Scheduling the Medical at St. Lukes Manila Philippines

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got my manil case number and email from the NVC regarding choice of agent. Was told by the operator at St. Luke's medical that all they needed from me to get a Medical was to pay the fee, photos, and an email with the case no. Will I be able to go for my medical with just that email? or is there another email specifically for instructions to proceed to St. Luke's? Its valid for 1 year anyway, so I thought the sooner I go, the better...

VJ members from Manila... help please...Thanks

The US embassy manila says that the medical is good for 6 months, yet one of or friends we met at the Philippines CFO (Philippines required seminar to exit country) had a lung problem that showed on her Medical exam x-ray and had to have that problem in remission before being granted visa to USA. She took her required medicine for the 6 weeks and it was then clear but now they are telling her she needs a new exam and has to pay again for the exam because it’s older than three months.

Here is the link about 6 months http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3218.html, and here is the link for contacting is email or phone the Manila US Embassy, http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Philippines&cty=Manila

If you think your interview is within the next 3 months and will have no other problems I would get the Medical if not it can be done after the interview, but that delays things and creates extra steps.

Bets of luck to you.

Take your NOA,email with case number or what ever document you have to St. Lukes and take your medical, members with experience will tell you the 'sonner the better'.

All visa applicants, regardless of age, need to complete a medical examination at the St. Luke's Medical Center Extension Clinic (SLMCEC) before the visa interview. Applicants are advised to have their medical examinations done at least one week before their interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy in Manila.

What is the cost of the medical examination at SLMCEC?

The medical exam fee is U.S. $213.35 for adults (15 years and older) and U.S. $185.35 for children (under 15 years of age).

SLMCEC does not accept credit card or dollar payments. The fees must be paid in Philippine pesos at the prevailing exchange rate.

What is the validity of the medical examination?

Medical examinations are generally valid for 6 months.

Will chest x-rays be required?

Children younger than 15 years old will not need a chest X-ray or serological test unless required by the doctor, but will instead undergo a Tuberculin Skin Test.

According to the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), chest X-rays for pregnant women are not dangerous if taken with the proper shielding.

If you have had previous X-rays, please bring them along for a comparative study.

What should I bring to my medical examination?

Appointment letter sent by the National Visa Center or an e-mail print out of your appointment sent by the Call Center or any NOA the appointment date shown on our website ()

Appropriate medical examination fee.

Passport (valid for at least 6 months)

Two colored pictures (2 inches x 2 inches) with a white background

What happens after I have my medical examination?

The medical report, passport and visa pictures are normally submitted by SLMCEC to the U.S. Embassy in Manila. In most cases, only the chest x-ray film and immunization form are given to the applicants in the SLMCEC releasing section.

The medical examination usually takes two to three working days to process, but can extend up to a few months if there are required tests that need to be completed.
