TB Test Centre And Fees For Bangladeshi Prospective Students To UK

Share this:

When you apply for a (Tier 4) visa or student visa to study in the UK from Bangladesh, you will be asked to provide evidence that you have tested positive for Tuberculosis testing.

You must be tested for tuberculosis (TB) if you are coming to the UK for 6 months or more and are a resident of Bangladesh.

Your test must be from a clinic approved by the Home Office otherwise they will not accept a TB test certificate from a clinic they have not approved. Now the question is where you can go to get tested for tuberculosis (TB) in Bangladesh for your UK visa application?

You can only get tested from the following approved clinics:

If you are from Dhaka
Migration Health Assessment Clinic, Ground & First Floors, House: 13/A, Road: 136, Gulshan-1, Dhaka 1212.
Telephone: +8801713066230, +8801730309825
Operating hours: Sundays to Thursdays, 8:30 am – 5 pm

If you are from Sylhet
Migration Health Assessment Clinic (MHAC), Medi-Aid Heart Centre, South Dorga Gate (Near Minar), Dorga Moholla, Sylhet 3100
Telephone: +8801713066230, +8801730309825
Operating hours: Sundays to Thursdays, 8:30 am – 5 pm

Attending the clinic
You can contact any clinic to book an appointment either by telephone, email or visiting the clinic. You should make it clear you need the test for a UK visa application.
You can expect to get an appointment a few days after you request one. We cannot arrange or prioritise appointments for you.
If you need to cancel your appointment, you should contact the clinic as soon as possible.

What you should bring with you

  • valid identification which contains your photograph such as a passport, national ID card or Refugee Asylum Seeker Card
  • a photocopy of your identification
  • the tuberculosis test fee
  • if you have had tuberculosis in the past or have any other lung disease you should provide details of your previous screening and, if possible, your medical notes and x-ray results

If you would like an appointment with a female clinician, please ask the clinic when you schedule your appointment.

Test fees
11 years and above : 85 USD
Below 11 years: 30 USD
Below 11 years – follow up investigation: 85 USD

The fee must be paid in Bangladeshi Taka (BDT) directly at clinic. The US dollar amount will be converted to Bangladeshi Taka based on the IOM official exchange rate. The cost of the test is in addition to the visa application fee.

The fee is not refundable if the person is tested positive for TB or decides not travel to the UK, or their visa is refused.

The test fee does not cover treatment if you already have TB.

  • All children will need to initially have a certificate which will be issued after a questionnaire and physical exam. If there is any indication of TB, a chest X-ray will be conducted along with other follow-up tests.
