Default BUPA Medical Appointments not available

Hey Guys,

Anyone else here struggling to find an appointment with BUPA Melbourne?

Also are there any alternative Medical Centres that can conduct the Medicals for 189?

Cheers,
Pratik

Unfortunately within Australia only Bupa are allowed to conduct the tests

You will have to wait for them to reopen for testing or DHA to appoint alternate agencies
Keep checking the DHA website for any updates

Cheers

Currently it is not a good idea to do health checkup in any clinic because of the pandemic.
I guess the only way is to explain it to DHA and wait for the whole thing passes finally.

​​​Visa medical appointments

Clients should be aware of disruptions to visa medical services, both in Australia and outside Australia, due to COVID-19.

Our visa processing officers are aware of the disruptions. We will take the extended timeframes in to account when considering your visa application.

You do not need to contact us if your visa medical has been rescheduled.

If you have not yet lodged a visa application or have not been requested to undertake an immigration medical examination, there is no need to contact a visa medical services clinic in Australia or an overseas panel clinic at this time.

In Australia

Bupa Visa Medical Services and other Visa Medical Services clinics continue to operate. However, visa medical services have reduced due to requirements of Department of Health in relation to COVID-19.

The measures include social distancing. This is to be implemented for all existing bookings from 19 March onwards. The measures may reduce appointment availability in many centres.

We will cancel some bookings and issue refunds. We will contact all people with cancelled appointments and reschedule into available appointments before opening the booking system to new appointments.

These measures are temporary. They will be reviewed regularly on the advice of the Department of Health.

The measures are intended to ensure the health and safety of visa applicants attending clinics, as well as clinic staff, in line with Australian Government recommendations.

Outside Australia

There are disruptions to overseas services. Some clinics have temporarily suspended or reduced operations for the next few months.

​A large number of panel clinics are implementing additional risk management controls according to their national management responses to COVID-19 and their respective government’s advice.
