Tuberculosis Test

Dear Parents and Guardians,  


We are very much looking forward to welcoming your child to ICSV. New students who arrive in Austria less than six months prior to their school start date are required to submit the results of a tuberculosis (TB) test. The test result has to be stamped and signed by a health authority or doctor, translated into either English or German, and cannot be older than 6 weeks at the time your child starts classes at ICSV.    
Since this process can take several weeks, it is important to plan accordingly as your child can not start classes until the school has received results to confirm that your child does not have tuberculosis. There are several tests methods available.  

Options for you to choose from:

Note: Children who have been immunized for tuberculosis will most likely show a false positive with a skin test and then are required to have a follow-up chest x-ray. A negative test
result is required to start school.

 


  • Chest X-ray
  • Skin Test (Mendel Mantoux-test)
  • Physicians check (please request doctors referral form from the Admissions Office)
The test may be done prior to arriving in Austria if less than 6 weeks before the student’s start date. Otherwise, it may be completed after arriving in Austria. For your convenience, Vienna clinics providing TB tests are listed on the back of this letter.  

Results should be submitted to the Admission’s Office by email (admissions@icsv.at) or in person prior to your start date.  

It is our school’s utmost priority to ensure the safety of all children in our international community.  

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.  

Sincerely,

Sharon Brobst, Ed.D.
Director
