Medical Treatment Visa

The Medical Treatment Visa allows people to travel to Australia for medical treatment or consultations, to support someone needing medical treatment who holds or has applied for this visa or to donate an organ.


You must:

  • meet financial, health and character requirements;
  • not have a medical condition that could be a threat to public health;
  • not hold either of a Domestic Worker (Diplomatic/Consular) visa or a Domestic Worker stream of the Temporary Work (International Relations) visa.

You must also show that you have made arrangements for:

  • your treatment;
  • other expenses related to your stay in Australia;
  • the expenses of anyone who comes with you to Australia (this includes an organ donor's expenses).

The health examinations you need will depend on your personal circumstances, including your period of stay, country of citizenship, time spent in another country during the last five years and your intended activities in Australia.
