Migration (Required medical assessments) Amendment Instrument (LIN 22/065) 2022


Paragraphs 4005(1)(aa) and 4007(1)(aa) of Schedule 4 to the Regulations each provides that if an applicant is in a class of persons specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing for that paragraph, then the applicant must undertake any medical assessment specified in the instrument and must be assessed by the person specified in the instrument unless a Medical Officer of the Commonwealth decides otherwise.

IMMI 15/144 provides that applicants mentioned in that instrument for paragraphs 4005(1)(aa) and 4007(1)(aa) of Schedule 4 to the Regulations must undertake medical assessments by reference to their country of citizenship or residence, intended activities, and their intended stay period in Australia.

The purpose of the instrument is to amend IMMI 15/144 by updating the additional medical assessments for the class of persons mentioned in paragraph 2(c) of IMMI 15/144 for paragraphs 4005(1)(aa) and 4007(1)(aa) of Schedule 4 to the Regulations.
