We’re about to do our visa trip to the TRO in London and downloaded the form from the TRO UK website last night. In their resident visa section, there’s also a health requirements form to fill out which wants all the things you’d pay a packet to get done privately and are, well frankly, a bit of a cheek - such as AIDS and syphyllis (prob spelled wrongly, sorry!) and chest x-ray. The chances of us being able to a) get them done in time; and b) not have to spend a lot of money on them are pretty slim.
Does anyone know if they are actually required? I’m going to 'phone the TRO this afternoon and just ask what’s needed for resident visa application and see if they say so, but you know how it is with TW officialdom - you just cannot get the same story twice!!
I’m a bit cross really as ShiDa haven’t said anything about any health requirements, nor have the part of the TRO who deal with my scholarship or even the visa section when I contacted them with general questions. It wouldn’t surprise me though as you often think you’ve got everything done and then someone throws some rule no-one knows about at you and you’re back to square one…
