When is the Medical Interview done?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is the medical done as part of the K1 interview?

Or is it something I need to schedule before the interview?

I know they will ask about or do vaccinations, but I don't get when she is supposed to actually do it.

The interview is in Moscow on Nov 1. We will get to Moscow on Oct 31, coming from her home town.

Does it have to be done in Moscow? Can we do it in Chelyabinsk?

Medical exam (it's not an interview, it's more like a wellness check-up, some tests and and lungs x-ray) has to be done in Moscow by approved medical organization, you can't do it in your fiancee hometown or any other clinic by your choice.

Furthemore, medical exam has to be done before the interview and has nothing to do with the Embassy or interview itself, and you need the results with you at the interview time. If there're no issues with medical, it can be done with results ready within one business day if you come in the early morning and pass all exam procedures before something like noon but if you just arrive Moscow 10.31 I don't see how you can make it happen. You need to arrive Moscow earlier to do the exam.

Also, if she gets the vaccinations done in her home city before the interview, what evidence does she have to bring that she had them done? Is there a particular form?

Not necessary as long as all completed list of her vaccinations will be certified by doctor in her local clinic and will have an original blue ink stamp of the clinic. Mine was written like this on the blank office paper sheet and it worked out.

All correct except one statement -- the medical exam can be done after the interview. My fiance had his done the following day.

Medical exam (it's not an interview, it's more like a wellness check-up, some tests and and lungs x-ray) has to be done in Moscow by approved medical organization, you can't do it in your fiancee hometown or any other clinic by your choice.
