Medical exam in Amstedam - my experience

Recommended Posts

Today I had my medical for the purpose od K-1 visa in Amsterdam. There’s only one appointed GP’s office in the Netherlands for this purpose - Dr Schulte sr assisted by his wife and their son Dr Schulte. 

I was able to schedule an appointment within 2 weeks which I thought was pretty quick. Since my visa interview was not scheduled at that time yet, the GP’s assistant advised me to make sure my interview will take place at least 10 days after the medical.


The doctor’s office is located one block away from the US Consulate General in Amsterdam, about a 5-minute walk from the tram station Museumplein. 


My appointment was scheduled for 11:30 but I arrived early, at about 10:20 and was told I could come in already. After a 10min wait chatting with 3 other visa applicants in the waiting room, the young dr.Schulte took my blood (just 1 vial for syphillis test). 

My passport was checked and then it was my turn to fill in 3 or 4 forms (my name, DOB, address, passport nr and NVC case nr - I already had those numbers memorised by now😜), provide 4 US passport-size photos and return this to the assistant. I got a plastic container to provide a urine sample (tested for drugs).


Considering I was 4th in line, the assistant advised me to go the x-ray clinic first, so I didn’t have to just sit there waiting doing nothing. It’s a 15-min walk to the clinic, so I was back at the GP’s in about 45 minutes. 

Dr. Schulte discussed my health and history with me, then took my blood pressure and pulse, weighed me and checked my height (glad my BMI was fine, I wondered if they’re gonna follow my BMI when I’m in the US to see what American diet does to my body😜), auscultated my lungs and heart. 

Finally I got 2 vaccination shots, one in each arm. 

Then he explained to me that my results will be evaluated and a report will be sent to the US Consulate in about a week. I paid 210 euro for the examination + 75 euro for 2 vaccine shots (this has to be paid in cash). At the clinic I was charged 60 euro for the chest x-ray. 


I was done in 2 hours, the Schulte family were kind, friendly and helpful, so overall a good experience.

"Life is a journey." At this moment, it's taking me to the USA to the woman I love.
