    @Nat based on my experience often nag popositive sa IGRA test ang mga bata kasi according to one nurse who had shared here, usually may injection ang bata na BCG vaccine pagkapanganak and hindi ito agad nasusundan ng tuberculin injection as 'di na usual practice ng mga pediatricians. Kaya expect na kapag nag test, mag fafalse positive ang bata and would require another xray test conducted days after. Kami kasi ininformed ng St. Lukes at nadelay ang submission nya as sya na lang ang hindi pa nasusubmit sa DIBP (7-14 days pa cycle time to submit). Lahat kami cleared na.

    Hi @Nat I think if nagstay ka sa Japan ng at least one year, you have to still get a police certificate. Dependent din ako ng husband ko but I still applied for Singapore police clearance.
