Hello everyone

I haven't gotten the date for the interview but we already have NOA2. I have read I need medical examination.

I got plenty Vaccines following a list I found from US embassy in Costa Rica. But I also read I need X-ray of my chest and blood test.

I want to know what kind of blood test I need for the medical appointment?? :blink:

Will the embassy tell me about what particular exams I have to take to the doctor appointment when they call me?? :unsure:

I'm super confused Please :help:

You would probably get more specific information on this in the Regional specific threads. When you schedule your interview, you should receive or pick up a packet that will guide you through the steps. Your medical exam will be conducted at a place and by doctors designated by the embassy. It's great that you got a vaccines record to show. You can present that at your exam, and the doctors will only give you the vaccines you need if any. You don't need to do anything else as you will be required to take the appointed medical exam, and everything you need done is included in your medical exam fee. For example, if you got a chest x-ray or blood tests now, it wouldn't matter as you would just have to repeat those very same things and pay for those same things when you arrive to your medical exam.

The chest x-ray is for tuberculosis. The blood test is for syphilis.

The embassy will give you a list of acceptable panel physicians where you can go for the medical exam. The panel physician will know which tests are required. Bring your vaccination record to the medical and you should be able to skip some or all of the vaccines.

this attachment will tell you where to go for your medical exam. Good luck!

Call one of the doctors on the list, make an appointment, then make sure you go to the laboratory and the radiology dept to get your blood drawn and your chest x-ray the day before your med. exam and make sure you tell them which doctor to send the results to. The instructions are in the attachment below.
