In Need of Visa Medicals? We Can Help

The London Vaccination Clinic has all sorts of Visa services including providing a medical test for Visa medicals – and your all-important Visa medical certificate. 

If that’s exactly what you need, you’ve come to the right place. 

But before we get into the ins and outs of the Visa medical certificates, let’s discuss the basics of how’s best to get Visa Medicals in London. There are things you need to know and questions to be answered, for example: What is a Visa medical? What does the process involve? And why might you need one?

What is a Visa Medical?

In a nutshell, a Visa medical is a mandatory medical test that assesses the current state of your health. These health tests are sometimes required to get your travel Visa (or work Visa) and enter the country you’re planning to visit. 

After a successful medical test that gives you the all-clear, you’ll then receive a medical certificate to prove you’re fit and healthy enough to visit the country. You’ll be required to show this certificate as part of your Visa application, so keep it safe in your collection of travel documents.

Why Do You Need a Visa Medical Certificate?

Whether you need to take a medical test for a VISA all depends on the country you’re visiting. Individual countries decide on these travel laws. 

The countries that require inbound travellers to pass a medical test are ensuring those people coming in are healthy and not bringing unwanted diseases that could affect its own population.

Each country has their own individual requirements and regulations – essentially a list of necessary health tests and checks to prove you’re not posing a threat.

You might also be required to get a Visa medical to receive your work permit. Depending on the work you’re planning to undertake, you’ll need to prove you are fit to do so. 

What Does a Medical Test for a Visa Involve?

Again, it all depends on the country you need a Visa medical for. Each country’s Visa process is different, and therefore each individual medical test for a Visa will differ too. 

However, generally, a Visa medical test involves some form of physical examination. You may need to participate in the following tests and checks:

  • questionnaire regarding your personal and family medical history
  • various blood tests and a urine sample to test for certain diseases
  • ECG test to prove you have no underlying heart condition 
  • sexual health screening for diseases and conditions such as HIV, hepatatis A & B, and syphilis 
  • additional tests like a chest X-ray, etc.

Once your tests are complete, your samples will be examined/sent to a laboratory. Your results will be recorded, and then sent to you – along with a medical certificate to say that you have passed.

Vaccinations for Visa medicals

Another part of a medical certificate for your visa application is vaccinations. 

To enter a country, you may be required to have particular vaccinations. So you’ll need to show your vaccination history to prove your high level of immunity against certain diseases.  

If you haven’t been vaccinated, don’t worry – here at London Vaccination we can provide you with whatever vaccine(s) you need to travel safely and legally.
