Hi Shiron,
Thanks for writing us,
Look the post-TB scar are hard to remove.
But if you may not have active TB now although scar may be persisting.
For that you have to have a recent sputum for acid-fast bacilli.
If that report is negative on two occassions then you dont have TB now.
Also you have to produce your previous treatment outcome report...if the word "CURE" is mentioned there then no problem.
If you produce those two reports to them i think it will be accepted there.
I think you got my point.
Thank you,
Wish you good luck
