Chest X-Rays for Immigration

If you’ve been told you need a chest x-ray with your NZ visa application, we can help.

We are on Immigration NZ’s list of accepted radiologists. An x-ray is considered safe and painless. It shows the structure of your chest by passing beams through your body. Very dense parts like bones and metal show up clearly as white, and less dense areas show up as black or grey. This allows radiologists to detect any abnormalities. Our x-ray technology generates a digital image immediately, and then our radiologist will write a report for your doctor or Immigration New Zealand.

No appointment necessary, walk-ins welcome.
