Do I need to be tested for tuberculosis?
Some people must be tested for tuberculosis when they come to Norway.
You must get tested if
- you come from a country with a high incidence of tuberculosis. This means that your country is on The Norwegian Institute of Public Health's list of countries with high and very high incidence of tuberculosis (external website), and
- you are going to stay in Norway for more than three months
What should you do to test yourself?
If you are required to be tested for tuberculosis, you must contact the municipality where you will live. The municipality carries out the testing. You must test yourself as soon as possible after arrival to Norway.
