some applicants for temporary stay visas may also be required to undergo one of both examinations, or provide a “fitness to travel” letter from a doctor before a visa can be granted.
All children/dependents included in your application aged 11+ must undertake full medical and X-ray examination.
All the persons included in your application as well as all of your dependents (even if they are not included in your application) MUST undertake a medical exam, and must “pass” the medical. If one fails, all fail – and the visa will be refused.
Certain medical conditions (if not cured) e.g. TB will result in an immediate refusal of your application. Other conditions, including HIV, cancer and certain disabilities (blindness, mental disability) may potentially result in a visa refusal. If you are concerned, please contact us to discuss your position.
There is a designated a group of general practitioners (GPs) and radiologists, commonly known as “panel doctors”, to conduct medical examinations on its behalf.
Please note: Female doctors are included in the list of panel doctors. A woman has the right to have a chaperone present during the examination if desired. Children should be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian during all medical examinations.
If you have been asked to provide a doctor’s letter, testifying to your fitness to travel, you can obtain the letter from any GP. That is, it does not have to be from a panel doctor. The doctor’s letter should comment on your fitness to travel, to remain for the proposed length of stay and to return to your home country. If the doctor has identified a health condition, she/he should comment on how the condition is being treated and how it is to be managed in the country of residence.
In most applications, if one member of the family unit fails the medical exam, all fail, and the visa application will be refused.
Exceptions include: Applications for employer nominated visas (TR) and this may be extended to certain business skills PR applications in future (in both cases this is subject to strict criteria)
The inability of applicants (where there is a health concern) to get clarification before they submit an application has always been a problem. Generally one has to submit an application first, and run the risk of losing all the application fees if the visa is refused on medical grounds to get clarification on medical exams.
