Expat medical examination

Will you be posted abroad soon, or are you an employer responsible for expat employees? If so, you will need to arrange a medical examination. KLM Health Services’ expat examination covers various vital functions to ensure a safe and healthy posting abroad.

When is an expat medical examination necessary?

If your employer is sending you abroad for a longer period of time, you are likely to need a medical certificate. KLM Health Services can perform the necessary expat medical examination. Our medical examiners are knowledgeable about circumstances abroad and will perform the most appropriate examinations. In addition to up-to-date information from the National Travel Advice Coordination Centre (LCR), we can also consult our extensive network of physicians abroad.

What does the expat medical examination involve?

The examination starts by your completing a detailed health history questionnaire. We then conduct a number of examinations, testing your blood and urine and measuring your height, weight, body fat percentage, BMI and blood pressure.

If you opt for a comprehensive examination, we will also check your hearing and eyesight, and conduct a resting ECG and a lung function test.

Our medical examiner will discuss your health history questionnaire with you and conduct a physical examination. Depending on your destination, you may also have a vaccination consultation at our Travel Clinic after your examination.

The expat medical examination that you undergo depends on your specific situation. We carry out various types of expat medical examinations. Are you planning to go abroad with your whole family for a longer period of time? We also offer special expat medical examinations for children.
