Medical to interview

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Based on the K1 Instruction sent to the applicants by the embassy, medical must be taken at least a week, but if it were me, I'd schedue it 2-3 weeks ahead of time just to be on the safe side.

MEDICAL EXAMINATION. All K1 and K2 visa applicants must complete a medical examination at St. Luke’s Medical Center Extension Clinic (SLMCEC) at least a week before the interview appointment. Prior to their visit, applicants are also encouraged to register online with SLMCEC at their website: www.slec.ph. Registering online will save processing time and make the visit to SLMCEC faster and more efficient.

Country specific issue moved to regional forums so the OP gets correct answers from others in that country.

How many days was in between your scheduled interview and 2 day medical? Can you suggest when I should take my medical if my interview is on June 28, 2013?

Thank you! smile.png

We allowed a week between the medical and the interview, the embassy recommends 5 -7 days (bottom link)

St. Luke's:

(GUYS if you are in the Phils with your Fiancee before the medical NO contact until AFTER St. Luke's is completed - as in KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS)

http://www.slec.ph/us-visa-applicants.shtml#required-docs

Have copies of passport bio page, confirmation page from scheduling interview online at embassy (or if the embassy mails a confirmation letter bring a copy of that) (NVC Instructions Letter is for IR/CR-1 visa), and of course the 2X2 photos. (copy of annulment is asked for at times)

PREREGISTER at St. Luke's website, it saves time when you arrive. http://www.slec.ph/us/registration/

Information from the embassy about the medical: http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3218.html

Thank you all. I have been thinking of doing it for 2 weeks before because of the xray thing but I just don't want to waste so much time in Manila. I never am comfortable in that city but I know sacrifices are to be made :( I'm really sure that I don't have TB as my boyfriend had his Mantoux test in the US some time after seeing me. However, it still won't be enough reason to say I didn't get lung scarring from other diseases like pneumonia. Haaaaaaay. I'm just praying and keeping my self healthy now for no further delays :)

Haha! I think I am pretty much regular and other than that me and my bf agreed to meet once the visa is on hand as to spend less :D But seriously guys and girls, Heed the warning ;)

One week is plenty of time. They simply want to make sure they have the results of the medical in time. Most medical results are shipped to embassy in 3 days or less. This was told to me by an employee of the embassy.
