post visa interview question !!!!

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

First, we have passed the visa interview, wow a nervous process to say the least. Now my fiancée tells me she still needs to get vaccinations before the visa is issued and before coming to America because it will delay her green card state side. Is there any thing to this or is she just getting bad or outdated information. I really need a quick answer. She is insistent that we must do this ASP, but nothing was indicated from her visa approval that she needed to do anything else, other than wait for the sealed documents and visa. thanks in advance

Congrats, she doesn't need her vaccinations to get her visa or to enter the US. She will need them to adjust status once here, she will need to seek a civil surgeon once here to get her vaccinations. We just got approved, we decided to do vaccinations in Vietnam because it was so much cheaper. Good luck

She can get them there, or in the US. Either way, she will need to see a civil surgeon in the US to get them transcribed onto an I-693 for AOS. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/551080-immunizations-ds-3025-or-i-693/

thanks for the information ! I am trying to tell her we don't need it now because once we are married in the US, my health insurance will cover this, (and at a great deal less than anywhere else on the planet) but she thinks we need to do it, so I agree as long as we get the I-693 form. I think it is no big deal but we will try it her way first ! either way the hard part is over with !!!

thanks to all ! the info on the AOS is very helpful like all the other info we have used on this site !!!

Immigration is a stressful process. Why make her more stressed than she already is? If she want's peace of mind, let her get her vaccinations in her home country so she has one less thing to stress about. Just remind her to bring a copy of her vaccination report on the plane.

My wife got her vaccines done in Guangzhou at the medical facility before her K1 interview. While she didn't need it for the interview, I had them on hand when filing for her AOS. Its helpful, and one less thing you need to arrange once you land in the USA.
