CR1 Visa and medical exams duration

Greetings all!

 

So my visa has been issued on Feb 27th and got the passport back. Because I tend to be an overthinker I wanted to ask, the visa is valid until Aug 5th, is this a normal thing ? In the sense aren't visas durations usually in month segments? (for example a 5 month one to expire on Jul 27th).

 

Also a probably silly question. Is the medical exam duration counted in calendar months or in some other way? Mine was on Feb 6th, so the proper way to calculate would be that is it is valid until Aug the 6th?

 

Thank you, I am pretty sure the answer will be something obvious but I guess the embarassment will only last for a bit :)

It’s usually 6 months after the medical, as that has a validity of 6 months.

Ah I see so probably the officer had the visa expire on the same day my medical did to avoid confusion.

Not as much to avoid confusion as it being the latest legally allowed option for an IR/CR visa. 🙂
