Am I required to do a general health check before I leave?

Medical check requirements before moving abroad to teach.

Most countries will require you to have a medical check before you can be issued a visa or work permit. Even if you are not required to get one, we strongly advise that you visit your family practitioner for a general check up before you leave for your time abroad. You should also ask your doctor about any specific immunizations or medications that you may need for your travel region.
