Question on Medical for those using Montreal Consulate

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know I am a long way from having the medical done, but after reading different websites I just had a question. I noticed some places actually do not want the medical done till after you get your interview date, some can be done within the last year, and some are required to be done closer to the interview date, some have to be done by their recommended Dr's. Does anyone have any knowledge if Montreal has a standard rule for their medical?

I just figured I could get some things out of the way a couple months before. Thanks for the continued help guys! :star:

The rules are the same for everyone.

The medical must be done before your visa is issued. If the medical is scheduled after the interview date, they simply postpone issuance of the visa.

You must use a civil surgeon or overseas doctor approved by the US Government. You will receive a list of doctors.

The actual vaccinations and such are not really required until AOS after you are married but many beneficiaries wish to get them done in their home Country as they are sometimes covered by the health care programs in that Country. If you do this be sure to get a vaccination record signed so that you can use it to file at AOS.

The problem with getting the medical itself done too early is that the paperwork is sent from the Dr. directly to the Consulate and if they receive it before they receive your approved petition they wouldn't have a clue who you are. Not to mention that you can never be certain when the approval is coming. ;)

You will want to visit the Canada regional thread here for more advice on dealing with Montreal. That is where you will get the best answers regarding the remainder of the process.

You should really drop into the Canada Forum here on VJ Wis-Can! Here's the link:


Don't just look at the first page, there are lots of pages of questions about the immigration process from a Canadian perspective.

My understanding is that NOW, in Canada, Doctors are asking for your Package 3 letter. You won't have an interview date on that letter, you won't in fact until you send back your Package 3 sheet, but once you've been got your Package 3 checklist and letter, as long as you show that, you can book your medical.

The Canadian Forum is also a good place to read the Dr.'s medical reviews that we post.

Just another comment as well - in Canada the doctor does not send the information to the Consulate. They give it to you in a sealed envelope that you either pick up a few days/week later or they mail to you. Don't open that sealed envelope! You then hand-deliver it to the Consulate when you go for your interview appointment.
