MOSCOW, January 10, 22:15 /ITAR-TASS/. Russians applying for a British visa for a term of more than six months will have to produce a health declaration certifying they have no tuberculosis, the Russian foreign ministry said on Friday, citing a relevant decision of the British Department of Health dated December 31, 2014.
No such declaration is needed for short-term visits (less than six months), regardless of the number of such visits.
“According to the information provided by the British embassy in Moscow, applicants for such visas must undergo an X-ray examination,” the ministry said. “In case, such an examination is not enough, additional laboratory tests will be appointed. In case a person proves tuberculosis negative, a health declaration valid for a term of six months is issued, which is to be filed along with the visa application.”
The list of accredited clinics is posted on the official website of the United Kingdom Border Agency.
