I just need  more information about Hepatitis B... Hep B is specifically tested for certain occupations (but for most people
its just HIV)

My husband had the same case. What we did was we provided the DMP with my husband's lab results, abdominal xrays, and certification from his hepa consultant that his hepa B is "inactive" and non-communicable. I think it will depend on the SGPT/SGOT result of your lab, if its normal, hepa B carrier will pass the med test.

Actually, CIC looked more on his previous TB history, though it was inactive. My baby and I had no issue eith health. But my husband was requested for a sputum test and before/after sputum test xray. This has caused us delay of 8 weeks for the sputum test result.

We got our visa yesterday, apr 21. But, there was an attached medical surveillance form on his COPR probably because of the TB history.

 @ crazy25. as per medical letter. you need to provide immunization record. did u declare when u did medical that u hve hepa b? what did the doctor said and cic said? did you provide any medical records? so it means that cic is not that strict.

hello! I am from Philippines. I just would to ask about health problems. My brother is in toronto now as a skilled worker. His visa is Worker. He wanted to transfer from his present job to other but he is hepatitis b reactive, a healthy one. He is worried about it. He has hesitations to apply for a new job because there might be medical exams to be pass. Is canada very strict about it? Can he find a job there where he will not be discriminated with his situation? I really badly need your help.. Looking forward for your response. Thank you so much!
