If you answered yes to both questions, then you need to read this article to learn how to apply for tuberculosis test for UK visa in India, the approved clinics, and TB test fee for different clinics.

How do I get a TB test for UK visa in India?

Below are steps on how to get your TB certificate for UK visa application.

  1. Book an appointment with a clinic authorised by the UK government to issue tuberculosis test certificate for UK visa application. If you get a certificate from another clinic, it will not be accepted.
  2. On the scheduled appointment date, go to the clinic with the required documents and test fees.
  3. When you get to the clinic, you will be given a form to fill with your name, address and the type of visa you want to apply for, after which you will be asked to pay and join the queue (if there are other applicants that came ahead of you).
  4. When it’s your turn, you’ll be called to take the test which is oftentimes a chest x-ray- except you are under 11 years.
  5. The physician will review your results. If you are TB free, the clinic will give you your TB certificate. If you have TB, you will not be issued a certificate. You will be required to receive treatment.

These are the standard documents required.

  1. Original valid ID with photo, such as passport, national ID card or Refugee Asylum seeker card (if applicable)

Some clinics may need documents not captured in the list above. That’s why I earlier advised that when you contact the clinic to book your test, you ask for the documents required.
