medical examination

Greetings Everyone,

I am new to this forum. I would like to say that going through this site has been an eye-opener for me.

Anyways, ive read the previous topics about the medical examination that will be conducted for people planning on migrating to the United States and ive also read the PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES text which states: (B) Communicable disease of public health significance. Any of the

following diseases:

(1) Chancroid.

(2) Gonorrhea.

(3) Granuloma inguinale.

(4) Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

(5) Leprosy, infectious.

(6) Lymphogranuloma venereum.

(7) Syphilis, infectious stage.

(8) Tuberculosis, active.

It does not mention hepatitis b which is a communicable disease. My concern is for my filipina wife who contracted the disease through blood transfusion in the early 90s. Will this in anyway affect her in obtaining a k3 visa?

thanks

cordially

stephen low

It will not affect her visa. My sister-in-law had it in 1993 and she's here. I'm not sure if she told the doctor though. Will they know? :)

I believe they will be testing for the HBV B. Not really sure. But thanks for the reply :thumbs:

Not sure if requirements differ between countries but in Canada this is what they state. Good luck.

Blood Test:

Applicants 15 years and older will have blood taken to test for the presence of HIV and syphilis.

If you have ever been diagnosed with syphilis, HIV, AIDS or any other sexually transmitted disease, please bring a report from a physician or health department outlining the treatment you received. In the event that your blood test is positive for HIV or syphilis your name will be forwarded to the appropriate public health authority as required by law.

I wonder what other reports do they mean? Do you seriously have to take every paper with you if you have been previously or many years ago tested for STD's or something?
