Very often TB heals by leaving a scar tissue ib the lungs. Since you do not have any symptoms, have taken complete treatment and a doctor has already issued a certificate of fitness to you, i don`nt think there should be any problem. A the most they may ask you to undergo some more tests like a sputum test and a CT Chest and you may be examined by the doctor deputed by their embassy.
