To receive a certificate following your Better2Know test, simply notify our friendly Patient Services team upon booking your appointment.


Visa Applications & HIV

Many countries ask for evidence of a person’s HIV status in accordance with their visa entry requirements. This is the case with several nations in the Middle East, as well as most former Soviet states, including Russia. The list of countries where such certification is required is constantly changing, so it is always advisable to be aware of the respective nation’s regulations before you travel.

HIV travel restrictions were principally introduced in response to the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s. Whilst many countries, including China and the USA, have since relaxed their restrictions, plenty of countries still maintain a complete ban on residency for people with HIV. In addition, many individuals will need visas for reasons relating to their profession. These may include oil, gas and off shore workers, certain security personnel and even some sports people, such as boxers.


HIV Certification & Better2Know

Better2Know delivers fast, accurate testing for HIV, with certification made available swiftly and efficiently to those who need it. For companies or organisations that would like testing for multiple employees, corporate billing can also be arranged. Certificates will only be granted once your test results are known. With an HIV test, this is usually within one to three working days from the receipt of your sample at our fully accredited laboratory, depending on which HIV test you select.

Alternatively, certificates can also be provided following an HIV Instant test. With this popular testing option you will be given your results within 30 minutes. Once your status is known, you will receive immediate certification without having to leave the clinic.
