Scheduling The Medical Examination

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello you all!

I'm sure the answer to my question is somewhere in this forum but so far all I've read just confused me even more.
Our K1 petition is currently at the NVC. In order to be prepared, I have been gathering all required documents that I will need for the next step of this process. I found a checklist online from my consulate in Germany. It states to schedule the medical examination as soon as possible to avoid any delays. But when you continue reading it says to wait for a letter from the consulate with further instructions for the medical.

Should I wait until they tell me to schedule an appointment? Or do you think I can go ahead and schedule an appointment without their okay?
From what I've read, others have advised to do the medical ahead of time so that the results will be at the consulate by the time I go in for my interview.

Thanks for your help!!

The letter is "packet 3". It's merely an email from the Consulate, generated when they receive your Case from NVC. You can schedule the Medical without it, but you'll need your Case #, which you can get by calling NVC. Also, you get to schedule your own Interview, so there is no problem in waiting to schedule it until after you believe the Consulate received the medical results from the Doctor.

I just replied to your previous question in my post about the medical in Frankfurt. Do not wait until they "instruct" you to do the medical - they wont! Once you receive package 3, go ahead and do the medical!


NOA 1: 08/26/2014

NOA 2: 03/23/2014 --> 7 months wait (Texas Service Center)

Thanks Verenaaa!

I just read your post about TB. I can't give you any advise, simply because I have no clue. But I hope everything goes well for you!!
