One of our GMC certified doctors will perform your medical examination. This includes a physical examination, blood pressure, weight, and a Chest X-ray. Although we can't guarantee either a male or a female doctor, you do have the right to have a chaperone present to the examination. Please note; some parts of the examination required for a South Africa medical visa are intimate, such as a visual inspection of the external genitalia.

A chest X-ray is required and will need to take place at a local hospital. We’ll arrange this appointment for you and make sure it goes as smoothly as possible. Please note this may be subject to change and an alternative provider may be used for the chest X-ray. You will, however, be able to choose your own appointment time. They're opening times are 9 am to 7pm weekdays and 9am to 12 p.m on Saturdays. You don't need to pay anything to Spire Hospital as Health Klinix will cover this cost.

The cost of the South Africa visa medical report is £286, including the Chest X-ray. If you need any other tests after your medical, these will be charged extra.

  • Please allow 5 working days to receive your South Africa visa medical form. We'll have to wait 3-5 working days for the results of your chest X-ray, and only after receiving the results are we able to issue the medical report.

  • This depends on a number of factors such as your health, location, duration of your stay and your planned activities. 


    We’ll complete an in depth travel risk assessment and make vaccination recommendations based on this information. There’s normally a consultation charge for this but as you're already having a medical examination, the cost of the travel consultation is free and you’ll only pay for any vaccinations you receive.

  • This can vary and is subject to change so we’d advise you to contact the South African Department of Home Affairs directly for their latest guidelines.
