Hi ,

Do we need to take medical reports for the biometrics appointment?

I have scheduled medical examination and biometrics one day after another .

When i had a re-look at the biometrics appointmer confirmation mail, The mail says this:

Instructions You have scheduled an appointment for a non-immigrant or immigrant visa to the U.S. Most applicants will have an appointment at the Visa Application Center (VAC), followed by an appointment at the Embassy or Consulate. Please carefully review the important information below. Coming prepared will ensure you the best service possible.

What documents do I need to bring?
Checklist for Non-Immigrant Visa (NIV) Applicants

Appointment confirmation letter

● Your current passport and most recently expired passport

● Print out of the DS-160 confirmation page

● Supporting documents for your application, as applicable

●Documents and photographs for any children under age 14

Appointment confirmation letter
● Your current passport and most recently expired passport
● Print out of the DS-260 (or DS-160 for K visas) confirmation page

● Original and photocopy of birth and marriage certificates
