The first mission of the immigration medical service is to organise medical checks for foreigners (non E.U) requesting a residence permit in Luxembourg. Those who request a residence permit have to undergo a medical examination and TB screening. The tests must be carried out by a GP, a doctor specializing in internal medicine or a pediatrician.
The TB screening, however, is only done by the Ligue médico-sociale.
This procedure is applied to all non EU citizens or assimilated countries (Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Lichtenstein).
