What to Expect from a Chinese Visa Medical

Overview of Chinese visa medical process.
What to expect from the process of going through Chinese visa medical.

A resumption of Chinese visa medical is expected as authorities start to cautiously loosen lock-down measures in Wuhan and the rest of China.

We have been conducting Chinese visa medical for over 15 years on behalf of individuals and visa agencies and are well-trusted by consulates. For those who were, or are due to apply for a visa to relocate to China for work or study, we share a short summary of the process of Chinese visa medicals.

We remain open during the current London and UK-wide lock-down and continue to process China and other visa medicals though with stringent safeguards in place

Booking process

You can make an appointment by calling or emailing us, or alternatively via our easy to use online booking system. We are conveniently located in central London close to both Oxford Circus and Bond Street stations.

On the day

Once we have set an appointment, you will need to bring your passport or a photocopy of it, a driver’s licence, or another form of ID. You will also need to bring along a passport-sized photo against a white background.

The medical

The medical with one of our experienced doctors takes approximately 45 minutes and includes a physical check-up, a resting Electro-Cardiogram (ECG) – a simple and not painful test on your heart’s rhythm – and blood tests which will check:

  • your blood group; and test for
  • Syphilis
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B and liver function.

A further 15 minutes is required for the chest X-ray which will check for the presence of Tuberculosis.

Accessing the results

Once the medical and tests are completed, the full results and paperwork will be ready within 24 hours. We will contact you to inform you of the outcome and arrange collection.

You can book your medical by calling us on 02073231023 or via email to [email protected].
