MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES FOR THE UK TB SCREENING PROGRAMME
The purpose of TB screening is to detect the presence of active pulmonary TB amongst those who wish to apply to travel to the UK. It involves the pre-departure testing of tuberculosis for individuals who intend to apply for a UK visa for longer than six (6) months. However, the UK immigration authorities may, on occasion, require screening of others seeking permission to travel to the UK.
The UK Government designated the Migration Health Department (MHD) of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to conduct the screening of applicants according to the UK Department of Health Protocol.
Screening of applicants will be carried out by Panel Physicians who have been appointed by the UK authorities.

Important
It is advisable for applicants to perform the TB test at least 10 weeks prior to their application because if chest x-ray findings are suggestive of pulmonary tuberculosis, they will be referred to Sputum Smears/Culture tests (6-8 weeks).
The Certificates will be issued on the same day to the applicants whose results are negative. If results are positive, the applicant will be referred for treatment for a period of at least 6 months
The screening fee must be paid on the day of assessment, in local currency (MDL), at the IOM designated bank.
