Applicants from certain countries/regions require a certificate to show that they are free from infectious pulmonary tuberculosis (TB).

The list of countries/regions is subject to change depending upon local conditions.

The UK Visas & Immigration has recently published information, stating that it is increasing the number of countries in which TB screening is required.

Please check the UKVI website for updates:

You’ll need to have a tuberculosis test if you’re coming to the UK for more than 6 months and are resident in any of the countries in this list.

You must be tested at a clinic that has been approved by the Home Office. See the guidance linked from each country for a list of approved clinics.

Some countries don’t have approved testing centres so you’ll need to get tested in a neighbouring country.
