List of Medical Tests for Saudi Visa

In order to process work visa from your home country, you will have to go through the medical examination from the laboratories approved by the Saudi Embassy. The result of the medical report is automatically updated with the system in the Saudi Embassy with your passport. If outcome of the report is negative, your visa will not be processed. This is the reason, it is always suggested to go through the same medical exam from the private laboratory and see if there is some deficiency. You can improve the deficiency identified in the report of the private laboratory with the consultation of some doctor. However, if you directly go to the approved medical laboratory and finds some infectious disease in the medical test, you may have to face a ban of certain period from visiting Saudi Arabia. Here in this article, I am providing details of the medical tests which are performed in your home country to process Saudi Visa. You need to have a slip from the agent who is processing your visa to appear in medical test. However, if your family is going through this test for permanent family visa through Eitamad Centers in Pakistan, there is no need of this kind of slip.

Medical Test for Saudi Visa for Pregnant Woman

There is entirely a separate procedure for the medical test for Saudi Visa for Pregnant Woman. We have described this procedure in detail in this link “Medical Test for SaudiVisa for Pregnant Woman

Medical Test for Kids for Saudi Visa

Kids under the age of 12 need only to go to designated medical centers approved by GAMCA and submit original passport and 2 photos and visa. They will normally check weight height and ask vaccines given to kid regularly and issue a medical fit certificate. There is no need for laboratory tests. The fee of medical test of children is significantly lesser than the fee of normal medical test for Saudi Visa.

Validity of Medical Test for Saudi Visa

Medical Test Report issued by the approved lab is valid for 60 days. It means you need to stamp your visa on passport within 60 days of issuance of such medical test report.

One of the GAMCA Center for RAWALPINDI/ISLAMABAD Residents!

Coordinates: 33.711697, 73.037726

The function of this center is to help immigrants as well as Saudi Embassy to regulate the implementation of medical examinations of prospective immigrants of GCC countries. Their job is to issue a token thereby assigning a medical center which will conduct the relevant tests. They keep a record of the results of each report (FIT/UNFIT) as well as communicate the results back to Saudi Embassy.

Applicants for Gulf countries can check their medical report online at following link. You just need to enter applicant's passport number and select your nationality. http://lmra.bh/portal/en/gamca

E-Number: Once your medical test report is clear, you will have to go to your agent (Etimad Center) and get an E-Number from there. The medical center will upload your report using the E-Number. E number is in fact online visa application number. If someone has to come to Saudi Arabia on a permanent visa so before visa endorsement he has to apply online at Enjaz IT website and has to pay the fee by credit card about 10.5 dollars or so. I believe E number is a requirement for visa endorsement at Saudi embassy not for making the report online. Seems there is some social pact between Etimad and Medical centers who demand E number first.

    Hello, were you able to get a response for your question? thanks

    Last week I sent my family with GAMCA unfit medical to Etimad center Lahore they verbally advised to bring Health Insurance from KSA and a letter from company mentioning her visa of housewife. When I asked my company they refused to provide, they said according to CCHI health insurance before border entry number health insurance is not allowed, and your family visa nature is very obvious so no need of a letter for that.

  • HNAMA

    Produce your health insurance card and a company letter along with the submission of your family passport in Etimad centers.
    They will process her passport but no still grantee for visa stamp.

  • Azamat A

    So to clarify – the conclusion is that despite having HCV antibodies test positive you are able to get an Iqama. Do I understand it correctly? Basically if a person has antibodies but has negative PCR can he get an Iqama?

  • HNAMA

    There is a big technical problem with GAMCA Elisa test for antibody +Ve. GAMCA centers have not PCR machine for HCV RNA test which can be used to confirm alive hepatitis C or B virus in the blood of a candidate.
    Authorities on human basis are requested to revisit this technical problem in GAMCA medical test report for family visa.

  • HNAMA

    Even family PCR positive she can get visa and she can get Iqama when arrive here. But problem is that Etimad centers are often reluctant to send passport to Embassy

  • GAMCA must have asked something else. You misunderstood it. They cannot ask for health insurance in Saudi Arabia.

  • kenneth

    hi steve,, my iqama has expired but my company deposited my money in the bank and I already have my exit visa.. can i present my exit visa document to withdraw my money, shall they accept this?

  • kanesh

  • HNAMA

    Dear Steve thanks for reply.
    I am talking about Etimad center not GAMCA.
    Yes, we misunderstood and misguided in first visit to Etimad center this month. In our second visit now they strongly advised us to bring husband health insurance card and a company letter.

  • farhan

  • HNAMA

    Yesterday I again sent my Faimily to Etimad center Lahore.
    No need for any additional medical certificate with GAMCA report.
    You should have to produce your health insurance card and a company letter to embassy with her passport.

  • HNAMA

    no need for medical certificate. It is fresh info

  • ZA

    Have you got your issue resolved? Did you go for surgery? Did GAMCA check your ear?

  • Chiko

    I have gone through medical tests through GAMCA recommended medical centre. All reports clear except anti-HCV. My anti-HCV came ‘false positive’ as It is on borderline (>1.0) and doctor at medical centre advised to repeat the same test after 20 days. Can anyone help or guide on how to get anti-HCV accepted values? Are there any tested medicines or home remedies and diet to adopt immediately? What is the possibility of getting ‘negative’ result after 20 days? Please guys, help me out. I desperately need some guidance. May Allah bless you for your sincere deeds! Please REPLY ANYONE..ITS URGENT 🙁

  • Chiko

  • Alexander Gr

    Hi, are these medicals required for a business trip, on a business visa?Thanks.

  • Chiko

    Dear Mustafa,
    Many thanks for your reply bro. Are you by any chance familiar with this anti-HCV solution? I am very confused and depressed now. My anti-HCV through Gamca’s medical centre is 1.09 however on very next day, lab report from private hospital (a very well known hospital) show i am ‘non-reactive’ on anti-HCV. I took both reports to private doctor for consultation. The doctor laughed and said that since i am not anti-HCV + at all, he cannot suggest any sort of treatment or medicine.

    I am literally very confused on this prob. I have to repeat the blood test at Gamca’s in next 2 week and still there is no one you can even tell if I would be able to get ‘fit’ report from Gamca on this anti-HCV problem.

    Brother Mustafa, May Allah give you Jaza, please help me out and reply as soon as possible if you can advice or help.

    I will be anxiously waiting!

  • mustafa

    If you have not affect then what treatment u wl take….Brother these people some time corrupted.. so go to your centre where you have done gamca test. And take one more labs test along with you . Go there and ask the main doctor with full confidence why it is coming and which technology u are using for the test let me know as i m not affected by result of these labs. Then they will tell you solution. And don’t give blood samples that time. Just listen what they say…BTW which location ur going for tests?…Is it through agent ?

  • Jahan

    I want ko ask a question. My relative has done medical test for permamnet work visa and got report of Fit as well. The medical centre wants him to bring E Number from Etimad then they would do the report online, Etimad office is asking some fees for it. While on the other way the result is appearing on this website http://lmra.bh/portal/en/gamca#gamca_tab
    So what is myth of E number and what is the right way to obtain it?

  • Anonymous

    hi Jahan

    Only Etimad can provide you the e-number

    What I heard is that you have to give this e number to Med Center and they upload your report against it.

    I have doubts as well. My wife got her medical report “FIT” today. She got the e-number from etimad and gave it to Med Center. The receptionist told her that they will update her report on coming Tuesday. I just checked her report on imra.bh and its available there. I guess there is some other protal as well where Med Centers are uploading Candidates reports and I believe only Embassy can retrieve the required reports from it

  • Jahan

    Thanks .
    After asking question here i kept searching. Then finally i found the answer. E number is in fact online visa application number . If someone has to come to ksa on permanent visa so before visa endorsement he has to apply online at Enjaz IT website and has to pay fee by credit card about 10.5 dollars or so. You can do it urself if u know arabic well as some things need ro type in arabic. Or u can take help of any agent like etimad. But Etimad costs a lot , now a days about 6500 rupees. I saw one agent website they charge 2000 rupees.
    I believe E number is a requirement for visa endorsement at saudi embassy not for making the report online. Seems there is some social pact berween Etimad n Medical centres who demand E number first. Two yeras ago when i did my medical they did not ask me E number and made it online normally. Since i came through overseas employees , they themselves did everything after i submitted medical to them.

  • Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback.

  • David Brecheisen

    Hi everybody, I would like to know about a particular STD. I have been treated for Syphilis in the past. I have taken all of the medication and have confirmation from the health department that I am free of the disease. Although I am disease free the antibodies will still show up in my blood when taking the test and it will read positive. I am wondering if a note saying that i am disease free will be sufficient.

  • Hi Akram, what happened after that? you had any success in getting a Saudi Visa?

  • Hi Habib, what was your experience of Saudi Medical test? were you successful?

  • jacob dee

    I am facing the same problem. i was also treated for syphilis 2-3 years back and my TPHA result will always be Positive / Reactive while my RPR will always be on 1:2 but NON- Reactive. Will i pass the medical test?

  • Saifullah Fida

    Hi Steve;I applied for family visa but when my wife was referred to one hospital by gamca pakistan office, she was diagnosed with HIV grey zone and viral load 3.8, that was a breathtaking moment as 7 months before she was perfect; however at confirmation from chugtai labs(a well known reputed lab) she was negative with ELISA immunoblot assay which was assure that result is negative and non reactive: however doctor said it happen due to usage of flu vaccines some antibodies are created which gives a false HIV positives and there is no need to worry, the antibodies will perhaps months or years to dissolve or perhaps a day…. But they no where relates with HIV…. She went back to the GAMCA reffered hospital and the doctor said they do simple elisa test where viral load is showing and they have to consider it positive…… Now issue is that all labs results are negative but only elisa at gamca referred hospitals are showing grey zone with viral load…… How to deal this case.
    Thank you
