What is the "Checklist" for Vancouver medical?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My interview is on March 9 and I received notice of my date from NVC only last week so I'm rushing around dealing with updating my vaccinations and such. Today I went online to book my physical here in Vancouver and I read through the list of required documents I need to bring with me. This one confuses me: VANCOUVER APPLICANTS: You must have received your checklist before we can schedule your appointment.

What checklist are they referring to? They are NOT referring to the the confirmation letter because it says this for Montreal applicants: MONTREAL APPLICANTS: You must have received CONFIRMATION of your interview date before we are allowed to schedule your appointment.

Any Vancouver CR1s out there who can fill me in as to this mysterious "checklist"?

Thank you

Since it says "Vancouver Applicants" I can only assume it means the Packet 3 for K-1 visas. When I did my medical, they required the interview letter fro NVC

Good luck

Why not phone them and ask..perhaps they have a checklist to ensure you bring the necessary items to the Medical?

No, it can't be that. I'm going for a CR1 visa. The medical is here in Vancouver, the interview in Montreal.

That usually means your interview letter. Also, I believe they email you a checklist of what to bring with you when you book your medical online.

Call them and see though. If you are going for a CR-1, usually your interiew letter is all thats required.


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

This is how I interpret it: You are not a Vancouver applicant, you're a Montreal applicant, so that wouldn't apply to you. If someone is a Vancouver applicant, than they are a K-1 by default, and K-1's can book their medicals with their Packet 3 checklist. CR-1 applicants (as you know) need to wait until they receive their interview confirmation.

That's what it sounds like to me, but calling to confirm may not be a bad idea.

I can't believe how stupid I am! You're absolutely right--I may be in Vancouver but I'm considered a Montreal applicant because I will be having my interview in Montreal. I just figured this out five minutes ago and came online to let everyone know my mistake. Thanks, Hugglebuggles, for responding.

I believe the checklist is the one in packet 3?? The one you return to the consulate... for Van anyway. Montreal may or may not work similarly. They require that you have a case number from the consulate in order to process you for the medical at woking medical clinic. At most consulates, your packet 3 would be mailed to you (with the checklist). At Van, it is downloadable. You can find this checklist on the Vancouver consulate page on VJ. This might explain more. Make sure you bring your letter with your name and case number on it to the medical or they will NOT process you. If you searching 'Woking'on VJ you will get information regarding the medical. Also be aware that the vaccines required can change at anytime, so keep checking back to ensure you have everything needed. (I noticed a change from a couple of weeks ago even...).

Good luck :)
