What does VISA TYPE : CA mean ?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just received the medical results at " Consultorio de visas" this is where they perform the medical examination for people that applied for immigrant visas in Dominican Republic.

Outside the sealed manila folder there are some biographic information that includes the following statement in Spanish :

TIPO DE VISA: CA ( " Visa type: Ca " would be the English equivalent )

My question is; what does CA mean ? my wife is under category IR-1, Since i am a U.S. citizen and we have been married for over 4 years now. So what does CA abbreviate for ?

Please Help, has anyone in the Dominican republic had this on their medical results ? anyone knows what it means ?

Please Help, has anyone in the Dominican republic had this on their medical results ? anyone knows what it means ?

Suggestion: Consider calling the clinic where you obtained the test results and asking them what it means.

For all we care, CA may mean 'Consulado Americano', indicating that the documents inside the envelope must follow a certain format and structure, required by the US Consulate. It is possible that this clinic serves other consulates, so they use their own internal code so they know how to put together the whole enchilada.

Point taken and good observation, i called and they tell me it means " Cita Abierta " wich makes no sense since i dont have an open interview date. But whatever, thanks for taking the time to answer.

when you have a CA,(Cita Abierta) it means that that you can go any day for the interview as opposed to them scheduling you for your interview. just make sure that all of the paperwork needed is in order and both you and your spouse must attend the interview.

make sure you get there as early as possible to be able to obtain a spot for the day.
