I was talking to someone yesterday about this ‘check’. She recently did the health check and I asked her if they still check for HIV. She didn’t know (or notice), but she did remember the nurse saying, "we check for something like HIV but it isn’t HIV."
I can only guess it is syphilis or another disease that can be spread through sexual activity?
But, you were exempt. Does that mean others aren’t?
I assume you are from a western country. Do the SE Asian workers get the exemption too?[/quote]
Boy, this thread has seen some days. There’s no reason why there shouldn’t be another twist.
I’ve just started the application process to study Chinese in Taichung. From what I understand, I’m going to have to get an HIV cert before I apply for the visa here in Bangkok. (I’m not Thai) Is it just an HIV check or does immigration need more information? In a perfect world, I would love to be informed and get everything done efficiently. Is there anyone with first hand experience that can guide me? Many thanks!
