Visa expiration date based on last sputum date!

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had read the K1 visa expiration date is based on six months from the date of the last sputum sample date when in the St Luke's DOTS program. I had thought is was six months from St Luke's final remed passed date versus six months from the date of the last negative sputum sample taken date.

For those who went through DOTS can you check if the visa expiration date indicates six months from the last sputum date regardless of the embassy visa approval date.

Thanks in advance!

If memory serves, when you complete DOTS and the 2nd medical you have a maximum of 90 DAYS of validity for your visa. 6 months does not apply in cases where DOTS was completed.

After TB DOTS is complete the SLEC medical exam is valid for 90 days from the date the last culture result is reported as negative.

 

 

Verified in her K1 interview and her visa expiration matched it to the day.  Exactly 90 days from her last culture result.
