Got new EP and then got my PR Approval. Should I do medical checkup?

Postby Dicardo » Sun, 30 Jul 2017 6:03 pm

I renewed and got my EP in December 2016. And of course, I have dont medical checkup to fill in the medical report form during that time.
After 7 months, I finally got my PR Approval letter today. Am I needed to go for medical checkup again?

I read the instruction stated in the letter sent to me:
"The medical report should not be issued more than 3 months ago at the time of submission to the department. If a medical report had been submitted to either the ICA or MOM not more than 2 years ago, the applicant will need only to complete the declaration portion of the attached medical form."

the declaration portion of the medical form is something like this:
XXX declare that bla bla bla as I have submitted a medical report containing the above infomation to ICA /MOM bla bla bla on XXX date valid till XXX date.

what was your PR application profile like ?
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

You still need to do a medical check-up if you are an EP holder and your previous EP medical check-up is less than two-year old.

Just to share my case:

I have a medical check-up done less than two years ago for EP. During the completion of PR formalities, the ICA officer told me that as I am an EP holder, my medical report is a confidential data that MOM cannot share it with ICA. So I need to do a medical check-up and re-schedule an appointment.
