Fees for TB screening for IND


As of 3 July 2023, immigrants need to pay €50 for their first TB screening at the local health service (GGD). You can pay with a debit card, but not with cash or a credit card. Further research is still free of charge.

When applying for a residence permit in the Netherlands through the IND, nationals of lots of countries will be asked to have a Tuberculosis (TB) check upon arrival in the Netherlands. Exceptions can be found here. You can complete the Tuberculosis check after applying for your residence permit (in the Netherlands). If this is the case, you will have to indicate this to the IND when you apply. Once your permit has been approved, you have three months from your arrival to have a TB check.

How do I arrange a check?

Call the Municipal Health Services (GGD Haaglanden) at +31 (0)70 353 71 69 to schedule your check.
