CDJ Waivers

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if there are anymore on here or not that have filed waivers. There used to be a whole bunch of us but we all got approved and the thread we had kinda died. It's around here somewhere. Maybe someone will come along soon that has filed a waiver. Sorry I couldn't help you out any on your question.

Let me begin by saying, I am extremely paranoid and prepare for a laugh when reading this post. :lol:

I applied for a K1 visa for my fiance from Mexico.

I decided to post on this particular topic forum because I am already worried that my fiance may need a waiver. I am worried he may end up having tuberculosis. The reason I say this is because I know a handful of people (either in Mexico-my own family members or friends) who were all born in Mexico and have all tested positive for a tb test and have all needed to get chest x-rays done etc (none of this are applying for a visa or anything). I am just worried cause I notice this strange trend with people from Mexico all receiving positive tb test readings. I am just really scared and wouldn't want my fiance to be denied at the interview for having this. I have no idea if he has it or not, like I said I am extremely paranoid.

A question I have: what can my fiance do to determine if he has active tuberculosis? If he takes a tb skin test and the results are positive, does this mean he may have it and should take a chest x-ray? I want him to go to his own doctor before his interview just in case to find out. If he were to have it, I believe I would file an I-601 waiver, right? I just couldn't be able to risk a chance for denial for him or having to file a waiver which will postpone his arrival in the U.S. since he would have to make another trip to CDJ for another interview.

WHat do you guys think? Try to bare with my paranoia. My fiance says this whole process is driving me crazy and I'm starting to believe it may be. :yes:

1st off...Relax. :) This is going to be a painful ride, but perfect in the end. It will make you guys stronger. You are here on JV and we all are in (or have been) in the same boat. You are free to vent, comment, laugh, and cry. We will support you 100%.

Now...about TB. The US Embassy will require their own medical team to do a TB test on your guy. If it is negative then there will be no problem. If it is positive then that isn't a problem either (relatively speaking, of course. TB is VERY serious). The doctor will prescribe medicine that SHOULD clear everything up. Then at the end of treatment he will go back to the US Embassy doctor to make sure he is all clear. Once the doctor clears him you two are free to go to the interview. In Ukraine (where TB is relatively common as well) the doctors did a chest x-ray no matter what. I am not sure if that is the case with all embassies, although I suspect it is.

Yes cutie - this process is getting the best of you. Do you have any reason to even suspect that your fiance has TB? Does he have symptoms? To each your mind, perhaps he can go for a physical with his local doctor before his medical in CDJ.

Thanks Joel for the quick response

I know the U.S. Embassy in Mexico (CDJ) will require their own medical, I know I can't do anything about that. I just wanted to know if he actually went to his personal doctor and the results were positive, if he could start taking medicine and then present proof of this exam and the medicine he was taking to the U.S. embassy in Mexico. Would this be considered valid so that he can come immediately after (I mean if he's approved).?

It would not be a bad idea. Make sure he is clear. Then the Embassy doctors will STILL do their own test. It should STILL come out clean. Go for it! Better safe the sorry. With this process it is better to be over prepared then under. :)

kitkat,

I know I need to relax, that's what my fiance tells me. No I don't have any reasons to suspect that he has TB he hasn't shown any symptoms, I am just going a bit insane here. Yeah, I will definately have him go see his personal doctor before he takes off to CDJ. You know something even funnier, the I-129F hasn't even been approved yet, no NOA2 yet and I'm already freaking out! :D
