As of October 1, 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) no longer requires Express Entry applicants and their family members to provide an upfront Immigration Medical Exams (IME) at the time of application.
When completing your application, you will be asked to upload proof of your upfront medical exam in the Express Entry Profile Builder, but this is no longer required:
- If you have previously completed an IME as part of a previous application, please include it in your application using the same upload slot. You should include the IME or UMI number of your most recent medical exam.
- If you have never completed an IME, upload a blank document in the same upload slot.
IRCC will send you instructions when it is time to complete your IME, only if a new IME is required.
