Hey Everyone

Does anyone have any recent reports on what AIDS test is required in Helsinki?

A couple of years ago the problem of the Helsinki embassy only taking tests from clinics in Finlan surfaced, then it was revealed that they take tests from Russian clinics if they are from 'approved' clinics, or something like that. I got my visa last October (2006) with a test from Sklifosovskogo Hospital off of Prospect Mira with no problem.

However, according to this post made just last June (http://www.expat.ru/forum/obtaining-visa-russian-federation/26468-hiv-test-visa-where.html#post265458), the Helsinki Embassy embassy is only taking tests in Finland now, again(?). Does anyone have any recent news on this front?
