Chinese Medical Exam

If you are going live in China for more than one year you must submit for a medical exam. They did the following tests:


Eye exam

Ultrasound of liver/stomach?

Blood draw

Blood pressure

Chest X-ray

Health questionnaire


I asked several people about the purpose of these tests; and got a variety of answers. It would make sense to look for communicable diseases, such as HIV and tuberculosis.

I am not sure I passed the eye exam, but I won’t be driving so perhaps it doesn’t matter.

What are they looking for?
