Health requirement

You and all family members applying for the visa with you must meet our health requirement.

Usually, other members of your family unit who do not apply for the visa also need to meet the requirement.

    You might need to undertake health checks if:
  • you hold a Contributory Aged Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 884)
  • your subclass 884 visa ended in the 28 days immediately before you apply for this subclass 864 visa
  • your subclass 884 visa ended more than 28 days before you apply for this visa but you can show compassionate and compelling reasons to be considered to still hold the visa.

You will need to undertake health checks if you do not hold a Contributory Aged Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 884).

Do not arrange health checks until we ask you to.
