My fiance will soon go to his Medical Examination. I was wondering what do they look for? Like what type of illnesses? What can happen at the medical examination that could make him get his visa denied......? :unsure:

I don't know what would get a visa application denied but they do look for communicable diseases,also series diseases such as cancers, diabetes, heart problems, interal problems etc. They give you a chest xray to check for tuberculosis and other respiratory issues, they do blood work. Apparenntly they are no longer screening for HIV/AIDS but I think they check for syphillis etc. You could inquire further and may get the information you want from NVC or the medical clinics.

The medical is really a general physical examination.

Pretty much what Zenaxe stated already. Think of it as your basic wellness exam. They will do blood work and chest X-rays. If he has a vaccination record, he should show up at the appointment with it. If there are any vaccinations that the medical reviewer deems necessary, they'll be given.

Typically, the medical portion is one of the least troublesome steps in the visa process. I'm not saying that denials haven't happened because of the medical results, but if he is healthy he should have nothing to worry about.

If you haven't already done so, check with the Consular section in his country to see how the results are submitted. We recevied instructions in our IV Packet that we were supposed to mail the sealed envelope to the Consular prior to the interview. When she went for her medical exam, however, the doctor said that it was standard procedure to forward them directly from the medical office. They did give Lizeth a copy of the vaccines that she received as well as the chest x-ray.

In the event the medical examiner does provide him with the sealed results, make certain he knows that he's not to open it!
