Hello,

My fiancee and I are in the final stages of the K1 visa process. Recently a nurse at a clinic in Bangkok recommended that we wait and get two of the inoculations after arriving in the U.S. However, every related website that I've visited specifically states that the inoculations must be completed before traveling to the U.S. Is there more flexibility that I am aware of or was the information from the nurse incorrect?

 

Please accept my thanks in advance for your responses.

Respectfully,

Plumer

You can get them done in the US, a hassle and money issue but doable.

Much, much easier having everything medical related completed before entering the US. 

 

Like Boiler said, it's possible to do it here, but not recommended.

Vaccinations are not strictly required for a K-1 visa since it's technically a non-immigrant visa. They are required for immigrant visas and AOS.

 

That said, getting a Civil Surgeon in the US to sign off on vaccinations only (not a whole new medical) can be a challenge, and likely costs considerably more.

It may also depend on the fiance age,  the older they are, the less they are required to get, and also the flu shot is not given if outside the realm of the season.  I have to agree with the others though,  easier and cheaper if you get them there and not in the US.
