TB test is a test on your underarm. they will poke you with a small needle and put some liquid on, that contains dead TB cells. then you will have to wait for a reaction between 48 & 36 hours. if its positive, they will have to do a X-ray.

The CS will make the determination, remember getting it done is the goal. Ours was squared away, but I found a real DR to do it, medical insurance paid for some of it.

has anyone been to Knighstbridge doctors in the last year? i was reading posts about TB. TST what is that exactly ? i don't know if i had it done by knightsbridge doctors!!! shall i have it done by a u.s CS or not since i had X-ray in England ? thanks a lot

You had the chest x-ray done at your medical. That was to check for TB. You are not required to get another medical or any parts of another medical, such as blood work and TB testing if your medical was done within the last year before filing for AOS. Same answer I gave yesterday in another thread of yours: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/366778-the-hell-of-i-693/page__view__findpost__p__5360135

They should not just let the CS 'make that determination' and call around until they find a CS that will do just the vaccinations like they are supposed to for a K-1. Like it states in the instructions for the I-485 and I-693. Most civil surgeons will 'make that determination' and insist they need a medical and/or more testing. However, they do not. It is not required, and people should call around till they find a CS that won't make them do unnecessary medical tests just because they get to rake in money from it.

Better yet, for countries that give K-1 applicants vaccinations and fill out the DS-3025 for them at their medical, they should go ahead and get all the required vaccinations and have them all marked off on their DS-3025. Then they will not even need to go through the hassle and headache of finding a CS that is not trying to milk them for every cent they can. They can skip the CS and just send in a copy of their DS-3025.

To the OP and anyone else reading this that is wondering if they need to see CS for the I-693, please read this> http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/335754-ds-3025-complete-or-not/page__p__4971318#entry4971318
