2. Attending the clinic

You should contact one of the approved clinics to book an appointment. You should make it clear you need the test for a UK visa application. You can expect to get an appointment within a few days of your request. We cannot arrange or prioritise appointments for you.

3. What you should bring with you

When you attend your appointment you should bring:

  • proof of identification, which contains your photograph, such as your passport
  • the tuberculosis test fee
  • details of your previous screening and, if possible, your medical notes and x-ray results only if you have had tuberculosis in the past or have any other lung disease

If you would like an appointment with a female clinician, please ask the clinic when you schedule your appointment.

If you need to cancel your appointment you should contact the clinic and refer to their cancellation policy and procedure.

4. Test fees

The fees for the test will vary from clinic to clinic. The test fee does not cover treatment if you have tuberculosis.
