Default KSA Visa Medical - NEOM

For the UK people (and those further afield):

When you got your medical for your work visa, did you have a chest X-ray?

I had my medical recently (with the visa agent appointed health centre) but they didn’t do a chest X-ray which I’ve just now read is part of the tests?

Maybe some kind of exemption, or tested a different way?

I really hope they didn’t just ‘forget’..

Ditto, I had a chest x-ray/medical about 3 weeks ago in the UK.

Speaking to A1 Visa in London, they suggest that some medical providers can do the equivalent tests that a chest X-Ray would show, via the blood test - only if there's certain clinical indications do they refer for a chest X-Ray.

Apparently that's ok for the visa.

We shall see!

Mine was about 30 mins I think. A few questions about my general health background (have you ever had TB, bilharzia etc), urine sample, blood sample, eye test.

Sounds a breeze. Fortunately, I haven't had any of those, are you heading there from the UK?
