X rays

Postby Nickyjo39 » Thu 9 Jan 2014 18:02 GMT

I'm trying to organise medicals for me and my husband, the application form for essential skills visa reads as if we will need x rays as staying over 12 months, but the visa guide that goes with it reads as if we are exempt because we live in the uk and have not been to any countries not on their list of "safe" countries.
Can anyone help?? I don't want to spend money I don't need to but I don't want to send incomplete applications off either!

You can send a message to the Immigration New Zealand department to double check. When we did our medicals, we needed to have X-Rays (I still have mine on CD somewhere...), but the rules may have changed since 2008.
