Step 6: Get your Medical Examination done

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

just a quick question on the next step AFTER completion and submission of Checklist IV. Do I have to wait until I receive my interview appointment to go and get my medical done or do I have to get it done BEFORE they're even going to set up an interview appointment for us?

This senctence (Step 6) got me confused: A final visa interview appointment can only be scheduled by us after the medical exam results have been received.

Thanks

K.

You have to bring the interview appointment letter to the medical, otherwise they have no right to examine you so thorouhly ;) I think what they mean is that you have an interview appointment set up for you, which will not be changed/canceled, if your results come out alright at the medical. If they actually did discover something wrong (e.g. missing vaccination, TB,...), then your interview would be shifted back.

But generally speaking, the Frankfurt consulate requires people with immigrant petitions to have their medical done before their interview.

This does not apply to K-1 right? Because I was under the impression my Fiancee can already do the medical even before interview is scheduled.

I am only familiar with the CR1/IR1 process. Maybe it's different with K1s since they're technically considered non-immigrant visas.

Sorry, my bad! :oops: You were actually right. You don't need the appointment letter - I confused it with the medical for teacher training in Germany. It just says "You should note that the medical examination is only valid for 6 months! This means that the validity of your immigrant

visa will conform to the expiration date of the examination. We therefore request that you do not schedule the
medical examination until instructed to do so by our office." But you definitely should have your medical done before the interview.
Good luck!

I called the physician yesterday and they said I do not need the bring the letter with me and normally people get the medical done before they even get the interview date... I am confused .... :help::unsure:

So you can just go do your medical whenever you like (the Frankfurt physicians do walk-ins without appointments). You could get it done right now because I think you will have your interview within the next 6 months (since you're doing DCF), so it would stil be valid for the visa. Most VJers get it done 2 weeks before the interview date, which gives the physician enough time to get all the results they need from the lab tests, evaluate them and send them to the embassy. This way, your visa is valid until the 6-month-mark of your medical, leaving you enough time to pack all your things here and get on a plane to the US.
