Medical and interview stage in London

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do I absolutely need to wait for packet 3 to be mailed to me from the US Embassy in London before proceeding to have my medical and book my interview? I think I have everything I need In terms of case number etc and the rest of what I need to do is online and forms I've gathered etc now, so am I ok to go ahead and book? Or must I wait for packet 3?

Thank you so much in advance, this forum was the best discovery!

I have just gone through this process and i booked the medical and the interview before i received the 'packet 3'...

my advice would be to leave at least a week between your medical and interview in case of any issues with the medical. you may find that when you try to register an account online for your visa interview it may say not ready.

Make sure you have your police cert, 4 UK or US passport photos, vaccination records before you book your medical.

good luck, it really is a piece of cake!
