All of us know that we have to go through the medical test before applying for the first iqama. Now you can easily check the status of the medical test report online for Saudi Iqama through Efada Saudi Arabia website. This system is similar to GCCHMC medical status for Gulf Health Council.
Medical test for Saudi Iqama
You will have to visit an approved medical center along with your original passport. Although you have already been medically tested before coming to Saudi Arabia, Saudi authorities test you again. The fee for the medical test for Saudi Iqama is SR 200/-.
The test includes an HIV/AIDS test, TB Xray, eyesight, and hearing test, a test for cholera (a charming stool sample test). Since it is a stool test, so you need to be ready for this. I had to face the problem in passing the stool at examination center because I did not know about it. Children do not have to go through the medical test to apply for the first Saudi Iqama.
The doctor will just make a pediatric checkup and measure height and weight. There is no need of medical test or vaccination certificates.
You can pick the medical report from the center as a documentary proof after two days of the test, although there is no need to it as it is updated in Efada Saudi Arabia and MOH portal online. Efada Saudi Arabia is similar to GCCHMC medical status report for Gulf Health Council.
