Frequently Asked Questions

What is a HIV test certificate?

A HIV Test Certificate is sometimes requested by organisations seeking confirmation of your (often negative) HIV status.

Along with your result, the certificate will confirm the following:

  • Your name
  • Your passport number, date of birth and the date your passport was issued
  • Your Unique ID Number
  • Details of when your sample was collected

This document can be used for official purposes, including:

  • Long term travel visas
  • Work visas (esp. when your job may expose you to blood)
  • Resident permits

Can I get a HIV certificate for a home test?

Unfortunately, without being able to verify your identity we cannot provide you a certificate of your test results.

If my HIV test result is positive, will I fail to get a visa?

This depends very much on the country.

Some countries are extremely strict with the implications (e.g. Russia and UAE) where expulsion/denial of entry are likely. Other countries may request further medical examination before confirming the implications.

How long does it take to get a HIV certificate for my work/visa application?

You will be able to receive your results in 30 minutes, after we have collected your sample.

What jobs do you need a HIV test certificate for?

Typically, jobs which may expose you to blood may require a certificate. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Oil
  • Gas and offshore workers
  • Security personnel
  • Sports coaches/players
  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Teachers
  • Chefs
  • Hairdressers

Some of these roles may even request a Hepatitis B & C test in addition to a HIV test.

We emphasise confirming with the countries’ embassy/your employer before booking your appointment.

Will I require a HIV certificate for a holiday?

It is unlikely that you will require a HIV test certificate for a short holiday. Typically, a certificate is needed for seeking a work or residence visa.

However, in some countries you may be prohibited entry/deported if they find out that you are HIV positive.
