I dont know if it will affect her visa but its one of the things they look for during physical exam. They check for hemorrhoids, genital warts, evidence of delivery etc etc.
Regarding your discussions about medical exam. you mention about hemorrhoids if somebody has that could it be the grounds for medical failures?thanks for future replies.
They may EXAMINE for evidence of birth, hemmorhoids, and genital warts but i don't THINK that ANY of these are grounds for visa denial. Especially birth and hemorrhoids. BUT, if you say for example you have never given birth, and they see evidence of giving birth, then that may raise some questions in their mind... see?? The big problem that causes all of the extra review and very close scrutiny of all of the applicants here in Phils is the high rate of attempted marriage and visa fraud. The Medical examiners and Consular Officers are trained and CONDITIONED to look for attempted fraud in applicants. So, what may be innocent may be INTERPRETED as attempted fraud and could cause a problem. The story of the CO who thought the VJ was trying to bribe her because the son took money from the purse and put it in the window slot is an excellent example of this. The CO ASSUMED the worst even though it was completely innocent. But, giving birth, having hemorrhoids, and having HPV are NOT reasons to deny visa in and of themselves ACCORDING TO THE RULES THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW. Now, the reason they EXAMINE for Hemmorrhoids and lesions in that general area of the body is that at least two of the 8 diseases show symptoms in the genital or anal area. So, they check those areas of the body and if they see something, they have to determine is this just hemmorrhoids or a pimple or an ingrown shaved hair or a bug bite, or is it really an indication of one of the problem diseases?
The criteria that are listed by me and another in different posts in this thread are the RULES that the Consular Officers must use to determine eiligibility. I know that I always feel better about these kind of things after i review the rules and then research as much as i can using google or your favorite search engine.
Good Luck and God Bless.
