Hello Fellow Indians,

Could someone who's gone through the process let me know the approximate charges for the medicals? Mind you, I do not have any records of vaccinations, though I know I got all the ones I had to as a kid, etc.

I'm just trying to figure out an approximate cost here. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Fellow Indians,

I'm just trying to figure out an approximate cost here. Any help would be appreciated.

In Chennai, for my case:

Medcial Fee: Rs 2850 INR

And was asked to buy 2 vaccinations from their pharmacy, and paid Rs 805 INR for that. So all together Rs 2850 + Rs 805 = Rs 3655 INR.

I didn't bring any records of vaccinations and I also got all necessary one in childhood. And Dr didnt ask me either about records. It was very easy! :)

Medical was really quick and simple. :)

You Must have the physical examination = 1600 rupees, PLUS blood work (1045 rupees), X-rays (350 Ruppes). The vaccinations will depend on what you need. Plan on having all of them even if you already had some. Well, I'm planning to spend the amount on the list hoping that it will be less :)

I'm sure you already looked this link: here it is anyway, http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3745.html#_What_vaccinations_are_1

"What vaccinations are required?

The following vaccinations are required for immigration purposes:

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis B

Influenza

Influenza type b (Hib)

Measles

Meningococcal

Mumps

Penumococcal

Pertussis

Polio

Rotavirus

Rubella

Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids

Varicella

For the Panel Physician Technical Instructions relating to the vaccination requirements, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

What do I do if the applicant does not have a vaccination record?

The panel physician will work with the applicant to determine which vaccinations the applicant may need to meet vaccination requirements. "
