Pre-arrival TB screening rolled out to 68 more countries

The UK government is to extend pre-entry tuberculosis (TB) screening to an additional 67 countries identified as having ‘high incidence’ of the disease by the World Health Organisation. Some of these, such as China, Korea, Nigeria and Kazakhstan, represent countries who have a lot of students wanting to come to study in the UK. Less people will now need screening on arrival at the UK, hopefully meaning reduced waiting times, but it will be one more thing for many students to remember to get sorted before applying for their visa. As always you should apply for your Teir 4 visa as soon as possible. The earliest you can apply is 3 months before your course starts, so don’t delay.
