Help Centre what do you need help with?

I think I’m exempt, why are you asking me for a medical exam?

We may need a medical exam from you to assess your application, even if you only:

  • lived in certain countries and territories for less than 6 months, or
  • will be in Canada for less than 6 months.

If you need one, we’ll send you instructions on how to get your medical exam done. You must go for your medical exam within 30 days of receiving these instructions, or we may refuse your application.
