Immigration Express is busy and buzzing like a beehive, and that’s just the way the team likes it. Proud of the role it plays in bringing overseas workers to Canterbury, Immigration Express knows that our rebuild progresses, our factories continue to produce and our cows get milked in part because of its contribution as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for immigration medicals.
Portugese, Filipino, Cantonese, Mandarin and Shanghai-ese are spoken by the team which is friendly and professional through what can be a complex time for a new migrant and family.
The required X-rays, blood tests, biometrics and medicals are all done right there in the clinic which holds ‘Approved Panel Physicians for New Zealand Immigration’ status, and there is free parking outside the door. Hours are from 7am until 5pm but can be extended by special arrangement. The all-inclusive fee is $470 with no hidden extras and no charges for copies of your results.
Co-owner Daphne Durning says having recently gone up from three radiographers to five, the team is still busy and always looking for more doctors and medical staff. Daphne’s philosophy is for the business to fit around the team’s circumstances and families, not the other way around. “I always wanted a job that fitted around my life and couldn’t find that, so I have ensured it is integral to our own business,” Daphne says.
No wonder it’s such a happy place to visit and a great place to work.
