Medical Checks for Working Abroad
Obtaining an international work visa often requires specific medical checks. For instance, some countries mandate proof of vaccinations as part of their visa criteria. Others, such as Saudi Arabia, require an assessment of the applicant’s overall health and certification they are free from infectious diseases.
At the Mariners Medical Clinic, we offer many medical checks that are required to apply for international visas. From medical assessments to diagnostics (labs, X-rays, ultrasound, CT scans, MRIs) and vaccinations, our clinic provides all the required services in one place. With convenient same or next-day scheduling, we aim to get you one step closer to your job abroad.
