Thread: Medical - Australian applicants

  1. #1

    Default Medical - Australian applicants

    Has any Australian organised their medical for the application?

    I've heard that the x-ray can be replaced with a tb test?

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Cheers.

    If it's anything like previous years, you can contact the consulate and get it clarified with authority.

    Ostensibly the chest X-ray is to check for TB and some people who have extreme phobias of x-rays have had TB tests (IIRC blood TB tests) instead. (As an aside, you'll get more x-ray exposure from a flight from Aus to Japan than a single chest x-ray anyway.)

    I'm actually drafting an email to the Melbourne consulate now.

    I don't have a problem with being x rayed. My doctor was just unsure if it was necessary - along with his statement. Saying that he's not an MD but part of a fellowship.

    So no drama doing what have to - just trying to clarify what that is.

    Not an MD, just in a fellowship? I'm starting to get a cult vibe.

    Seriously though, if you have no problem with an x-ray, just get an x-ray. It's a big part of any health check in Japan.
