I have asked this question in a different post but subject matter probably belongs in here. I will be applying for partner visa later this year. 

I have two minor children who live with my ex wife who I support. Do I need to have medical exams for the children when I apply? If so, are they the same medical exams I will provide immigration? If I need their medical exams done, do I also wait until instructed by immigration to do so?

thank you all

Dependent children whether migrating or not are subject to the health criteria, and will need to undertake the required health checks. As health checks are only valid for 12 months, I would recommend waiting until you are requested by the Department to undertake the examinations.

The medical assessment criteria is **generally** the same for adults and children. However some of the tests used on adults are ineffective with children.  Examples are xrays which are often replaced with an alternative (pathology or other imaging) tests, as xrays can present a health risk to the very young, and are often not all that effective in the young for detecting lung conditions.

Additionally, determining developmental/neurological/psychological disorders in children usually utilises very different tests compared to adults.
