it might. you should search here for TB-related posts.

be sure to include your medical reports stating why, how it occurred and when it was resolved...

how to proceed,means i heard that in medical centers they will take chest xray and ask us to come after two days to collect medical form saying we are fit or not.to whom we should tell our medical history.

i mean, you'd have to submit all your paperwork to the authorities for vetting/consideration right?

the radiologist will only note on the report what he/she observes from the film/image, nothing more.

they cannot report whether or not you're gonna be a major health risk in singapore, so don't worry too much about that!

if you can afford it, go to your own doctor with that report and x-ray (please don't bring small films) and have him write you a letter.

finally, include that physician's letter (or previous report) with the application you're gonna send away for your visa.

that's what i'd do. good luck!
