From 31 December 2013, residents of Senegal and those who apply there who wish to come to the UK for more than 6 months must be tested for tuberculosis (TB) before applying for a visa.
If you are applying on or after 31 December 2013 to come to the UK for 6 months or longer you will need to take a TB test.
If you apply for a visa before this date you will not need to take a TB test.
If you plan to come to the UK for less than 6 months you do not need a TB test, unless you are applying for a 6 month fiancé(e) visa.
