Will 16 Days B4 interview Ok to do Medical

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance's interview is 11/19/2014. He wants to go 11/3/2014 to do his medical. They say 2 weeks B4 interview is when you do your medical exam. Will the few days early make a big difference or will he be turned away?

I know it sounds like a simple thing, but he has to travel almost 3 hours by bus , so it would be a big disappointment and waste of time and money if when he got there, he was told it was too early to get exam.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Most embassies around the world want no less than 7 days. Possible that this one is a bit slower. Check the web page for the consulate there (all consulates have one) and see.

One guy who applied through our consulate had written on here that his wife took hers two weeks before the interview date and the results made it there barely in time. The guy at the counter actually pressed the Refresh button on the system and it popped up right then. I'd recommend no shorter than two weeks. Theirs was probably slightly longer because the wife was pregnant and had a waiver on the xrays...kinda complicated it I guess.

Good Morning DarkKiss,

I have an interview in DR on 12/15, so Ive been doing some homework. The case for DR is as follows:

Medical docs can not be older than 30 days, the suggested is 10-14 days prior to interview.

Yenni VJ member interviewing in DR just had hers done and best to go on Thursdays and Fridays as its not as crowded.

You get a sticker on your passport instructing to return in 3 days for pick up of medical docs. They no longer send to Embassy.

You now need (6) photos.

Hope this helps, Good luck to you on your interview. Please post your visa receipt date as your interview is schedule after the change in courier service (no longer Domex).

~ Jan ??,2013 ~ Service Center ~ Vermont I-129F Packet sent

NOTE: Actual sent date unknown due to lawyer negligence - I delivered ALLForms and PAID Lawyer on Nov 7, 2012 - Lawyer kept saying he sent the packet and USCIS must have lost it. When in reality he failed to send the package and only a new copy to USCIS after I made a legal written demand giving him 10 days to perform or return ALL monies paid to him, due to "non-performance".

(IMO it's better to save your money for visits to or from your Fiancé and just fill it out yourself using the K-1 Guide on VJ and Senior Members... They Rock!!!)

My Fiancé's interview is 11/25 and he went today 10/30 without a problem. He got there a 6am, started the process at 7am and was out by 10:30am. He said he first paid $190 and then $45 separately for vaccination (optional). He was weighed, asked some medical questions, blood work done and 3 shots. The correct amount of pictures is now (5). He has to pick up results on 11/5 (4 business days from exam).
