Number of days between SLEC Medical and USEM interview

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJers, I cant seem to get updated info on the minimum/maximum number of days between the SLEC Medical Exam and the USEM Interview date.

Is it alright to do the medical exams around 16-20 days before the interview? I've been sleepless and anxious for the past few days from thinking about the TB stories I've read online, and I'd like to shorten my wait before it affects my wellbeing lol

Thank you so much in advance and God bless everyone. :)

This was answered a day or so ago. If you missed the threads with your same topic you can read them here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/555755-medical-exam-before-interview/ and here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/555788-medical-exam-prior-to-interview-at-usem/

The answer is that the Embassy states AT LEAST 5-7 days before the interview but you can do it at anytime. But here is the catch... your visa is tied to a date to establish the validity of the visa. Meaning the visa is valid for only six months from the medical date and that establishes when you have to be on US soil before it expires.

The date that has been selected by USEM is the day you pass your medical. So, from that date forward six months will determine the validity of your visa.

So, the more time you put in front of your medical the less time you have after receiving your visa that you have to enter the US. For some, this is not an issue but for others it maybe.

If you have TB then it changes everything. Now you are facing a 6-8 month and possibly longer (each case is different and no one can tell you exactly what you can expect) to go through treatment, be certified cured and having your interview.

If you do not have any of these symptoms I would proceed with your medical 5-7 days from your interview date.

Signs and symptoms of active TB include:

•Coughing that lasts three or more weeks.

•Coughing up blood.

•Chest pain, or pain with breathing or coughing.

•Unintentional weight loss.

•Fatigue.

•Fever.

•Night sweats.

•Chills
