Police Cert required for Medical?

I received my paperwork from London yesterday confirming receipt etc etc and submitted the police cert request today so they will receive tomorrow.

Just wondering whether this will be required for the medical? Ideally I want to do the medical as soon as possible and hopefully have an interview soon after that but does anyone have experience of this?

Cheers

David

It is now a requirement that you have the police certificate at the medical appointment. It is stated on their website. My fiance submitted for his police certificate at the same time as I submitted our I-129F to be sure that we get it in time for when he is contacted from the London Embassy.

London gave you a link to the instructions. Read carefully. Everywhere it says "click here for further information" do so or you will miss something. Use a PC, not a phone or tablet, or you will miss something.

If you read the web instructions, then you missed a link in Step Three of the instructions for the whole page on the medical that tells you what to bring. http://london.usembassy.gov/immigrant-visas/medical-examination.html

Get your shots!!! And don't follow the immunization chart linked from the medical page. It has been out of date since 2009.

London wants the police certs for the med. You need them for the consulate anyway, so get them and be done with it.

The medical office they send you to charges for the shots. So be smart and get them from NHS for free before you go for your med exam.

Cheers for the advice, they've received the application today. Does anyone know whether the police cert does take the full ten days or do they just do this to cover themselves?

Also, with regards to the shots, it says that for K visa applicants you don't need to have the shots until you adjust your status once over in the US?

I'm going to get my medical records and any shots I need anyway.

My fiance applied for his police certificate 2 weeks ago and he still hasn't received it. I'll let you know when he receives it in the mail. He posted it from Kirkcaldy, and we chose to have it returned to him by standard post. Keep in mind the 10 days does not include the day they received the application and the day they mail it out to you.

He is also getting his medical records from his dr. and getting any shots he still needs while he is in Scotland since they will be free for him through NHS.

True that you don't need shots until you apply to adjust status in the US. But shots here in the US are many $$$. Much better financial choice to get them from NHS while you still can.

The cost of shots in the US is only half the problem. Getting yet another doctor in the US to sign off on them is the other hassle. Many refuse unless you pay them for a full medical exam. $$$

Thanks for the info guys, had my medical on Friday which seems to have went well. Need to get a few shots but as I understand I just need to get them at my local GP before I go and as long as they sign and stamp the letter KD gave me that will be sufficient?

It will not be sufficient for your Adjustment of Status. You will have to go to an approved Civil Surgeon in the US to get another vaccination sheet signed off. The USCIS will not take anything from your GP. It has to be a totally finished, all shots done DS-3025 from Knightsbridge or a form I-693 filled out by a US Civil Surgeon.

Some problems others have had who did not get shots done at the GP in advance of their visa medical or done at Knightsbridge on the day.

You could call Knightsbridge and tell the to hold your results until your GP faxes over the new shots. Don't know how long it would take you to get in with the shot nurse. You don't have to actually see the doctor. Then they can fill out your sheet completely finished and mail you a new copy. Then no doctor in the US.

Given that I had been arranging my mothers funeral for over three weeks and final,y took place two days before it, shots were the last thing on my mind. If I had the money to pay for them at KD I would have but having to fork out £400 fora couple hours in London put paid to that.

Will worry about it when I get over there.
