Vaccinations and the Medical Exam

Hey guys, especially those working with Mexico....

I am confused about whether vaccinations are required or not. One place on the government website, I thought it said it wasn't required for Fiance Visas. Then I think I saw someone on VJ say they had to.

What's the deal here? If he is going to need vaccines there, then we'll have to send him a lot more money now (which is fine, we just need to know). Noone wants to be carrying around any more money than they have to in Juarez.

And there's so many different types of vaccinations that I'm not sure how many they would want him to have if, for instance, has none.

Does this mean he's supposed to bring his medical records with him as well?

Vaccinations are not required for fiancé visas in Mexico. I brought my vaccination records and they not even asked for them at the clinic. However, if he hadn't gotten certain vaccinations, the civil surgeon will give them all the shots he needs (at AOS stage).

If he could get them in Mexico, much better! Vaccines are more expensive in US than Mexico. In Seguro social or Secretaria de salud are for free.

The basic ones are: MMR(measles,mumps, rubella), Tdap (tetanus, diphteria, pertussis)and varicella.

Yep, like Danilu said. They are not required for a K-1, and they won't give you any at the panel physician, even if you ask them to. CDJ hands out a blank DS-3025 to K-1 applicants. He will have to see a civil surgeon in the US and have part 1, the vaccination section of part 2, and part 5 of the I-693 filled out when it comes time for AOS. If he can get the MMR and TD/Tdap there in Mexico cheaper or free, then he should. Just have him bring the vaccination record showing he had them done when he comes to the US. If he had chicken pox as a child, he won't need the varicella, otherwise, he needs that one too.

Nevermind...I found the translations on WordReference.com, except for varicella and pertussis. He says he's only missing tetanus.

But what do we do if he can't obtain the medical records?

He will need proof of his vaccinations to be transcribed onto the I-693 after he is in the US. If he has no proof of them, he will need to get the MMR and Tdap again.

What exactly does it mean to have it transcribed? And all he needs is his original medical records to be able to do it?

And he should bring those records to the med appointment in Juarez, so they know he won't need it later, is that right?

No. The medical in Juarez will not look at his medical records, or vaccination records. They do not care. They do not do anything at all about vaccinations for a K-1. He will get a blank form for that, the DS-3025. They will not fill it out. Vaccinations are not part of the K-1 medical in Juarez.

After he is in the US, and you get married, you will be filing for AOS. For AOS you will need to find a civil surgeon that will give him any shots he needs, and fill out the I-693 for you to send in with his AOS application.

IF he had the shots done now in Mexico for free or cheaper, they would document that he had them done on a vaccination record. It tells what shots he had and the date he had it done. He can thing bring that vaccination record to the US with him. He would take that to the civil surgeon and the civil surgeon would see his record and then put those shots down on the I-693 showing he has had them. That would be transcribing. Taking what he has on his vaccination records and filling it out onto the I-693 form in the vaccination section he will need filled out.

For his medical in Juarez, he will need nothing having to do with his vaccines or records.

Ok, thanks for the explanation!

Is there anything else he should be getting together to bring up for when we start the AOS?

Yes, you can translate it after he in the US. If he is fluent in both languages, he can even do it himself. You just need to add this on the translated document:

Certification by Translator

I [typed name], certify that I am fluent (conversant) in the English and ________ languages, and that the above/attached document is an accurate translation of the document attached entitled ______________________________.

Signature_________________________________

Date Typed Name
