:( Hello,

I hope someone can help me on what issue I am going through since last Friday (09/22/06)& I'm kind of little stressed.

I'm in the US & my Fiance Visa Petition got approved from CA Center & My Fiance has even recieved his packet 3& packet 4 information from the embassy of India, New Delhi.

On friday when he got his Medical Examination done - the doctor told him that his X-Ray is showing a spot due to his too much of smoking habbit & he has high blodd pressure as well.

My biggest concern nw is will the consular will consider these symptons seriously & can possibly DENY him in granting a VISA.

Some one plz reply me back because he has an interview scheduled in the first week of October 2006.

Any advices are welcomed.

thanks

I would not be concerned. Denial based on medical issues are due to contagious diseases that could be brought into the US.

Section 212(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act reads:

(a) Classes of Aliens Ineligible for Visas or Admission.-Except as otherwise provided in this Act, aliens who are inadmissible under the following paragraphs are ineligible to receive visas and ineligible to be admitted to the United States:

(1) Health-related grounds.-

(A) In general.-Any alien-

(i) who is determined (in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services) to have a communicable disease of public health significance, which shall include infection with the etiologic agent for acquired immune deficiency syndrome,

(ii) except as provided in subparagraph © who seeks admission as an immigrant, or who seeks adjustment of status to the status of an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence, and who has failed to present documentation of having received vaccination against vaccine-preventable diseases, which shall include at least the following diseases: mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, influenza type B and hepatitis B, and any other vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices,

(iii) who is determined (in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services in consultation with the Attorney General)-

(I) to have a physical or mental disorder and behavior associated with the disorder that may pose, or has posed, a threat to the property, safety, or welfare of the alien or others, or

(II) to have had a physical or mental disorder and a history of behavior associated with the disorder, which behavior has posed a threat to the property, safety, or welfare of the alien or others and which behavior is likely to recur or to lead to other harmful behavior, or

...High blood pressure is a health concern, but it is not on the list of medical conditions that would result in a denial.

To reiterate: if it were, how would anyone successfully complete (whether through AOS or consular) the immigration process?

Umm, because not everyone has high blood pressure. LOL! Maybe cut back on those energy drinks. :P

Hi There

I also failed my Medical (In London) for having high blood pressure.

I was told by the embassy Doctor that she would 'hold back' my medical report until my blood pressure was under control.

I then had to go to my own Doctor and start treatment - and my Doctor then Faxed the embassy stating that i was OK. It only delayed me about 3 weeks - although it was very frustrating at the time! :angry:

Your fiance should be able to ask the Doctor directly if he was approved or not.

Best Wishes.

The health issues might also play into the financial support issue. Can you show that he would be put on your medical insurance, with pre-existing conditions covered? If not, then I'd research to find out if this could impact the financial support question. This could be another reason that treatment first would be good - to show that it is unlikely to become a financial drain.
