Medical- Dominican Republic

Recommended Posts

My fiance went to do his medical yesterday in the capital. He told me he got there at 6:30 and he waited in line for a while. when he got inside, he had to fill up a paper with my address.. and thank God he had it. A lot of people had to go home because they did not have that information.. so make sure you know it. They also ask for the Petitioners phone number(make sure to know this too). My fiance decided not to carry his cellphone with him, so he had to go outside and ask someone to let him call his mother so she can give him my number. Also know your SDO number. These are all very important. They asked him for 5 2x2 photos(not 6). What really surprised me is the price of the medical. Originially we thought it was going to be $190(without vaccines).. but they charged him $289 :ranting::ranting: and he is around 20-25 age range. He was planning to do the vaccines, but after this ridiculous price, he decidced not to. The vaccines are $45 each, and he needed 3 of them. They did a blood test, x-rays and physical exam.. and I think think that was it. He did tell me there was a lot of people, but he got out pretty quickly. He was there for about 4 hours in total.

They put like a sticker on his passport that says to pick up his exam next Thrusday.

I hope this is helpful to anyone.! :dancing:

It doesnt matter the price, it is better take the vacines here.

Because now for his aos, he needs see a doctor at usa and it will be more expensive there.

The doctor has to be authorized by uscis to do medical.

Hope you find one near your home.

I know i did tell him that many times, but he is very hardheaded. I think he was just very surprised with the price after he thought it was 190. But yeah i live in NY i hope here we find one right away.

He went to the old one.

So he paid 289.00 without the vaccines? was that 190.00 for the medical and 99.00 for the influenza shot?

I always tell people bring more photos than you need. No harm in having 10 photos in your pocket if you only need 5. But if you have 5 and you need 6, big problem.

And most if not all allow cell phones inside. Usually it is only the embassy that has a problem with your cell phone. So bring it in case you need it.

If you come here with missing vaccines, you don't need to have the Civil Surgeon do them. You can go to any doctor or clinic you please for that. Just make sure to get a certificate that they gave you the shot to present to the Civil Surgeon.

That does not seem right, because according to the Embassy website, $289.00 is for exam and vaccines and if you get flu shot, it's $99.00 more. Are you sure he didn't get the vaccines? I'm just asking because my fiances went last Tuesday for his medical. He got vaccine and exam and paid $289.00.

He didn't take the flu shot because that would have been another additional $99.00. Your fiance may need to verify. He probably did get the vaccines. I'm not saying he is telling an untruth. I guess you will know for sure when he picks up the results on Thursday. Thanks for the information.

I thought the flu shot was mandatory during this time of the year, it is not administered from February 22nd to August 20th I think. I don't remember where I read it but I've seen it somewhere. I may be wrong, I'm not sure.
