We received our NOA-2 today and are very excited!

Looking ahead to the next steps we have to take we are wondering the following:

As she lives near the border and visits as a "Canadian tourist" most weekends - is it ok to have the Medical exam for the K-1 VISA interview performed in the United States by a Civil Surgeon OR does she have to have the medical in Canada by a Panel physician?

Any help with this would be most appreciated!!

You must get a K-1 medical by a panel physician that is approved by the consulate in your own country. A civil surgeon in the US does not use the same forms as a panel physician abroad. You need that Dept. of State medical exam for the visa approval. http://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/exams/medical-examination-faqs.html#3

(organizer hat off)

Welcome to the forum.

The medical must be performed by a panel physician approved by the visa-issuing consulate.

Look for the medical offices approved by the consulate where she interviews. If you have a choice of offices, read up on them to decide which is the better choice. But at any rate, she needs one of them. Once she arrives in the US on a K-1 she can use the Civil Surgeon of her choice.
