Applicants from certain countries/regions require a certificate to show that they are free from infectious pulmonary tuberculosis (TB).
The list of countries/regions is subject to change depending upon local conditions.
The UK Border Agency has recently published information, stating that it is increasing the number of countries in which TB screening is required.
Please check the UKBA website for updates:
If you are from one of these countries/regions, carry your TB screening certificate in your hand luggage should you need to present it to an immigration officer on arrival in the UK.
