  1. Hey everyone... I had my medical today. I have old self-harm scars on my wrist (they're like 15 years old) and she spent a long time asking me about them, like if I've ever attempted suicide or been hospitalized. I said no... I asked her if this influenced the process in any way and she said no, did not refer me to a psychological evaluation or at least she didn't mention it at this stage. I've done every test and she told me she'll contact me to get my results. Do you guys think I'm clear or am I in trouble? Could she still refer me to the psychological evaluation at this point? Edit: I've already gotten my shots also. My interview is on the 18th.
  2.

  3. Hey everyone, Thought I would do a quick review of my experience with Dr. Lyndon Mascarenhas for the US immigration medical, as reading about other people’s experiences on here was really helpful to me. I received an email on October 15th saying my interview date had been scheduled for November 18th. That same day I emailed Dr. Lyndon Mascarenhas office and Dr. Ian Zatzman. I received a response back from both offices within a few hours. Dr. Lyndon’s office said they could fit me in October 21st at 2:15 pm, so I ended up finalizing an appointment with them. (Earliest appt available with Dr. Zatzman was Nov 5th). The actual medical was a breeze and super quick. Office was easy to find. I arrived around 1:30 pm and was asked to fill out some paperwork. I then provided one passport photo, my vaccine checklist and interview letter to the receptionist and was asked to take a seat. Around 2:00pm I was called into the room and was asked to fill out a questionnaire (had a bunch of yes or no health related questions on there). About 10 minutes later, Dr. Lyndon came in. He was super nice and friendly. Asked if I was healthy overall, to which I responded yes. He checked my blood pressure and asked about my profession. Whole thing took less than 5 minutes. He then handed me a blood sample test tube and urine sample bottle and some paperwork. Instructed me to go to the basement level for an X Ray and then LifeLabs around the corner for blood work/urine sample. I paid my fees (350 + 50 for courier + 1 for using a debit card = $401) with the receptionist and proceeded downstairs for the x-ray. I was in and out in 10-15 minutes as there wasn’t much of a wait. Then headed over to LifeLabs. It was quite busy at the time and I had to wait about 30 minutes. Not too bad. The actual sample collection took a few minutes. All in all, I finished everything by 3:15 pm. I received an email from the receptionist today that my results have been mailed out, with tracking info. It should arrive tomorrow. So I waited a total of 6-7 business days for my results to be processed and sent out. Overall, the process was much easier than expected. I’d highly recommend Dr. Lyndon Mascarenhas, his office was professional and seems to be well run.
  4. I had my medical yesterday at Knightsbridge’s and my experience echos the positive accounts shared by other users. It’s nowhere near invasive as one would imagine and the people working there really are lovely. One thing that really made the experience an easy one (other than turning up with everything they asked for) was the medical letter I acquired from my GP regarding my long history of depression and agoraphobia. The physician conducting the medical assessment remarked that the letter was excellent and provided all the necessary information. The only question I was asked was if I had received counselling to which my answer was no, I wasn’t questioned any further. If you need a medical letter from your GP especially from one that doesn’t know you (as was the case with me) consider providing them with this outline and a note explaining your history in your own words and how you currently feel. It might provide some helpful insight and gives them something to refer to once you have left. This is the outline I provided the GP with as the basis for my letter: Diagnosis? Treatment? Duration of treatment and illness? Any prior or subsequent mental health or illness? Have there been any incidents of self harm, harm to others or suicide attempts? What is the prognosis and your opinion of the patients mental state. Is she a risk to herself or to others? I used my appointment to discuss my history and current mental state and explained that these questions needed to be addressed in the letter which they were and she even included parts of the note which I wasn’t expecting. I know it won’t guarantee the same results but it helped me and the Knightsbridge physician’s reaction made it feel worth sharing. 🤓
  5. So having put my original post in the wrong forum I have started over and I am asking a few extra questions regarding the UK medical requirement on the summary care. Do the medical people want all of the information in the consultations, or is it up until that point? If they want all of that information, has anyone that has previously had depression etc had issues at the medical because of what was in that section? Also how far back do they want me to go, I only just registered at my local GP in February 2021 and they are still waiting or some info so I have emails of around 22 pages worth of different summaries. Any help gratefully received!!
  6. Hi there, Since the COVID stuff they emailed my medical results to the consulate directly, but gave me an unsealed envelope with my vaccination record and xray CD, is that okay? Also should I bring the envelope with me to the consulate for the interview? Thank you.
  7. Has anyone ever tried to complete the medical exam before their interview at the embassy was scheduled and, if so, did doing so result in any problems during the interview or during entry to the United States? This question is in connection with a CR-1 application being processed via the Warsaw embassy. The medical exam was completed before the case even became documentarily qualified by the NVC and the interview has still not yet been scheduled to-date. That said, the interview should be scheduled during the six month window within which the medical exam is allegedly valid for entry to the United States. While the State Department website recommends scheduling the medical exam once the interview is scheduled, there does not seem to be anything strictly prohibiting one from doing so earlier; in any event, it would be helpful to know if anyone else has attempted this and whether doing so was successful or resulted in a problem. As an aside, the embassy-approved doctor did not provide any sealed, hard-copy results; should they have or are the results somehow transmitted electronically between the doctor and the embassy?
  8. there are four applicants in our f4 visa category and two of us along with the principal applicant gave our interview and one applicant was left due to medical reasons then due to administrative processing all of our medicals expired again and now our administrative processing is complete and they're ready to issue the visa but we've to do medical and the principal applicant along with two applicants will submit there medical before the one remaining applicant because she will be in tb culture test processing for two months and my question is that will three of us be issued our visa before her since she's not the principal applicant? or will be have to wait with her for two months even though administrative processing is complete?
  9. Hi everyone I'm a bit new here and i have a question. So we've done biometrics and waiting on AOS interview date. My question is will my husband need a new medical exam. We sent his i485 forms in March 2020 and he got a medical exam done here in the US January 2020 beacuse he was missing vaccines from his overseas medical exam and we just wanted to be on the safe side. The wait has been longer than expected because we got an RFE and than we missed his biometrics appointment due to the notification arriving after his appointment date and online it never updates. Luckily that's done and now waiting for the next step. So we just want to be on the safe side and not have to make things longer. I've read that as long as its hasn't been ober a year when filing form i485? which it was not at the time of filing but with all the delays it's been over year now 😰and counting.
  10. so our interview, K1 AOS, was 2 months ago. it went well other than the fact that her medical was missing. she had a copy of her immunization, but medical packet was given to officer at the airport. Our IO said she doesn't have my wife's medical. My case status is still under review. I was told to call USCIS after 60 days, But I haven't been able to get through. Her EAD and AP has expired because I didn't reapply 'till after interview, I wasn't expecting anything to go wrong. But its been applied now so we wait, she is not working so we are okay. My question is what can I expect, since only thing that was missing was her medical. ours is straight forward case so I dont see anything else stopping us. I haven't received any letter or email from uscis. I know that USCIS website says we cant make Info pass appointments online. I wish i could just get her medical done again and send it to uscis already. Extra question when can we expect to receive her EAD. Since it was reapplied it shouldn't take as long. They used her old biometrics. Thank you.
  11. Hello, all! Has anyone had a medical exam done in London or do you know what the process is usually like? My fiancé has been getting tests done to see if he may have a heart condition which his sister recently passed away from. He has high heart rate and the tests they’ve had him do haven’t really come up with anything. What is the process like for the visa medical and would his high heart rate be a problem?
  12. Any thoughts as to what will happen when the Embassies start doing interviews and the medical exams are now over six months old, will they require a whole new medical exam?
  13. Hello everyone I am scheduled for my visa interview at us embassy addis ababa on may 11 I got the interview letter on april 28th I did my medical on 29th april but they told me that the medical won't be ready for my interview,what do i do ? Please help
  14. I recently filed an I-130 for my wife at the US Embassy London under exceptional circumstances. The filing was accepted and the officer at our appointment said we should expect to get a case number and instructions for a medical and interview within weeks. We’d like to travel ASAP (hence our method of filing), so we’re getting together the documents we need in order to be good to go. Part of our exceptional circumstances claim was that my wife should not be separated from me for a long period due to her mental health. She’s an NHS worker and the stresses of the pandemic caused her issues with sleeplessness, depression, and anxiety. She received therapy, had to take medical leave from work for 4 months, and was put on one type of antidepressant that would also help with her sleep. Though her condition is improved, there is a worry of regression if she and I have to be separated for months, given that it’s just the two of us living together. She’s back at work now, and her antidepressant dose is being pulled back (should be at the lowest possible dosge in a month) because her medication has to be slowly reduced to avoid complications. And her therapist has said that she seems to be at a point where further sessions won’t be necessary. She’s never been unstable in any way. She’s never had a risk of hospitalization from her condition. She’s never been threatening to anyone. And she’s never been a danger to herself. She simply had to deal with horror on a daily basis at work during a pandemic, and that proved unhealthy for her mental state to the point where she couldn’t work for a bit. The question is, as she’s still prescribed a small dosage of her medication, should we obtain a note from her GP about her condition for when she gets her medical? If so, what information should we ask the GP to include. Of course we don’t want to tell the doctor what to write. But we’d like to be able to give him some questions to answer in his report so that his job is as easy as possible and we get what we need.
  15. Good day all! I am seeking answers from kind-hearted souls who might have the time/experience to help me with my issues. My fiance and I have been confirmed as interview candidates by the US embassy Dublin after successfully filing the K1 visa through the NVC. We have started working on the additional documentary requirements for the process going forward but I have a couple of dilemmas on my side that I need advice on. One being that I can't find/have no access to all my vaccination records. I am not an Irish citizen but rather an IRP holder. I wouldn't have vaccination records access from home either. Would that be a big issue with scheduling your Medical exam through the Mater private? Or do they offer vaccinations that are required for the immigration process? Two is that my passport is only currently on an extension stamp from the consulate here. My trips home to sort that out have been cancelled several times due to the ongoing pandemic. Unfortunately, there is no passport renewal system here in Ireland. I have to travel outside the country. The extension is valid til next year. I am wondering if that will pose as an issue to the immigration officers during the interview? I have heard that people have been denied access into their ports of entry with extension stamps. Thirdly, how did you go about scheduling your medical vs. interviews? I have read from an entry here in visa journey that it is advisable that the medical be scheduled first but on reading the requirements from the Mater pvt website, it states that you need: I'm sorry if these questions have been answered already. I will gladly follow any links to old posts anyone would kindly send my way. Also, don't lose hope to those who are still waiting for their approval notices!! It will come. Just hang in there!
  16. Hello, our AOS interview was on 04-22-21. Interview went well for the most part but the Medical package, that was submitted at POE, was missing. Now they are waiting for it. EAD expires on 06-18-21. I had the paperwork ready but then we received the interview letter, so we held off ead renewal. Is it to late to file for EAD/AP now, because the Interview has been done? can i still file for ead renewal? anything special that i have to submit ? I know medical going missing is not unheard off but how often do they find it? would it be premature to start on i-693 ? Thank you.
  17. We have received the NOA2 and are awaiting word for the interview and medical exam in Rio. My girlfriend has asked me to attend the interview which I will do but our question is about the medical exam. I only have enough time to arrive and attend the interview. Can someone tell me the timeline on getting the medical exam? Must the beneficiary have the results of the exam when attending the interview? I will arrive on Saturday, travel with her to Rio for the interview which I understand is always on Tuesday. Can she get the medical exam on Monday and have the interview on Tuesday? This is very important because I can only stay in Brazil for 4 or 5 days.
  18. Hi all, my visa just got issued today but my passport is still at the embassy. Now my question is, can I leave few days before my visa and medical expires? I underwent sputum that's why the validity of my medical is only for 3 months. Had my interview on January 22 and the visa just got issued today. My medical will be expiring on March 12 and since I don't have my passport yet, and there are few things I still needed to do, I don't think I'll be able to leave soon. Will there be a problem if I leave a week or maybe 4 days before my medical expires? Thank you for the response!
  19. Medical Date/Time: March 30th, 2021 / 11:30am. Type of Visa: K-1 Visa medical. Total duration: 2 hours. Gender: Male. When I arrived a few minutes before my appointment time, there was a lady sitting outside of the entrance to the clinic on the 22nd floor checking people in. I gave my 5 passport photos, vaccinations records, interview confirmation letter, and confirmation of payment for the interview. Once I was accepted in I went to the receptionist who took my driver's license and photocopied it (they asked for my passport but any government-issued photo ID is acceptable), gave me back my vaccination records, and given a stack of forms fill out. I don't remember how long I waited after giving back the forms but I was then called by a nurse who checked over my vaccination record again and said it was very rare for someone to have all their vaccinations done beforehand; I suggest you vaccinate before going because the prices range from $50-100 (I had MMR, Hep A + B, flu, TD - tetanus and diphtheria without the pertussis because this was a booster shot, every other vaccine was taken care of as a child), took my blood, height and weight measurements, eye test both with and without my glasses, and a urine sample. I went back to the waiting room until another nurse came to do my chest x-ray for turburculosis. I went back to the waiting room again until the doctor called for me. I was told to remove everything except for my boxers (I feel like I could've gotten away with wearing shorts over my boxers). I was asked questions regarding my health history, ears/blood pressue/lungs/lymph nodes near armpits/2 spots around the groin and abdomen were checked. I paid a total of $540 even though the website says $595. The x-ray CD and vaccination records (if you had any done there) are sent to your home address and the medical envelope is sent to the embassy. Reply if you have questions and a like if this helped you 🙂
  20. Hello all! I got my medical done on March 25. There was a mixup with my bloodwork so I had to do it again this past week. I just called today and they said the x ray report still hasn’t come back, which I did on March 25. My interview is in two days. Has anyone else experienced delays with the medical results like this? I’m freaking out because I only have today and tomorrow to pick up my results.
  21. Hello Everyone i am so relieved that i have found visajourney and wish i knew about it years ago already. My fiance and I are Going through the K1 visa process since around march 2019 and we are currently at the 8th step according to (https://rapidvisa.com/k1-visa-process/) "Step 8. Medical Exam The fiance must have a medical exam. The package sent to the fiance by the U.S. Embassy will explain how to schedule the medical exam. You must pay a fee for the medical exam. The fee is usually paid in the local currency and varies depending on the location. You (the U.S. citizen) do nothing at this step. This fee can’t be paid from the United States." But I had not scheduled an appointment because of personal reasons and The global pandemic starting in 2020. My question is if I have to start From step1 again (USC IS Filing) since it's been almost 2 years when I have received the Letter to go get a medical examination. OR if I still have the chance/possibility to schedule an appointment for a medical exam and continue with an interview after receiving the exam Letter. I have not found any information if there is some sort of expiration date for the k1 process if it takes me too long to get all my documents together which are required for the interview, all i found was that the medical exam expires 6 months AFTER taking it but not BEFORE. OR is there maybe a way to "extend" the K1 visa so i dont have to start from step1 again ? PLEASE free to ask me any further questions if something is not clear i am really hoping that somebody has an ansquer to my questions.
  22. Due to a self harm scar from when i was age 12 (10 years ago) the medical examiners requested a short email directly from my gp stating my current mental health. after contacting my GP, my GP (UK) is refusing to provide an email to the medical examiner about whether or not I have mental health issues both past or ongoing. is there an alternative way for the visa medical examiners to confirm my mental health is okay for the visa?
  23. My medical examination schedule is March 19, 2019. I arrived in Manila on March 18 and stayed in Time Travellers Hotel near St. Lukes Extension Clinic. Its a nice hotel with a good price. Good air conditioning, with table and chairs, nice queen sized bed, it has fridge with 2 complimentary bottled water, nice shower with heater, they also provide toiletries(toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and conditioner) with 2 bath towels. It also has telivision but no cable. The wifi is only for 1 day use and for one phone only. 1st DAY 3:30 AM - Rode a tricycle (i don't know what they call it coz its different from a tricycle) going to St lukes for less than a minute from the hotel where i stayed. I decided not to walk because some people said that it is dangerous to walk there specially when its dark because there are some pickpocketers. 3:31 AM - Fall in line. Luckily only few people where in line. 4:30-5 AM - Time to enter the building.. the guard took: My passport, 1 photocopy of my passport, 1 copy of NVC letter with MNL case number, 4 pcs 2x2 photo, and 1 copy of online registration form and handed me a number, I was number 36. (RED in color for one applicant and GREEN in color for 2 or more applicant (family or with child). Your photo should be 2x2 in size , not a passport size with white background and should be on glossy photo paper. No eye glasses, no earings or necklace its not allowed or else the guard will ask you to come back again. 5-5:30 AM - They started to call out numbers and assist me to the window on the 1st floor. On the window I gave the documents with my passport and pictures to the lady and then she asked some questions like: Am i married? Do i have kids? and Where in the US do i wish to travel? Then she for my right index finger for biometrics(4 times) & sign a paper, and asked me to look at the camera for picture. She gave me a checklist then asked me to proceed to 5th floor for payment. 6 AM - The guard on duty took my checklist and asked me to wait until she called my name then proceed to the cashier for payment. After paying, the cashier told me to go to 4th floor for blood & urine test. 6:45 AM - I gave the checklist to the reception area on the 3rd floor and they asked me for my passport and told me to wait. During blood test the nurse asked my name and who sponsored me to go to the U.S. then asked me when was the last time i peed and then told me to proceed to the urine test. (They were asking when was the last time you peed because it depends if your going to take the urine test right after the blood test or not, i guess it should be 1 hour before you last peed.) I proceed to the urine test area then the nurse took my checklist and asked my name and then she gave a container for urine sample. The urine sample must be just right amount.. not below the line.. and do not add water in it.. it can be over the line but just a little bit.. do not fill the container too much or else the nurse will ask you to repeat the test after 1 hour. Then the nurse gave back my checklist and told me to go to 3rd floor for Xray. 7:15 AM - I gave the checklist to the reception area on the 3rd floor then asked me to fill up a form. She also asked when was my last menstruation. (Write the exact date) I waited for my name to be called then the receptionist gave back my checklist and give a number and then told me to proceed to Xray room. I wore a hospital gown, removed my bra and tied my hair up. (Dont worry they have a dressing room. But dont leave your bag and clothes take it with you) Then wait again for my number to be called for Xray test. The nurse at the Xray room asked me to follow me the right breathing for the test. After the test the nurse told me to proceed to 2nd floor for immunization. 7:25 AM - I gave my checklist to the reception area on the 2nd floor then they gave a form to fill up and gave back to them and told me to wait for my name to be called. 9:30 AM - My name was called and ask me to proceed to the Doctors area on the immunization area. The doctor asked about my name, my birthday and age and my sponsor. She also asked about my past illnesses, if i take medicines, if i had vaccines, when was my first and last menstruation..etc.. basically about my health. You should listen attentively to the doctor. After that she asked me to proceed to 5th floor for physical exam. 9:35 AM - I gave my checklist to the guard then she put it in the box in the blood pressure area (i forgot what they call it) then i waited for my name to be called. 1st the nurse took my weight and height. wait for my name to be called again. 2nd took my blood pressure. wait again. 3rd proceeded to eye test then gave back my checklist and ask me to give it to the US counter.. and then wait again for my physical exam. 11:35 - The long wait is over.. The USA counter called my name and handed me a number and ask me to proceed to room 7. I waited again. Inside room 7, the doctor asked for my passport, sign on logbook, then asked me so many questions about: If i take medicines, if i have illnesses like tb..etc.., if i have allergies, (just like the questions in the doctors area) then the doctor asked if i had suicide attempts, what i finished in school.. and then she asked me to change to hospital gown and took off my socks, I didnt took off my underwear including my bra. The doctor ask me to lay down on the bed then she asked me to bend my knees and checked my abdomen, my wrist, then asked me to sit and checked my neck, then she told me to stand up and then she checked my lower back.. then thats it! I said thank you to the doctor. 11:55 - I gave my checklist to the USA counter on the 5th floor then wait again for my name to be called. 12:30 - My name was called and the lady ask me to go back tomorrow for my result. TIPS!! Food is not allowed inside the clinic so better to eat before your medical exam. You can bring water inside, if you didnt its okay because there are water fountains inside. Wear a comfortable clothes and shoes that are easily to take off. Do not wear complicated clothes or shoes. I suggest you wear slip on shoes. Bring jacket with you because its cold inside the clinic. Listen attentively. Leave your earphones behind. If you have past medications or baby book, bring it with you. Listen carefully and attentively to the nurses and doctors so it wont cause you any delay. 2nd day My time schedule is 9am but i went there at 7am. I went directly to the guard he took my checklist and stamp saying "immunization room 2nd floor" I went to 2nd floor and give my checklist to the reception area and wait my name to be called. My name was called then I proceed to Immunization room 2nd floor and the nurse ask for my passport, my name and when is my 1st and last menstruation what is the name of my fiance. Then i get my vaccines. (I had 2 vaccines, anti-tetanus and MMR.) The nurse ask me to proceed to 1st floor for my result. Then i waited for my name to be called. On window F the lady ask for my passport, my name, my address and ask me to check the documents if it has my correct name, address, MNL case number and passport number. Then she asked me to take pictures of the copy of my vaccination record using my phone.She handed me the envelope that says "DO NOT OPEN" that i have to bring to the interview (I think it contains all the records/results of my medical examination) Then she also handed me the vaccination record that i have to bring to the USA. I waited about 30-40 mins to get my vaccines and my results. For every tests i took i always pray and pray and pray.. until i get my result!! DON'T FORGET TO PRAY! GOOD LUCK!
  24. Hello all, my Fiance's visa is stuck in a wierd spot and I cannot find anyone to help or knows why, so I thought I'd ask the experts..... Last year in March of 2020 she had her interview scheduled along with her medical, so on a Tuesday she went and did her medical, then was asked if she would like to move up the date of her embassy interview due to the embassy needing to wrap up all the pending appointments before the covid shutdown, so she did the Embassy interview on the next day, Wednesday. It all went well, they took her passport saying they would get the medical results asap and get it issued and sent back. So 2 weeks goes by and she gets her passport back in the mail, with no visa, and a letter saying the embassy is shut down and to resubmit the passport for issuing visa at a later date. So we patiently waited till November 2020 and she got the letter finally saying to mail back the passport, and a few documents, nothing major, so we did that and have been waiting again now going on 3 months.... Now its today, Almost March of 2021. At this point she has contacted the embassy 3 times now, once every month, and while we get more info every time it still comes back to the same thing, the Embassy is waiting on receiving the medical evaluation from the Doctor. The status field was set to "Processing" but now has just been blank for quite some time. Every attempt to contact the hospital or doctor directly has also not worked, what makes it worse is that the embassy has been holding her passport so we cannot travel in the meantime. But my final question is that since it will have been almost 1 year since the medical exam, will she need to do another one anyways? Or will we still be stuck waiting for the previous one? (Her embassy is Moscow) Any information is very much appreciated, thank you!
  25. My wife (and I) had her AOS interview just recently on December 12, 2020. We just got an RFE letter (sent on Dec 31), saying "you must submit a complete form I-693... that shows that you received the Influenza vaccine." She had her K-1 immigration medical exam before coming to the U.S. on 9/30/2019 (when it was NOT flu season), so she didn't get a flu shot. On her DS-3025, it stated she completed all her vaccination requirements. We filed AOS within one year of her overseas medical so we didn't fill out an I-693. We just sent her DS-3025 paperwork with the I-485 AOS package. Shouldn't her flu shot still be waived since her medical exam wasn't during flu season? Do we have to find a civil surgeon and have him give her just the flu shot and fill out the I-693? Will the DS-3025 be valid for her other vaccinations or is she going to have to go through a whole medical/vaccination exam again? Her overseas medical exam expires on 3/29/2021, which is the date we have to turn in the RFE. Thank you.
