- 0Jun 12, '09 by gambutrolfor canadian embassy medical exams here are the requirements:
1. health history (if any health history warrants further investigation then they would require additional laboratory exams or clearance from a specialist)
2. if you have tattoos or recent pearcings, blood transfusions or surgery then you would be required to take the Hepa B screening
3. Chest X-Ray
4. AIDS screening
5. Urine analysis
6. vision tests
7. physical exam
as what I have written earlier.. any findings or history would require additional laboratory exams or clearance from specialists.. like if you have history of PTB you'll be required to have a clearance from a pulmonologist..

But, the medical clinic that you are going into for your medical exam might not honor the results of the previous medical exam. They only honor results conducted by their own clinic. I had the same feeling when I left Cebu to go to US, though on a different kind of visa. Good Luck!
