General

The medical examination takes place in our consulting room at the Institut Hospitalier Franco-Britannique, 3 rue Barbès, Levallois Perret. The examination lasts a minimum of 30 minutes per adult followed by other tests carried out the same day (for these no appointment needed). Dr Jolly or Dr Baker will prescribe the obligatory blood test and chest X-ray during your appointment. You must not do them beforehand.

Please allow about 2-3 hours to complete everything.

Beforehand please send your embassy convocation number code ICU or EMR found on your convocation to gunitajolly@wanadoo.fr
(You will not have a number/convocation if your visa demand is Express Entry, work permit or student status related)

You must bring along your passport and the Canadian embassy convocation paper (if applicable).

The doctors use the electronic eMedical system to record and send your medical file. We will take your photograph during the visit, so no need to bring passport photos.

NB: At the beginning of the exam you will be asked to do a simple urine test carried out by the doctor.

After the medical exam

The doctor will send you to the nearby Embassy approved centres in Levallois-Perret to do the necessary blood tests and chest x-ray. We will automatically receive the results of your X-ray, blood and urine tests. You do not have to send them. We will telephone you if there are abnormal results. All the completed medical files are sent electronically to the eMed General Canadian Immigration site within a week. For any queries after the medical exam, patients should contact the Embassy (not Dr Jolly or Dr Baker) to find out the status of the dossier.
