Routine chest X-rays are frequently requested by embassies to rule out infections, the most common is active tuberculosis. What documents patients need to provide for these X-rays varies from one country to the next. Some embassies provide chest X-ray forms directly from their medical department. If this is the case, there is no need for an additional referral from a clinician. However, other embassies do not provide anything. Instead, they expect the applicant to get a signed referral from a clinician.

The most common requests are:

  1. A chest X-ray form from the embassy or clinician referral form
  2. Photographic proof of identification (e.g. driver’s licence or passport)
  3. A passport sized photograph

The list covers the requirements of the more common countries we perform X-rays for. If your country is not on the list then contact your embassy who should be able to advise you.

  • South Africa
  • United Arab Emirates (UAE)
  • Papua New Guinea

Please note we no longer offer medicals or chest x-rays for immigration to New Zealand.
