Depending on what visa you have, more than likely you will need to go for a health check. Outlined in this article is information on how to make the whole process a little easier.
The health check is pretty straightforward and can be done in around 20-30 minutes if it’s not too busy. If you need your results back on the same day, you will need to pay an extra 81 yuan otherwise you could be waiting up to a week for your results.
Go into this building, here you will register. The staff can speak a little English. Once registered you will be handed a piece of paper and from here you will need to visit all of the doctors at the health check centre.
The health check can only be done in the morning from 0800hrs – 1130hrs and you shouldn’t eat beforehand.
Checks to be done: blood test, urine sample, ECG/ultrasound, eyesight/colourblind test, height, weight, blood pressure and an X-ray which is in the building outside.
You will need:
- Two passport style photos
- Work permit card
- Photocopy of passport photo and visa page
- Photocopy of your last date of entry into China (this is the red stamp in your passport)
- A mobile phone number
The medical test is free if you also take along your work permit card, without it at the time of publishing this article the test was around 450 yuan.
Tip: If there is a long queue for one of the tests we suggest going for the x-ray first and coming back when it’s done. Usually, the x-ray is the last and slowest test, especially if there are many people waiting. Also, Friday is usually their busiest day.
