Medical exam process

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was hoping someone could help me with answers about the medical exam process. I do not live in Lagos, but I will be going there for the medical exams. Is it a one day process...or does it require me to come more than one day to complete them? I know there is probably a separate day to come back to collect the results, but is all the testing done in one day? Also, how close to the interview should I get it done. For example, if my interview is not until October (I have not been scheduled yet, only speculating at this point)..is there any reason I would have to wait until October to get them done or could I do it as soon as I know the date for interview?

You get results back in 4 to 5 days. It's a one day process. If you choose to have HEP A shots you can have the followup shots when you get t US. You don't have to have there.

You can not get medical until you get interview. And the validity of you visa to enter US starts when you have medical you have 6 months from medical to enter.

Yes you can do the medical soon as you get your interview. No wahala.

The children's practice is forcing getting the vaccines unless the person has records, regardless of what the US Law says. They will not release the results without the vaccines. My finance is in Lagos now getting it done. It is a day to have the physical part and a day to read the results and get the vaccines. Walk-ins only. The examination is 16K NGN and the vaccines are up to 35K NGN. Go figure. They are making their money off the forced optional vaccines. UGH.

More on the medical exam and police certificate.......

So apparently the consent form allows for the doctor to conduct any number of test he or she wishes and you just have to pay. My fiance got an eye exam and questions about his vision, etc. If you don't consent to allow the doctor to probe whatever for whatever reason, the doctor can deny the patient an exam. People line up starting an hour or two in advance so if you arrive at 8am, you will be way behind in the line.

The police certificate regular is 6000NGN. However, you will not get it done. There is a lady there that will stone wall you until you agree to do the expedite (more than a week anyway) for 12000K. I am sure that this is probably just the standard service with her 6000NGN tip.

My fiance lives in the south so he had to take a cab almost everywhere in Lagos. He arrived in Ojota and the cam fare was trying to charge him about 7500NGN but he was able to talk it to 3500NGN. The police station and the childrens practice are very close together.

I am unsure which hotel he stayed at but the cost was about 8500NGN. Hope this helps someone.
