Hi Doulin's

I can't remember you're whole story but my South African husband had to show a chest x-ray when he arrived at Heathrow. Neither my son nor I had to as we were on British passports.

As far as I can remember from what my qork colleague told me and she is SA, was that her visa and passport along with a medical certificate from her doctor was required. Don't know why they need to see a medical certificate.

Have you tried emailing them (the customs at the airport) direct to ask?

Why do people from SA need to produce a medical certificate?
We arrived here from Sydney 4 weeks ago. OH validated his ILR visa and all he had to show was the visa in the passport

I have no idea. I was amazed when I was told that. South Africa I meant by the way. You should only need your visa and passport nothing else should be required. Always best to contact the airport customs direct via email to clarify.

I think it's due to South Africa having a high rate of TB. We all had to go to a local hospital and within three months of us being here to be jabbed with a needle to test our skin for TB and I had to go and have an x-ray down cos they couldn't see the scar on my arm from my BCG jab that I think I had when I was in my teens.

Yep I think that's it.

I think that there's a list somewhere of countries that require a TB Chest Xray.

TB screening

Applicants for UK visas valid for longer than six months in certain countries now require a certificate to show that they are free from infectious pulmonary tuberculosis (TB).

In the past year and a half the Government has implemented a programme to screen people applying to enter the UK for more than six months for tuberculosis. The initiative is part of the Government's Five Year Strategy for Asylum and Immigration. Testing has begun in the following countries: Bangladesh, Ghana (which also takes applications from Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Togo and Niger), Kenya (which also take applications from residents of Eritrea and Somalia), Pakistan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Thailand (which also takes applications from Cambodia and Laos).

This programme is part of our ‘firm but fair’ policy on immigration and will benefit the UK’s public health by preventing the entry into the UK of infectious tuberculosis sufferers until they have been successfully treated. It will also support the Department of Health’s Tuberculosis Action Plan. The programme also has advantages for applicants who may benefit from and early diagnosis of TB. Host countries will also benefit from earlier detection of individuals with the disease.

Screening will generate information about infectious tuberculosis among travellers to the UK and will help us to better understand the effect of migration on tuberculosis in the UK. We will also be looking at ways to share data about tuberculosis rates with host countries to inform their own public health programmes.

A further benefit of the programme is that successful applicants will no longer need to undergo medical inspection on arrival in the UK, before being allowed to enter the country. This can be a time consuming process but can be avoided if those coming to the UK carry their screening certificate in their hand luggage to present to an immigration officer on arrival in the UK.

To help applicants, their sponsors and others with an interest in the UK's entry clearance operations overseas, we have prepared two sets of questions and answers (Q&A) which we hope will provide answers to most of the questions that this scheme will raise:
Health screening: general Q&A
Health screening: Q&A for applicants

Use the links below to find out more about visa application process in countries where the health screening programme has started.
