Medical BEFORE interview is scheduled?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have a lot of unknowns happening .. between the medical (most likely at psych exam too), unknown travel and family stuff...

Anyway,, I heard on a FB group that we can get the medical (and psych) BEFORE even dealing with the interview.

BUT

I also heard we must have the interview scheduled before we can get the medical.

Which is correct?

Or maybe they are both wrong and the truth is something else.

Any helpful ideas on where/how to find out?

Yes, I realize I could do that... but that was not what I need to know.

I'm asking if I can do the medical BEFORE making any interview appointment or making the visa payment.

Or

Must I have already paid and scheduled the interview prior to the medical.

Oh sorry i thought i kinda make myself clear. lol well it is a must to do the medical BEFORE the interview. First you have to pay the visa fee and set an appointment date for you interview because when you go to SLEC for the medical ,the Appointment confirmation page of your interview date is one thing they are asking for. Hope this helps.

They will ask for your interview appointment letter at the Medical Exam.... at least that's what it was like for me. So I guess, it's best to have your interview date scheduled before your medical exam AND have the letter in hand.

You can't do SLEC without an interview appointment. So set the interview appointment before trying to do SLEC. And if you think you'll have to do a psych eval, then set the interview out far enough to have time for the psych eval.

You need EITHER copies of the interview confirmation page/email OR the NVC letter for your medical. If you do not have your interview scheduled then you need to have the letter/email from NVC.

So YES you could complete the medical before scheduling the interview, IF you have the NVC letter.
