Sputum test...

Well things seem to be going faster than expected. We started the application mid June and had our interview October 15th. The interview was easy, 5 questions. We had a complete packet as well.

The health exam is where our problem begins. During the chest x-ray they noticed a black spot on her lung. They told her she would need to submit 3 sputum samples and then depending on the results she would be granted a visa or 6+ months of medications before re testing.

Has any one else gone through this? How long do these test usually take? How long after the results will it take to receive visa?

So frustrating. Thanks for any advice. Gregory

Aloha Gregory, Hang in there. They hold the samples for 8 weeks to grow bacteria cultures and test for TB. This is truly a case where no news is good news! Results should be available in week 9 or 10 according to the research I've done. I'm not sure how long after the completed medical is submitted will they issue the visa. We are in the same boat. My wife just completed her samples yesterday...tick tock
