MEDICAL GRADUATES SEEKING TO TAKE THE PLAB TEST VISA UK

The UK Government recognises that medical graduates from abroad may wish to practice in the UK . These graduates must register with the General Medical Council (GMC) before they can practice medicine in the UK. In order to register with the GMC doctors must first pass the Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) test which has two parts. Doctors who pass this test may be able to then apply to stay in the UK to undertake a period of clinical attachment.

The Free Medical Graduates seeking to take the PLAB Test visa Eligibility Assessment is designed to instantly determine if you are eligible to apply for a UK Visitors visa. It uses criteria set by the UK Border Agency and is the most comprehensive and technologically advanced online Migration Assessment tool available.
