MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russians need to take tuberculosis tests for more than six month visits to Great Britain, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Friday over the decision to this effect, which the British Home Office had made on December 31, 2013.
For short-term visits (less than six months) these tests should not be taken regardless the number of entries and the term of a visa, the ministry reported.
“The British embassy in Moscow reported that a medical check envisages an X-ray scanning,” the Foreign Ministry explained. “If its results are not enough additional laboratory tests will be taken. If the disease is not found a certificate in effect within next six months will be issued to file in the embassy with a visa application,” the ministry said.
The list of accredited clinics, certificates of which the embassy finds valid, is posted at the website of the British Border Agency.
