Tuberculosis test

For a number of nationalities it is obligatory to undergo a tuberculosis test and - if necessary - treatment - in order to obtain a residence permit.

You are granted the residence permit under the express condition that you will actually undergo a TB test within three months. Should it become clear after the issue of a residence permit that - despite signing the declaration of intent - you failed to undergo a TB test within the period of three months, this may result in a cancellation of the permit that was granted.

To whom does it apply?
The obligation to undergo the test does not apply if you are a national of one of the following countries: one of the Member States of the EU or the EEA, Australia, Canada, Israel, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Suriname, United States of America and Switzerland (including Liechtenstein). Nor does the obligation to undergo the test apply if you have an EC residence permit for long-term residents issued by another EU country or are his/her family member and were already admitted to another EU country as a family member of the long-term resident.

For the application of your visa and or residence permit you have to hand in a declaration (pdf) which states that you are willing to take this TB test. Zuyd organises two central sessions for the TB test in Maastricht in September or October. If you can’t take part (e.g. if your application for the visa and/or residence permit is sent too late) you have to make an individual appointment the Community Health Services desk in Roermond. The costs for this test are € 45,60 and must be paid cash by bank card.
