Tuberculosis tests for visa applicants

Matilda International Hospital is an approved provider for the UK Pre-Departure tuberculosis (TB) Screening.

People going to the UK for more than 6 months will need to be tested for tuberculosis (TB) if they have been residents in Hong Kong. Details on the screening requirements and who it applies to can be found on the UK Government website.

Screening for TB involves a basic assessment by the doctor and a chest x-ray. A clearance certificate is issued if the screening is negative. The clearance certificate is valid for 6 months from the date of the chest x-ray or 3 months if the applicant or any of the family member has been treated for TB.
