Medical Before NOA2/Right After

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Howdy all. I am going to be visiting my fiance in November in the UK, and we may not have received our NOA2 at that point. We'll be in London visiting family, so I thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and get the Medical if at all possible. Is there anyway to just print out the Step 3 documents and gather all other necessary documents and get it done? If I can, please let me know the procedure. Thank you to all.

I've requested that an organizer come in and move this thread to the UK forum, since after the NOA2, the process becomes very country specific. I am sure they'll have the proper answers for you! :)

FYI, the UK forum is here:

You might be OK but this is as stated UK specific. You would hate to pay and do a medical, have it expire and redo.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

You won't be able to do your medical untill you get your new case number which will start with LND.....

Once you receive your NOA2 your case gets sent onto the National visa center, where they will assign the case number and send your paperwork off to the embassy in London.

It's best to wait until after your paperwork has been sent off as your medical results get forwarded to the embassy 3 days after your medical. If your case hasn't arrived yet, your medical notes might be filed somewhere else and could slightly delay your case.

Appointments are easy to get for the medical, often you can book it a few days or a week ahead, so don't worry about a long wait.

Hope this helps! :)

Short answer: No.

It's not possible until your petition is approved by USCIS, assigned the consular number by the NVC, and on its way to London. Knightsbridge will ask for the LND# to associate it with the medical report that will be sent to the Embassy in London.

That said, do take a look at the vaccines that will be needed for AOS and get those done by the NHS GP and get the appropriate documentation stating you've had them done so they can be recorded into the med report at Knightsbridge. http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/164203/cons-visa/iv018a_medical.pdf
