Indonesia TB Testing

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share my experience on a K-1 Visa application.  On the medical exam at Premier Bintaro in March 2018, the Dr. suspected that my beneficiary had TB.  They proceeded to do the sputum test, (results three months later,) were positive.  Options for treatment of six months at their hospital and the proceed with the testing or a wait of at least one year if not done at their hospital.  The treatment of six months at their hospital was not an option as beneficiary lived  and worked in Sumatra.  Treatment started in July 2018 and finished on December 2018.  Called Premier Bintaro to reschedule medical exam and they said, must wait until December 2019 to continue medical exam.  This is actually a year and a half after diagnosis and a year after treatment completed.  Contacted the US Embassy and informed them of this issue and they informed me that they will keep petition open until the Medical Exam is completed.

Yes.  This is standard for having the DOT treatment at a place other than the approved facility.   It is  6mos. of treatment plus one year waiting period.   Many times misunderstood. 


YMMV
