No vaccinations are required for the K3 visa but you will need your vaccination records and any needed vaccinations in order to adjust status later. So, if you have no records, it might be less expensive to get the vaccinations in your home country. Up to you.

Hmmm, I'll have to check for sure but in Canada, for the K3 they request the medical & required vaccinations - as per the panel physician's judgement...

The list is here bosanskasnaha...

You're welcome! This is the blurp from the Consulate's website in Vancouver Canada:

"When a fiancé(e)/spouse enters the United States in K status, she/he must have with them their passport containing the visa, the sealed packet of documents provided to them by the Consulate at the time of the visa interview, and the chest x-ray provided to them at the time of the medical examination."

Best to check with your Consulate as things seem to be changing all the time...can't keep up! Good luck!

The link is to requirements for an immigrant visa. K3 is non-immigrant visa. The list can be helpful because those are the required vaccination for, in the OP's case, AOS, not the visa. This is not Country specific. Non-immigrant is non-immigrant is non-immigrant.

Hi!! I believe the vaccines the doctors require are specific to the age, gender and possibly country of origin... So what applies to me may not apply to you.

But if it helps, I called the doctor registered in the American consulate in Brazil asking about that. She said that in my case (female - Brazilian - 23 years old), I need to take: tetanus, diphtheria, rubella, measles, mumps, chicken pox (varicella, which I already had when I was little so I don´t need it anymore). Ah! She also said that I need to take a vaccine against HPV (i think it´s only for women under 26). Since the HPV is 3 doses (each one after a few months from the last), she said I should take the 1st dose now, and the rest in the US. So I guess when I do AOS, they will check if I got the 3 of them.

I don´t know if vaccines are not really required for k3s as pushbrk is saying. But all brazilians applying for k3, when they go to the doctor before the interview, they are required to take the vaccines. So, You should really call the doctor the consulate in your country suggests.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
