Medical Exam and other questions

My case number is EU135XX. I reckon that my interview will be at the end of January or early Feb. I am Irish but live in Brazil so opted to be interviewed there. I have just discovered that I am five weeks pregnant. I don't really trust the medical system in Brazil for a number of very good reasons. I will be in Ireland for Christmas. I was wondering if it would be possible to do my, and my husband's medical exam(by a US embassy listed doctor) while we are in Ireland or is that going to cause some sort paperwork issues? Will I also have to get the vaccines?

My baby is due in mid July. If I am interviewed in February I will have six months to enter the US. Given that I am pregnant, I would prefer to have the baby before we went to the US as neither of us will have jobs , medical coverage etc. Is it possible to enter the US after we get the Visa while I'm pregnant. Then return to Brazil and reenter the US when the baby is about three months old? If so, where will the baby stand from a visa point of view? Or can the embassy delay issuing the visa a little, given my circumstances?

The medicals need to be done in the same country you interview. You will have to trust that the doctor appointed by the US government knows what he/she is doing....including what is waiverable for pregnancy. Either that, or move your interview location to Ireland and be prepared to go over for a couple of weeks around when you do your interview. (Can I observe that it is strange you distrust the Brazilian medical system to do a medical exam but yet are happy to have your baby there?)

They won't delay visa issuance because you are pregnant. If you have the baby after activating (entering on your immigrant visa) as you describe, there is proviso that the baby will be processed on your next entry as an LPR. I'm not sure of all the details about this but you may need a 'travel letter' from the embassy- especially for the airlines who need to see documenttaion. And obviously you will need a passport for the baby as well.

Thanks Susie, you are so helpful as always. In relation to your question, I possibly may have my child in Ireland, as the doctors here have messed up big time.

In relation to entering the the USA with the visa and reentering at a later stage(maybe up to six months after, as we will have a lot to sort out before we make the move). What do I need to do? Is there some sort of process I need to go through or special reentry permit?

Once you enter, you become an LPR. You can then stay out for a year without needing a re-entry permit. (And the immigrant visa in your passport then becomes a temporary green card for a year after first entry, so you don't need to wait for your physical green card either.) If you're out longer than 6 months they may question you a bit more closely, but especially if it is the first re-entry they are quite understanding - they realise people need to sort out things like selling homes etc to make the move permanent. Longer than a year and up to two years, you will need a re-entry permit.

Oh, I mentioned you need a passport for the baby, you need a long form birth certificate too for baby to be processed on arrival.
