Health Check for Working in China Visa

Recommended Posts

Really appreciate any help with this: Trying to get all my documents together for coming to work in Shanghai, and I need to get the "health report". Does anyone know what they are looking for?

Do I need to have specific tests done?

They told me to check with the embassy here in Canada, but they seem to never answer the phone during their supposed office hours. Any advice is appreciated, thanks!!

You have your health check here. Your HR department will organise this for you. You go to a special clinic which will be full of foreigners looking totally bewildered but the little nurses are very kind and will make sure you get every check before you leave.

I recently came to China (late Jan) and was required to do a medical check in my home country before I could get my visa.

Apparently it was a new requirement and came in
it involved tests for HIV and other STDs, ecg, chest x-ray and other general questions.

You then have to do another check when you get here that is very similar!

Good luck!

Health check is normally done at the hospital in Jinbang Lu (close to Shanghai Zoo).

Takes about 45 mins and is pretty efficient. In 4-5 days you get the report.

Especially the eye and ear test are funny...they take about 1 minute each and as long you are able to see or hear something you pass.

The most interesting thing is comparing your health record when you come to China, with the one when you leave.

You will notice a striking difference.
