Tuberculosis examination

When you arrive in Norway, you must be tested for tuberculosis. This applies to anyone arriving  from a country with a high incidence of tuberculosis. This also applies to those arriving from Ukraine. The investigation for tuberculosis should be done during the first two weeks after arrival in Norway. For those above the age of 15 the test will consist of an x-ray of the lungs. For those under the age of 15 the test will instead consist of a blood test (this does not apply to children under 6 months of age. If you have tuberculosis, you will be treated free of charge.  You will find more information here
