Is it rare for the Medical Results to be Sent to the Embassy?

45 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance had his medical last week and went yesterday for the results. That asked him for a urine test and told him to call today to see if they are ready to be picked up.

When he called today. they told him that all the results would be sent to the embassy on Monday. His interview is Wednesday. :help:

Of course we are worried that something is wrong. Is this a rare thing that they don;t give you the results to you.

Just in case anyone is wondering, he does not use illegal drugs. I'm worried that there is a medical condition that he was not aware of. Could this be why they will not give him the results but are electing to send them straight to the embassy? Please Help! We are dying to know, Why? :help:

Sorry got this off your embassy site:

"The medical results will be given to the visa applicant as soon as the results are ready. However, if there is any problem with your medical condition the results will be sent directly to the Consular Section."

Yes, I just read that before I got your response. I'm really scared now. Wondering what it could be. How can the medical results or better yet what can be in the medical report that could negatively affect a visa, other than a serious infectious disease, which I know for sure he does not have?

So I just spoke with my fiancé and he told me that last month he began to have insomnia because of the immigration stress so he went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist gave him this pill and I can't pronounce it, but he told me that he takes one every night to help him sleep.

He said that it is given by the pharmacist and not illegal. That's the only thing that he thinks could be the reason. He does not take any other drugs except that one. I'm thinking that this was the reason for the urine test.

I don't know how things work in the DR as far as getting medicine from Pharmacist versus getting prescription from doctor. Anyone with information, please let me know how this works and what affect this can have on him at the interview.

Thanks dwheels but I think it's old info because the Embassy Page in the DR states that NOW the results are given to the applicant. I just pray that it's the meds.

if he was taking any form of medication If I were him I would have stated it on his medical questionnaire and the reason being. As a nurse I know patients take chronic scheduled II narcotic drugs to keep them someone what pain free strong drugs such as morphine, oxycontin, oxycodone ect. If there is any reason a person would need a sleeping aid such as zolpidem (ambien) or any other sleeping aid even Benadryl, it is good practices for cases such as these to list any known medications and reason being, (E.G. insomnia, pain, whatever)

I have advised my fiance to stop taking the insomnia medicine. I've been doing some research and found that the CO may determine that he is a drug abuser even if it's an over-the-counter-medicine, so to speak. :ranting:

The Embassy may even delay the visa until he passes 4 clean urine tests. :wow: That's harsh because, we can go to CVS or Walgreens and get medicine to help us sleep and this would not even be considered drug abuse. I'm NOT saying that this will be the case during his interview, I'm just preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

I also discovered that a person who lives in a small city in the DR like where my fiance lives, there are no major markets or food stores. When a resident feels sick, he can just go the the Farmacia and tell the Pharmacist what's bothering him and the Pharmacist will just give him a medicine. The majority of the residents are very poor and couldn't afford a doctor if they needed one.

This is what happened to my Fiance. I also remember when I took a not so glamorous spill during on of my visits to see him, he just went to the Farmacia and told the Pharmacist that I had twisted my knee. He came out of store with two pills that seemed to have been cut from a pack of pills. He told me that the pharmacist stated that this would help my knee. I have to admit, that I was pretty skeptical, but I was in pain, so I only took one, and put the other one in my purse. When I got back to the United States, I googled the pill and came to find out that it was plain naproxen, similar to Aleve.

I'm just praying everything works out for us and if he has to take the dreaded sets of urine tests, I guess this will set us back at least another six months or so in AP. Just thinking, thinking, thinking. Thanks for listening guys.

I will ask him what he indicated on the Medical form when they asked him if he was taking any medications and also what he put on the DS-160. If he said NO on both, then we have our answer. RED Flag!!! OMG.

good idea just to ask. Yes pharmacies in the DR are more free, I did missionary work there so it is the truth. Hope it all works out. wonder if he did forget to disclose any medications he uses if he can resubmit a DS160? Or, he will just have to bite the bullet at the interview and disclose there. Would be great to get a doctor's note but.. doubt it works like that in the DR stateting or proving necessity for certain medications.

Since He hasn't submitted the Ds-160 yet, I think I'm going to tell him to re-do it and indicate that he uses that medicine for insomnia. Great idea . Thanks a bunch!!!!!! It can't hurt me thinks. Edited by DarkKiss

yay! that sounds like a plan. ask him the name of the medication of try to sound it out so I can better help you understand the drug. I doubt they would give him ambien (zolpidem) but, then again their pharmacies are more lenient than ours over there

Wow let's hope for the best because most sleeping pills are barbiturates. So in a urine test it can come up as a heavy drug. He should've told them what he was taking cause I think they ask u. At the interview explains the misunderstanding.
