Medical Tests in CHSC:

Capital Health Screening Centre is a well-organized medical center in Abu Dhabi. The center maintains hygiene with international standards. Several required check-ups are operational along with chest X-rays and other blood tests as well. However, a chest x-ray helps to diagnose diseases like Tuberculosis (TB). On the other hand, the blood test is performed to check any transmissible diseases such as Aids, Hepatitis A, B, or C. 

Those who have a scar of TB are not allowed to get a stamp on their visa. Similarly, applicants who got positive results in their blood tests are deported from Abu Dhabi.
