What happens after a second medical exam is requested for CR-1 visa?

Recommended Posts

I'm a US citizen. I applied for my husband to come to the US on December 18th, 2017. He completed his interview on August 2nd, 2018 in Islamabad, Pakistan. They put him under administrative processing, and we had yet to hear back from them for about 6 months. Now they requested he complete a second medical exam. I am wondering if they are asking for a second exam because the first one is expired, or because we'll get a decision back soon. I've heard rumors of people having to give medical examinations 3-4 times. I don't want my case to end up like that. I'm graduating May 18th, 2019, and I'm really hoping he'd be here for that. 

I don't know what to do at this point, I understand AP is a long process, but I'm not being provided with any helpful information from any government agencies. 

This is the e-mail that was sent: 



We have recently reviewed your immigrant visa case. To move forward, please provide us with the following: 

Updated medical examination reports from an Embassy-approved physician (These typically expire after 6 months. For more information, see travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/interview/interview-prepare/medical-examination.html.) 

Hope this information will be helpful. 

Sincerely,

Yes it means the first one has expired, and usually when a new medical is requested, it means they will issue the visa soon

The Moroccan embassy did not ask for a new medical until their security checks were done and they were  ready for a second interview

I know all embassies are different but i would prepare in case there will be a second interview

 

Did they keep his passport after the other interview?

After the first interview they kept his passport. So I’m hoping they issue a visa soon. I just don’t know how long it’s going to take because we sent his medical to the embassy the day after it was done.After the first interview they kept his passport.
