In 21st century we are moving towards being Global Citizens. Traveling abroad for job assignments, higher education or even for leisure requires some health preparation. Many of us are unaware about the complex process/procedure involved when people travel from one country to another. Alongside several legal formalities they also have to go through medical examinations before moving in to certain country. Legal formalities and medical tests vary from country to country.

The purpose of medical exam is to determine any health conditions that need attention prior to immigration and to restrict infectious diseases from spreading into migrating countries. Based on the medical test results the person would get visa for immigration. if the person fails to qualify medical fitness requirements for Visa then he/she has to go for treatment plan before reapplying for immigration.

Immigration tests are specially focused on seasonal diseases of different countries, various communicable diseases and other important tests like HIV/AIDs, Chest X-Ray, Hepatitis B, VDRL, THC cannabinoids, Malaria parasite, skin test and chest Tuberculosis etc. In certain countries additional health examinations can also be required for public health and safety issues. For example- warnings were being issued by many countries to prevent the spread of Polio or Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) infection.

Person travelling abroad has to sign a declaration of his good health. Those who fail to sign must provide details of their health problems. Individuals diagnosed with HIV positive are denied for entry in many of the countries.  After completing the medical examinations, the Panel Physician or the Civil Surgeon certifies the results on the appropriate forms and place them in a sealed envelope which cannot be opened before presenting it. Immigration medical exams are given by licensed and experienced doctors, who qualify as civil surgeons or panel physicians. Our NABL certified lab partners, who offer Immigration tests, have these civil surgeons/panel physicians on board.
