Few questions regarding interview/medical and then entry on a K-1

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I have my medical next week (yay!) and wanted to know (Jerusalem, Israel):


- How likely is it that I will be required to take some tests again (urine test specifically)?

- If I do, will they let me know immediately? Or before my interview itself (which is in 2 weeks?)

- Should I bring medicine I am currently taking to the medical itself?


After the interview (in 2 weeks):


- How long does it take to get a yes/no? Do I get that information right away from the interviewer? If so, how long for the visa itself to be issued, a matter of days?


After I enter the US with the K-1 (May 2017):


- How do I apply for a SSN?

- How quickly can I file for AOS? Also, is there some kind of guide as to applying for AOS?

- Is there anything else I should file/do after I enter besides the above?

- Should I hire a lawyer for these things or is it easy enough to do by myself?



Thanks a lot! :)

- Very unlikely you have to take a test twice. If you do, unlikely they will be able to tell you immediately as they do not process stuff immediately.

- Yes, bring current prescription drugs to show you take them legally.


- Depends on the embassy and your case. Often, they tell you if you are approved at the interview. For visa issuance, count on at least two weeks; it can easily be more though.


- Check our AOS Guide here:  http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos  and alread read up on the AOS forum here:  http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/7-adjustment-of-status-green-card-from-family-based-visas/
