Ouch sis...isn't this risky? Could you not get an earlier medical exam? I know our medical takes 2 days then results are sent but the medical clinic said we should schedule 2 weeks of more before the interview. I would be on pins and needles, delays always seem to happen when you are waiting on a smooth process.

The warmth of true friendship and the love that binds the hearts of husband and wife are a foretaste of heaven. God has ordained that there should be perfect love and perfect harmony between those who enter into the marriage relation. Let bride and bridegroom in the presence of the heavenly universe pledge themselves to love one another as God has ordained they should. {LYL}

Hi! My husband (then-fiance), did his exam two days prior to his interview. But he says that the exam can be completed a day before the interview. You go really early for the exam, and you go pick up the results that same day at 2pm.

They suggest one or two days before the interview, so you should be ok with a day before. It is children that need at least 4 days prior. > http://photos.state.gov/libraries/ciudadjuarez/231771/PDFs/Mexwidenov13eng.pdf

We are doing Medical on Monday in Juarez and interview is on Wednesday

Hello RobbieG, I just had my interview last week on Thursday 8th, I did my medical on Tuesday 6th because I was nervous it would take them too long to deliver the results but it was not the case. I went to Medicos de visas (They don't charge the taxes so it was $190 for K1 instead of $220) at 10:00 AM and my results were ready the same day at 2:00 PM.
