EXPRESS ENTRY – Preliminary medical examination no longer required

Background: Immigrant Medical Examinations (IMEs) are required for permanent residency. Foreign nationals applying for express entry cannot have the examination carried out by their own doctor; you must see a doctor who is on the list of government-approved contracted doctors.

As of October 1, 2023, pre-medical screenings are no longer required when applying for the Canada Express Entry program. Foreign nationals are asked to wait for instructions from the Government of Canada before undergoing a medical examination. After foreign nationals submit their application for permanent residence, immigration authorities will tell them what type of medical examination they need and how to obtain it. The instructions have been updated to include information for processing authorities about when medical examinations should be requested, if necessary.

If you plan to stay in Canada for less than 6 months, you generally do not need a medical examination, unless you want to work in certain professions where public health must be protected.
If a medical examination is ordered by the Canadian immigration authorities, you cannot have it carried out by your own doctor. You must see a doctor who is on the list of contracted doctors. Here you will find a list of contracted doctors in Canada. If there are any problems with the medical examination, you will be notified in writing.
