Hello all readers,

I am a French citizen who is currently in the process of obtaining his permanent residency in the US.

My priority date is July 2005.

I got an approval of my case in June 2009.

Recently, my US citizen dad (who is doing my paperwork) told me he sent in a form called I-824 to the California NVC, which I read somewhere will take about 3 months of process.

I am concerned about something. There is a medical visit one is subjected to go through and I was told it was pretty pricy. I already asked this on another thread. But in case no one sees it I will ask my question here. How much will the medical visit cost me in US Dollars (or Euros) total?

Thanks for reading and good luck to all wanting to emigrate to the US,

prvii

Assuming Paris, the medical is currently 200 euros.

Found here: http://travel.state.gov/pdf/medical/PRS-MED-MULT-0007-1212.pdf (via http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3739.html)

There may be additional fees if you have to get any vaccinations you are missing or for additional testing (sputum exam, for example), but that document does not specify.

The medical stuff and paperwork are two different areas, if you have medical insurance it will cover most of the MD stuff, you pay for the USCIS paperwork. Or that's how it worked in the US with BCBS. Welcome and good luck.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.
