Medical Exam/Infant Passport

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello - I was wondering if anyone had any experience with get the medical exam completed while the application is still with USCIS. My fiancé lives very far from the Embassy in Jakarta and we are trying to limit her trips there. I know there is only one place the exams can be done, but wondered if she could get it done while we are in Jakarta in June. I believe the results are good for 6 months so we are gambling in hope she will have her interview before December.

2nd Question - Anyone have any experience getting US Passport for a child born in Indonesia? My fiancé is currently pregnant with our first child and is due September 5th. How does the process work in getting the passport? I have gone to the embassy website and it looks like it could take a total of 4 weeks to get one.

Please feel free to comment with any experience you have had with one or both of these situations.

Thanks!
Chris

Welcome to the forum, Chris.

1. As you infer, K-1 visas are typically good for use only for a 6-month period after the medical examination. The examination is typically done rather close in time to the scheduled consular interview. You'd certainly not be able to schedule the examination before your petition has left USCIS, and even if you were successful in this, you'd risk having to schedule and pay for another exam, closer to the actual interview time.

2. Look through this subforum:

Sympathies in regard to your fiancee's long travel distances. Later in the process (assuming petition approval and granting of the visa), biometrics (capture of fingerprints) will be necessary. Fellow VJ members have had to travel for hours within the U.S. or have even had to take two full days off work to fulfill a 5-minute requirement. Perhaps you'll enjoy a convenient distance at those later stages to balance the long trek to Jakarta now.

1. Unfortunately the med clinic will not allow you to schedule an appointment before you have your NVC case #.

2. I don't know the process, but you should check to see if it will have to be done through the embassy in Jakarta or the consulate in Surabaya, which covers the following parts of Indonesia: Bali, East Java, Sulawesi, West Timor, Nusa Tenggara Barat and Nusa Tenggara Timur, and the Malukus. That is for US citizen services...
