Recommended Posts

Hello dears ,

I would love to get an insight about a situation that is bothering me so much.

My interview for IR immigrant visa is ready and I have to do the medical exam before..

I was in Amesterdam recently my husband US citizen and we have consumed cannabis , as brownies and also smoked .

I know on the medical exam they do blood test, I'm wondering if the check just for HIV and siphilis or other stuff lik THC ( cannabis )...

Well if the doc ask me if I ever consumed drugs , I will say no ( a white lie ) ...

My police records are clean , my medical record are clean , never been admited for any abuse of it kind

I will apreciate your feed backs before going into the medical exam

There is no "white lie" when it comes to immigration. There is only lying.

Yes they check for everything. Consumption of cannabis is a 1 year ban. LYING about using cannabis and being found out will lead to a lifetime ban.

Search the forum and you will see cases of people on here that are currently going through a ban for past use of drugs.

Ive seen people who are in their 40's and used "WEED" as a young teen 13 or so and were banned from the US .. Im wondering is their any kind of test they do that can go way back several years to prove you have ever used anything??? Or are the test they do only able to detect but so far back?
