Embassy medical exam and interview conflicting outcomes

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife passed her medical exam on 9/27; the doctor told her on the spot. At the embassy interview today, she was told that no decision had been made and that more medical records had been requested. There was also a reference to "an American panel of doctors" who wanted this information. Needless to say, this was grave news. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks.

I find it odd that she was told there and then at the medical that she had “passed”. They take good and urine and it needs to be analyzed by a lab for STDs. The outcome of such tests isn’t known immediately. 


Just noticed that that she’s from the U.K. so I assume the medical was at Knightsbridge Doctors? They don’t have a lab on site and send the samples away so there’s no way she was told on the spot that she had “passed”. There is also the x-ray images which need to be interpreted. When I had mine at Knightsbridge I was told that they would call me if any problems and if I don’t hear anything after 5 days to assume all is well. The 20-odd other people there that day were all told the same also.
