Hello Everyone,

I'm just curious, I have my medical tomorrow in London and was just thinking...

"I wonder if anyone has ever failed to get their Visa because of failing the medical"

I'm a fit & healthy person and have always come out OK on every other medical I have done, so there shouldn't be a problem.

I was more interested in what they are actually looking for and if any poor soul has had a problem with it and didn't get their visa !!!

Perish the thought...

Cheers

James

What if someone had an undetected communicable disease such as Hepatitis(fairly common in some parts of the world) which is treatable? Would they be completely denied or would the visa be issued pending treatment?

Good question on the hepatitis....don't know the answer.

As far as the Diabetes....I don't know the exact answer to that one. But, Andre was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia when he was 11. He has had medical treatment and/or hospitalization for about 10 episodes while in Jamaica. He was honest about it. He was not denied.

Since arrival in the U.S. in June of last year, he had one episode. It also did not effect AOS.

That's my 2 cents on this topic.

NO :no: Diabetes is not a communicable disease and poses no health risks to others.

They test for it by drawing blood.

Isn't the only way to fail the medical a disease that could put in health risks to others???

And a failed drug test during the medical.

Oh, and I have heard people with a history of some mental disorder like a suicide attempt or cutting, even if it was LONG ago, being turned down on occassion.

Yeah, you're right. I forgot to mention that.

I also remember someone from VJ who's fiancee admitted having used some kind of drug from her country 1 or two times like 3 or 4 years ago, even though she passed the drug test, she got denied at the embassy!!!!

So whatever you did in your past, if you got drunk, did drugs, try to kill yourself or anything, say no!!! hahaha!!! Whatever happens 4, 6, 10 years ago it's old but it matters to them you know!

Exactly right:-). There are others with diabetes who have been through this process as well.

They are looking for medical conditions that pose a risk to others.

Section 221(g ) Classes of Aliens Ineligible for Visas or Admission. (1) Health-related grounds.-

http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/ineligib...ities_1364.html

Example: the person has AIDS, or TB

They are also looking for anything that might cause the person immigrating to be a drain on Medicaid or public assistance.

My husband was initially denied because he had suffered a heart attack within 3 months of his medical. He had stents placed and was not on any restrictions by his physician, but the Embassy was worried that since he didn't have health insurance in place in the US, he might need medical care and not be able to pay for it himself.

His medical records from his doctor stating that he was "revascularized" and had passed a cardiac stress test were not sufficient. It was only after I intervened and assured them I would be adding him to my insurance after he arrived (and spoke with several people at the Embassy over a period of a week) that they finally relented and allowed him to receive his Visa. Also, we offered up proof that he had travel insurance which would cover him until he was settled in the US.

So it is not just about communicable diseases, it is also about money. Uncle Sam does not want to have to pay out for someone who has not paid into the sytem yet!
