Tuberculosis testing in Ukraine

Updated 1 March 2023

You do not need to get a valid TB certificate if you’re applying on any of the following routes:

You must be tested for tuberculosis (TB) if you’re coming to the UK for more than 6 months and are a resident of Ukraine.

Your test must be from a clinic approved by the Home Office. We will not accept a TB test certificate from a clinic we have not approved.

Approved clinic

IOM – Healthy and Happy Clinic

15 Tarasivska str

Telephone: +38 044 584 36 68

Fax: +38 044 584 36 72



Attending the clinic

You should contact the approved clinic to book an appointment and 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.

At busy times you may have to wait 10 days for an appointment, especially during the UK student visa peak season between June and September.

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 please let the clinic know.

What you should bring with you

  • the passport you are using to submit your application and valid ID, which contains your photograph, such as a national ID card
  • 2 recent passport sized photographs
  • the TB test fee
  • if you have had TB in the past or have any other lung disease, you should provide details of your previous screening and, if possible, your medical notes and x-ray results

On a separate sheet of paper, please write down your address in Ukraine (written in Latin alphabet) and your email. You should also write down your address and telephone in the UK (both addresses in Ukraine and in the UK should be the same as in your visa application).

Test fees

11 years and above Below 11 years

The fee must be paid directly to the IOM clinic in Ukrainian Hryvnya only. It does not cover treatment if TB is detected.

The fee is non-refundable if you test positive for TB or if you decide not to travel to the UK. The cost of the test is in addition to the visa application fee.
