Would my infant daughter born in UK need a TB screening test?

Post by farazk86 » Sat Dec 08, 2018 8:22 pm

Hi,

My daughter was born in UK in Fenruary 2018. She left UK on 25 April 2018 with her mother to go back home to Pakistan. I am now applying for her visa to join me in March 2019. Would she need to get her TB test done and attached with her application:

The TB test gov link states the following:
You will not need a TB test if any of the following apply:
  • you’re a diplomat accredited to the UK
  • you’re a returning UK resident and have not been away for more than 2 years
  • you lived for at least 6 months in a country where TB screening is not required by the UK, and you’ve been away from that country for no more than 6 months
Does she fall under the second point as she was born in UK and has not been away fro more than 2 year??

Many thanks

Hi

I think none apply to her and she needs TB test.

Returning Resident means a person wants to come back to live in the UK if they were previously settled (given 'indefinite leave to enter or remain') and They have been away for more than 2 years.
