TB test, medical

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I understand that for my step-daughter the TB test will take for 4 days, before they know the result. Why is it necessary to do it in Bogota ? My fiancee lives in Medellin, so, she has to pay for a hotel for 4-5 days just for this test. That is not fair. Can this test and the medical exams ( vaccinations ??? ) be done in another city with her own doctor ? We are trying to save on the expenses and I find these restrictions very unfair towards people, who are not wealthy. Thanks.

No it cant.

You can only use the listed doctors. They are the only recognized ones.

Everyone has to have TB test, if you fail the test then you do not get the visa until you are treated for TB and show that you do not have it anymore.

If you are over 30 days from your last test after entry they probably will check again and blood also. You can only use USCIS approved civil surgeons. Coming to America is not cheap, but fun.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

When I was there last week I thought I had the same problem. The doctor in Bogota said that the test was not needed so it wasn't a problem for us. I looked at the new requirements and it seems that they are asking for it. Not sure when or if it is being enforced at the embassy in Bogota. I would call the Dr. your going to use in Bogota and check with them.
