Tuberculosis testing in Ukraine

Updated 12 September 2014

1. Approved test clinics

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.

The following is an approved clinic in Ukraine.


IOM (located at Healthy & Happy Clinic)
16B Gorkogo str
Kyiv
Ukraine

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. 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. We cannot arrange or prioritise appointments for you.

3. 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
  • 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.

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.

4. Test fees

The fee for TB screening is $120 US for adults and $45 US for children under 11 years of age. The fee must be paid directly to the IOM clinic and does not cover treatment if TB is detected.

The fee is non-refundable if you are tested 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.
