OBTAINING A VISA CERTIFICATE
For a visa examination, you need to book 1–1.5 hours for a general health check up and any supplementary investigations, which are all conducted on the same day.
For a visa certificate, you need to bring with you:
- your passport
- 6 colour passport photos from adults, 4 colour passport photos from children
- an up-to-date vaccination passport or certificate
If the visa certificate so requires, the necessary vaccinations are provided. A cardiolipin test is conducted in the laboratory and a chest X-ray is taken at the X-ray department from adults only. For these test, you do not need to book an appointment, simply visit Eira Hospital’s laboratory and X-ray department during opening hours. The investigations and vaccinations are paid for separately. The certificate is ready one week after your visit.
Supplementary information about countries requirements for visa certificates are normally found on the relevant embassies’ websites.
