Two visas are available with regard to Medical Treatment Visas. Subclass 675 is for short-term visits for up to three months and Subclass 685 is for visits of more than three months. The Medical Treatment Visa is usually issued on the basis of an arrangement to undergo medical treatment or medical consultations in Australia. There are certain conditions that must be met before a visa can be issued, including that applicant's have enough funds to support themselves and any accompanying persons during the visit.
The Medical Treatment Visa (MTV) is for visitors planning medical treatment or consultations. This visa does not cover procedures for surrogate motherhood.
The Medical Treatment Visa is also for people accompanying someone who intends being a patient. The period of stay covers the time for the agreed treatment plan, but does not include long periods for convalescence. The Australia government expects that medical visitors will leave Australia before their visa expires.
