Foreigners who live and work in Ukraine, for obtaining work permit need a certificate of absence of infectious diseases. This certificate is required also for citizens of Ukraine who leave for work or for permanent residence abroad.
The difficulty is that different embassies have their own requirements for the clearance of such information, there is no single standard. However, all embassies require the conclusions of the following specialists:
- therapist – for overall health;
- phthisiatrician – for the absence of TB infection;
- dermatologist – for no sexually transmitted diseases.
Also one must provide the results of the tests:
- syphilis (Wassermann reaction);
- Hepatitis A, B and C;
- X-ray (made not later than a year ago).
Collection of all necessary medical documents and information is exhaustive and time-consuming. It becomes a special difficulty for foreigners who are not familiar with work principles of Ukrainian clinics and hospitals.
Also foreigners who want to get a work permit in Ukraine should present the certificate of passing the preventive narcological review under the form № 140/o. This certificate is issued to foreigners on the results of the examination on the presence or absence of drug addiction, substance abuse and chronic alcoholism.
