Think I've lost the chest X-ray from medical and they want it at PoE!

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me, at no point did anyone tell me I needed to keep the chest X-ray CDR I was given at the embassy, it looks like I have left it at my friend's house who I stayed with in London but given all the things I've accidentally left there before that he's not been able to locate I am now more than a bit concerned. I got the letter with my visa and it says I should be prepared to hand it over at PoE! At the embassy the rather jovial official just told me I might want to see it for my peace of mind, not that I needed to keep it! Really worried now. And I haven't even looked at it, just thought it was an extra I was given! :(

Chest X-ray is NEVER asked for at POE - what would they do with it, they're not doctors. The x-ray results are on a sheet of paper with your medical files - that's all they want.

That may be so but I'm just quoting from the letter I got with my visa - "Your X-Ray/Diskette: You should also be prepared to present your X-ray film or diskette, which may be carried in your checked luggage for convenience."

Now they DID give it me, and I DID leave it on my friend's computer desk after us laughing about me getting it and not being all that bothered, then we went out and got drunk and I forgot about it. :(

Cannot get hold of either my friend or the visa doctors (completely busy line, as it was for infinity when I was trying to book the appointment, took us hours to get through.)

Just one huge worry after another. :(

is any way you can show up, in person, at the doctor's office, and ask for a COPY of that CDR ?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

It's not an embassy issue -- it's a CBP issue -- find the number on their web site and call, and in the meantime, I agree that you should just go to the doc's office -- it will take them only a minute to make a new CD

I received my medical xray on a cdr yesterday. I was having my CR1 interview in London.

I was not told to give it to anyone. When I do fly with my 'mystery brown envelope', I'll have with the cdr with me,

and I'll only hand it over if they ask.

The only times I have ever read about someone having to hand over their x-ray is when someone is coming in from a country that has many cases of active TB such as the Philippines. There is a medical expert available at disembarkation for some of these flights and they have sometimes requested seeing medical proof of negative TB. These cases are few and far between and I suspect there would have to be some sort of reason or suspicion to make this request. (The one case that comes to mind did involve a young woman who had TB when she entered - she was held and not allowed to enter the US. I don't know what her medical reports had said).

You will not require your x-ray to enter coming from the UK. There will be no reason to suspect you of having active TB since the country your flight originates from does not have active TB rampant in the community. This would be the only reason anyone would request your x-ray. Regardless, the actual printed out hard copy report that states you do not have TB is inside the medical results contained within that brown envelope that you are not to open. Carry that brown envelope with you - not in checked luggage - and you will hand it over to immigration when you activate (I know - that isn't the right word but it explains what happens) the visa in your passport. That is all that is required. The x-rays are your souvenir of your medical :) .

I actually handed my x-ray over to my new family doctor to keep on file for comparison purposes. It forms a baseline of what my lungs looked like when I arrived.

Don't panic about this - you will be fine. If your friend ever finds the CD he can then mail it to you - either before or after your flight to the US.

Two posts containing personal attacks have been removed. If you cannot contribute constructively to the discussion, then do not contribute at all. Judgmental and negative comments help no one and will only exacerbate an already stressful situation. I repeat, if you do not wish to participate constructively and supportively in this discussion, then do not participate at all.

I agree. My husband came from the Dominican Republic last year and even though we brought the x-ray in our hecked luggage no one asked for that. Besides, maybe they have something about it inside of the "mystery envelope" that everyone comes in with. He came in through JFK International and I saw no doctors waiting to check them there. If that was the case wouldn't you have had issues at the doctors office in the first place. Take it easy and come on over!
