Post Form 26 - Medical examination for an Australian visa

This form states:

"Doctors, dentists, nurses and paramedics
Applicants for temporary visas intending to work as (or
studying to be) a doctor, dentist, nurse or paramedic are
required to undergo a chest x-ray and medical examination as
well as HIV, Hepatitis B and C testing."

Because I am not going to undergo study and/or work as any of the occupations listed, does this mean that the X-ray part of the requirements is not compulsory, this kind of test is very expensive in the USA.

Hi , I just did my medical test here in Australia .. Yes you need the xray and the blood tests. If you are going to work in the medical field you need a more extensive blood tests. It is really not that bad. Good luck!!!

The x-ray is compulsory.
Some blood testes are also specific for certain visas. Student visas require less exams than a partner visa for example and skilled visa.

The x-ray is to double check if applicants are free of tuberculosis. I know some people with different type of visas and they all did the x-ray. My partner also did it and he lodged a partner visa.
