As of November 23, 2017, the country/territory list for the immigration medical exam (IME) requirement for temporary residents applying to come to Canada for more than six months has changed. If you lived in Fiji, Singapore, or Tunisia in the past year (6 months or more), you now need an IME. If you lived in Argentina, Bahrain, Belize, Colombia, Portugal, the Seychelles, Surinam, or Venezuela, you may no longer need an IME.
The Government of Canada has updated its list of countries for which an immigration medical examination is required in order to apply for a temporary resident visa.
The changes came into effect Nov. 23, 2017, and affect the following people:
For temporary resident visa applications submitted before Nov. 23, 2017, from countries for which an IME is no longer required, IRCC says the following applies:
- No IME is required if the IME has not been started.
- An IME is required if the IME has been started.
