k1 visa medical RFE question

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Just wondering my fiance already passed her interview but pending medical exam results because the doctors have found something unusual in chest x ray. She has been tested for TB and we are waiting  for the results have been told 10 weeks to get the results. Anxiously waiting for the results and hoping and praying for good results. The doctors has informed her that if they find something then they will give her a call. Its been about 3 weeks since she completed the test. Is it safe to guess that the results will come back good?  Or should we just wait for the results to come back because obviously if the results come back and they do not call her then its a good result. Also wondering because I'm wanting to buy her flight back here. I'm going to be flying out there to visit her and follow her to take care of the result at the consulate and hopefully be able to bring her back but I have been checking ticket prices and they are getting more and more pricey as the days goes by. So wondering if I should just go ahead and book the flight and if needed cancel later on.

No. They are probably fine as most sputum results determine, but there's no way to know the results until they come in. It could come back positive at week 7 nearly as easily as week 3 or 4.


It is not suggested to purchase tickets before the visa is in hand. There's several things that could result in missing said flight. Some examples include:

1) Positive TB result -> 6 months of treatment

2) Inadmissibility discovered/determined

3) Extended AP

4) Issues with delivery (i.e. package gets lost or damaged in transit)

5) Mistake on the visa
