Medical professionals

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) supports a global panel physician network that completes medical examinations for visa applicants using eMedical - an online system for processing immigration medical examinations.

You need to be a Panel Physician to complete an INZ medical examination

INZ medical examinations must be completed by eMedical enabled panel physicians unless you are in a country without an eMedical enabled panel physician. In these countries local registered or board-certified or licensed medical practitioners can complete the appropriate INZ paper-based medical certificate and send it to the following address:

Postal address

Health Assessment Team
C/O Immigration New Zealand
PO Box 76895
Auckland 2241

Courier deliveries

Health Assessment Team
C/O Immigration New Zealand
DX Box: EP71514
20 Fairfax Avenue
Auckland 1061

All completed medical certificates and associated information must be sent without delay, no more than 5 working days from completion of the examination.

Clinics may charge courier costs for sending the medical certificates to us. The costs of this must be disclosed to the client prior to the examination taking place. Delivery charges must be itemised on the client’s invoice. The client must be provided with the courier tracking number to track delivery of their medical certificate.

New clinic providers

Further clinics may be added by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) to fill a regional gap, to replace clinics removed from the panel, or as needs change and additional capacity is required.

New Zealand Panel Physician Network procurement

The current onshore panel physician network is only contracted until the end of March 2024.

If your clinic is interested in being part of the network beyond March 2024, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Enterprise (MBIE) is now accepting Requests for Proposals (RFPs).

In order to view and submit an RFP you will need to be registered as a supplier on GETS.
