Interview passed but Medical expiring soon!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

My fiance passed her interview exam few weeks back (in Dubai) and got her visa which expires in March. The issue we are facing is the lady who took her interview told my fiance that she has to come to USA by Nov 26 as her Medical will be expiring soon. If not then she will have to retake the interview. She took her medical on May 30 and it has a 6 month expiry. Her initial interview was in first week of june, but due to some circumstances we postponed it. We have a few questions. Why did the lady say Nov 26? Even if she needs to be here before medical exam expires doesn't that give her till Nov 29? (Unless she wanted us to play safe and be here few days earlier?). Other questions we have:

Does she have to retake interview if her medical expires? (That is what the lady said but we could not find any documentation on this).

What if she comes after Medical exam expires? Lets say in January. Will she be denied entry in USA?

Is it possible to just retake Medical exam before coming in January? If she does retake medical exam does it have to be before prior medical expires?

I also read online where some people are saying as long as fiance comes before visa expires its fine and she doesn't have to retake medical or interview.

Thanks

Why did the lady say Nov 26? Nov 26 is exactly 180 days (6 months)

Medical is actually good for a year (many embassies tie the validity of the visa to the date of the medical for it's validity which is where the 6 months comes from). Only date you need to pay attention to is the visa expiration date, be in the USA before that date.

I think you need to be asking the embassy these questions. She won't be able to even board the flight if she has an expired USA visa. Talk to the embassy about your options if you need to further delay her entry.

She is not planning to come after visa expires which is in March. But we would like to postpone to January if possible but her medical exam expires end of November. From what the lady told us it seems that if she doesn't come before medical exam expires then she would have to retake interview and medical exam. Is that really true? Or was she mistaken?

as far as i know, your fiance has to enter the US before the medical report expires, in her case before november 26 as the officer said, if not she will have to do a new medical exam...
