What is it?

Under the immigration instructions, all applicants must have acceptable standard of health (also referred to as "ASH"). An applicant is said to have an acceptable immigration medical if that person is:

  • unlikely to be a danger to public health; and
  • unlikely to impose significant costs or demands on New Zealand's health services or special education services; and
  • able to undertake the work or study on the basis of which they are applying for a visa, or which is a requirement for the grant of the visa.
