After the Medical

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been asked and answered, I've searched through the forums and haven't found this specific question addressed. How long after the medical are you notified if there is a problem or they want more information? My fiance had his medical at the beginning of December and his interview is January 24th. He is worried that he will show up to the interview and be denied because of the medical. I keep telling him that he's being (understandably) anxious and that they would let him know ahead of time of any major issue but I realized that I don't actually know that and thought I'd ask the ever helpful denizens of VJ :)

I was told after my medical that if there are issues I would hear from them in a week or so. Nonetheless, I called the clinic to verify whether there are issues after a week and they just told me they can't discuss the result over the phone but assured me that since it had been sent to the embassy it should all be good. 

 

He'll be fine. Most experiences I've read here who had medical issues were informed and they have to correct it or to be under medication before they can actually proceed with interview or visa issuance. However those who get to be interviewed despite medical result is still pending get a call as well if its clear or not.  God bless your case.

Knightsbridge told me that if there were any issues they would contact me within a week. I never heard from them, ergo no issues with my medical.

 

They should have told your fiancé the same, but if it's been a month anyway, he's fine.

I specifically asked this at my medical and was told there were no issues on the day that they needed further information and pending results of the blood, urine and X-Ray, everything was good to go to the Embassy. Anyone who needs further referrals for anything else gets told on the day.  

 

Tell your fiancé to relax. I was really worried about my blood pressure as I have terrible white coat syndrome but actually it was fine on the day, in part due to the relaxed atmosphere at the clinic. The doctor did have some questions about my Diabetes but I came armed with information (print outs of recent test results etc) and she was happy with all that. I do feel as if I hadn't had that info, I would have had to get it before she would be satisfied. Had I needed any referrals or more information from my own GP, she would have told me there and then. If your fiancé does have an ongoing health condition or has ever had a serious illness or condition then I would advice he takes along as much information on it as he can. He may not be asked about it but if he is and can produce more details there and then, it will save time and worry. 

 

There's a lot of misinformation going around about the medical and some real horror stories at times but it is really absolutely fine. The staff are lovely and efficient and explain everything to you at every stage.

Yep, as long as your fiancee is syphilis and gonorrhea free; and nothing else was mentioned to him face to face, he will be good to go.

 

I, like most, was seemingly equally as anxious as your fiancee as the K1 process is such a life defining moment; but the doctors are not there to throw curve balls or trip you up. If there are any issues they will tell you directly, as opposed to fail you and let the embassy tell you.

 

He will be fine!

Thank you all so very much! They didn't mention anything at the time and there are no ongoing health concerns so it looks like I was right to tell him to relax. I really appreciate all of the support and amazing information I have received on these forums. Happy new year everyone :)
