  • Checking limbs to determine their strength. Reflex and reflux of your muscle will be checked by your doctor to know about the strength of your limbs.
  • Checking response to stimuli/pain and the time takes for you to react by tapering your joints with a small hammer.
  1. Vision and eye test: No need to worry if you wear glasses or contact lens, you have to though go to the test clinic having your glasses on or contact lenses on.The test is same like when you visit an ophthalmologist; you are to read what is written there on board with your naked eyes if you don’t need glasses or contact lenses, else if you need glasses or contact lenses, you can read with them on.
  2. Blood test: Sample of your blood will be collected for checking any HIV infections, STDs, etc.
  3. Urine test: Urinalysis will be carried on with the sample of your urine.
  4. Chest X-ray: An x-ray will be done to check whether you have tuberculosis or any other disease.

When the results come back, they might be shared with you, if the physician wants to share, this entirely depends on your physician, but the results will be sent to IRCC.

For women: 

The only problem women have is that if they have periods, their urine sample might contain traces of blood. Therefore, the physician may ask the woman to come back again in a few days for urinalysis before sending the reports to IRCC. However, some physicians wouldn’t want to wait for you to return and carry on the urinalysis again, rather they’ll send the collected report to IRCC. In such cases, IRCC will again ask you to go for urinalysis. So, don’t worry, traces of blood are there in the urine only because you have a period and that will not cause rejection.
