There has been an amendment to the migration regulations which removes barriers to applicants applying for medical treatment visas onshore by removing the current ‘Schedule 3’ requirements. These are replaced by the requirement to provide legislatively specified documentation.

This documentation is designed to ensure only applicants with genuine medical conditions may apply for this visa and will include the additional Form 1507 which must be signed by a registered medical practitioner.    

These amendments apply to medical treatment visa applications made on or after 1 July 2017.
