Hi all,

My Friend's wife is pregnant and the expected delivery is May-2015. And the interview is expected to be in Jan or Feb 2015. Is the medical report is compulsory for his wife, since the X-Ray is required for the medical report and it is risk to the fetus. Is their application will be denied?

Regards,

The panel doctor will determine what is or isn't safe for her to do. So she will have a medical but if there is anything unsafe the doctor will just note he couldn't do X because of the pregnancy. It won't affect the outcome.

She is expected to do a medical exam regardless of being pregnant if she hopes to be issued with an IV. The FAQ on the DOS website says:

" If the applicant is pregnant must she have a chest x-ray?

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires that women who are pregnant and required to have a medical examination in connection with the issuance of a visa, and are examined in a country currently using the 2007 TB Technical Instructions must have a chest x-ray examination conducted. Pregnant women will have to provide the panel physician with consent to conduct the chest x-ray. For the health of the applicant and her unborn child, CDC instructs panel physicians and laboratories to provide abdominal and pelvic protection with double layer, wrap-around lead shields when they receive the chest radiographs."
