Medical in London experience today.

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I went to London Knightsbridge today for my medical and wanted to share my experience to let others know there really isn't anything to worry about if your prepared.

The place was easier to find than I thought ( Also beware if your a Disney fan like me...the store is on route and a deadly place to go waste some time and costly too as the case was for me today ).

The receptionist was lovely. We had a chat and giggle over a few things as she took copies of my paperwork at the desk. She provided me with more paperwork, a questionnaire that's a little more in depth than the one you do in advance, a consent form and a pre check form and my pot for urine sample. I did my paperwork in the waiting room, took care of the urine sample took it all back to the desk and then was told to wait back in the waiting room.

Shortly a gentleman doctor called me in. We chatted over the questionnaire, he didn't ask many questions (but i have a simple medical history) and we chatted mostly about my plans and where I was moving too as he took the blood sample. He was very good, didn't feel a thing! Took about 5/10 mins then when finished back to the waiting room for the next stage.

Then another gentleman called me down about 5/10 mins later for the chest x ray part. Again very friendly, we chatted and laughed about a subject we discussed. Very simple procedure and again took no more than 5/10 mins and all done and back to the waiting room to wait for the nurse for the vaccinations review.

Another 5/10 mins and I was called down. We went over what I had and needed. Opted for the missing ones to be done there so paperwork was all in order for later. Again very friendly lady, chatted and laughed about things. Then back to the waiting room to wait for the receptionist to take payment and hand over paperwork that will be needed for AOS. Took just over an hour for the whole thing.

All that stressing and worrying over the past week for nothing. A very friendly and professional service. Except for 2 dead arms now it was painless!

Now to spend the next week needlessly stressing probably about the interview stage lol

Hope this review can help others relax a little about this stage!

Hey Helen, 

Been waiting for your review after you'd commented on a previous post regarding the experience and I'm glad you found it very similar to me. 

 

The interview next for certain, thankfully that's not freaking me out so much at all (yet), but there's this week and weekend for that to happen yet. 

 

All the best for the next stage and I'm sure we'll bump into one another again

Hindsight is always 20/20 though isn't it. 

I have been pretty calm since booking my interview until around yesterday and now my nerves appear to have ramped up...but it's not far now. 

 

I will be sure to write a post regarding all of it on here once I'm back home and (hopefully) stopped doing kartwheels and whooping! :)

Also a guy spoken to on here throughout the process has his the same date & time as mine, so we'll be going for a celebratory drink after

without starting another thread, what are the documents required for K1 visa interview ? Why im asking .. theres different answers on this site (including the sticky post - maybe needs updating?) Theres also different info on the official webpage for instance, they dont mention to bring DS 160, but ive seen others mention they were asked for this when turning up.The embassy only say to bring (for most people) -

 

Passport

2 photos

Birth certificate + copy

ACRO + copy

I-134 / evidence of financial support (+ copies?)

 

Im thinking the above plus the DS 160 is enough as they have the rest of your info already, but if theres anything else id love to know !

The embassy webpage should be your source of what documents to bring. However, they leave off info you are told to bring when you complete various things.

 

You get a confirmation for submitting the DS-160 which says to print and bring. Also you get confirmations of paying the visa fee and booking the courier and of your appointment date.  Bring the confirmations just to have "receipts" so to speak that you have done those things.

 

They say bring copies of personal documents (birth certificate, police certificate, divorce decree) but they don't seem to actually want those anymore. They used to keep the paper copy for the file and give back your original. Now they look at originals and scan them instead before handing back.

 

No to copies of the I-134. They keep that so make a copy for your records.

 

(Assuming you don't have any name change, military service, translations, or prior marriages so your short list is correct, plus the confirmation print outs)
