Hi

Can anyone please tell me if you need to complete or asked for your full medical history, during or after my visa medical exam? As probably like most people i cant remember every single thing that i have visited the Doctors or Hospital for and as for dates that would be impossible!! Also do you need a copy of your medical file to take with you to the states?

Thanks

Ian

I had my medical exam in Korea.. They did not asked for the specific dates or so.

I think they might ask you questions like:

Do you have these diseases....

Have you been hospitalized? why?

They have a checklist to complete so they will really ask you questions about mental problems even sexual diseases.. Based from that interview they will determine what vaccinations that you need..

Yes, they will give you copy of your chest xray and vaccination record which I think will be needed upon entering the US soil..

Hope this helps :)

You will take the medical questionnaire found in this PDF file http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/164203/cons-visa/iv018a_medical.pdf to the appointment. If you have had any serious illness or say yes to things on the questionnaire, then Knightsbridge will usually ask for a statement from your GP explaining it further with a short description with dates and if you took medication, still take medication, were cured, etc. If you have diabetes or high blood pressure for example, then taking the GP's summary will save you the time of getting it after the medical exam.

You also just need to take a vaccination record with you which the doctors receptionist can print off for you in seconds. You dont need to take the whole record. You can ask for a summary which they can also print off to take to the US with you if you wish. I had this done for myself, my husband and daughter and we threw them in the bin because frankly, they are useless! Full of mistakes and false information which was no use to us what so ever.

Thank you all for your advice and help but having read the attachment by nich-nick and the questionnaire they give you, i have a concern about one questions they ask you!!!

Have you ever had a malignancy (cancer)? well in 1983 i non-hodkins lymphoma, which are malignant cells which originate in lymph nodes. It was removed and given a course of chemotherapy just to be on the safe side, i do have a letter dated 4 years after my treatment from Doctor who treated me to say that there has been no evidence of recurrence of this illness and is extremely likely that i has been permanently cured and has no long term effects from his treatment.

So my question is will this effect my chances of passing the medical and will the letter i have help me prove i have not had any problems since which i haven't?

I know it is an unusual question but i am a little concerned about what they might say.

Since you will be ticking "yes" to that question, just take the letter with you which will explain it. And since it was such a long time ago with no recurrences you will more than likely be fine. At most, they will ask for another recent letter from your doctor, but take the one you already have with you and it should be enough.

It doesn't mean you won't pass the medical. The doctor who sees you for 15 minutes at Knightsbridge just wants official medical notes from somebody who knows your case better, rather than taking your version of it. Cathy (I think) had to do the same for a prior cancer treatment and can tell you exactly what she had to provide.

I was treated for cancer in 1995 so I ticked the box but to my mind it was history so I didn't think to take any documentation with me. The doctor at the clinic asked me to get a letter from my doctor stating the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Once I had that (and it was just a few lines) I faxed it to them and they were happy. So I would suggest you ask your doctor for an up to date letter and take that with you.
