Here's my question:

After my husband's medical, will he get the envelope to bring to the embassy? Will he be told if there are any problems or do they keep it a secret? His interview is 6 days after his medical.. I want to be sure this won't be a problem. I have heard some people say that they get the envelope to bring to the embassy and some people say the envelope is sent thru a courier?? Yes, I am stressing about every little detail!

Thanks!

Avoci,

not sure if it differs from country to country. I am having interview in Sydney next Monday. Medical results are given/mailed to beneficiary to take to the interview. If there was a "yes" in medical history disclosed i.e. hospitalisation, some medical condition that required treatment - medical examiner sends results directly to the consulate. They are not given to the applicant.

If your husband is not given his results, as long as the doctor is aware of his interview date, I think results would be waiting for him at the consulate. Are you still worried :)

So, u are saying that if he doesn't get the envelope it probably means there is a problem?

You really need to find out from someone who went through your Consulate!

In Athens, you must take the medical three business days before the interview, to allow time for the doctor to send the info to the Embassy.

In other places, the result is given to the applicant.

Elsewhere, it can be on the same day/day before the interview and the doctor send it to the Embassy.

I don't see how you make the leap to "So, u are saying that if he doesn't get the envelope it probably means there is a problem?"

The medical is checking for certain STDs and up to date vax. Yes, they look for other things & I remember one woman discovered she had a serious heart condition as a result of taking the medical, but anything else they'd find, he would likely know about.

Denial resulting from a medical is quite rare, and you would be offered a remedy before a denial.

Varies from country to country, doctor to doctor. I picked up my results in person 2 days after. The doctor I went to told me that if there was a problem with anything they would tell me when I picked it up so I could start a course of medication if applicable. I also paid for a 2nd complete copy so I could see what my results were. If you're worried, ask your husband to ask if he can pay for a 2nd copy of the results. Just make sure the sealed one stays sealed.

Your best bet is to have your husband ask the doctor's office about their procedures (e.g., if he can pick it up, what happens if they discover a problem, etc.).

Avoci,

thats not what I'm saying. I meant, if he is not given the envelope - making sure that the doctor is aware of his interview date will hopefully help results reach consulate in time for the interview.

As far as there being a "problem" - my understanding from my own medical was that because of past condition/treatment which I had some years ago I was put in a certain "category" and got sent directly to the consulate. When I questioned it they told me: it simply means "tick A - send to applicant; tick B - send to consulate" kind of thing. And they actually told me all my results were fine. But because "once upon a time"... they had to put particular "yes" in medical history.

Not getting envelope doesn't automatically mean no visa. But some people do, some don't - get envelope but not visa. Or the other way around. Having fun with words here :)
