  2. Hi everyone! As we all know, everything has been stuck in the process. Very unfortunate times for us who almost had our interviews. But maybe there's a reason behind this? All we can do is wait. Anyways, I was thinking about my medical exam results. If this situation really worsens, I am worried my results would "expire" as it is only valid for 6 months. I took it this March so that would be September. Maybe a bit far but from what my husband and relatives are telling me about the situation there, I'm thinking for the worst. So here. If I do get my visa, given I can have my interview maybe late May or June (which is what's feasible here in the Philippines for now), the visa expiry wouldn't matter right? I would still need to enter the US before my medical expiry date? Any input would help. Thank you!
  3. Hi! I filed for AOS (based on a K1) in November and tonight my status changed to "Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview" which is very exciting! So now I'll make sure I have everything for my interview. My question is: do I need to bring a DS-3025 to my interview? I didn't receive a copy when I did my medical. It was just put in my sealed envelope and sent to USCIS. I haven't gotten an RFIe regarding my medical, which should mean that they have my medical documents.
  4. Hey I’ve my interview in few days, and I just got a fungal skin infection, Like there’s just few spots appeared and I rushed to the hospital, but they’ve taken my blood samples and urine already, now I’ve my second visit scheduled. Which is going to be medical examination and vaccines. Now the doctor just found out that I got fungal infection of skin, and wrote me some medicines. Haven’t started yet, what should I do?? Can I be denied due to this!! I’m panicking rn, they obviously will see the spots over my arms.
  5. Hi all, I recently got married on a K1 fiancee visa and am currently filling out the forms for Adjustment of Status, but I'm a bit puzzled as to what documents are needed for the medical. I had my medical examination in the UK on October 10th 2019, a little over 5 months ago. It is to my understanding that I don't need to file the I-693 since my medical was less than a year ago, is this correct? I was given a sealed medical packet along with my K1 visa, is this to be submitted here? I have a sheet from my medical in the UK listing my vaccinatons and whatnot, should this be included as proof of vaccinations? I have a disc with my chest X-ray on it from my medical that was given to me at my K1 interview in London, is this to be included too? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you

  7. Good day guys! My husband went to SLEC recently but was asked to come back after a month for a psych eval. During his medical, he divulged to the MD that he used illegal drugs such as marijuana when he was in college and that was years ago and he only did it once. He was pressured by his friend at the time but he NEVER tried again. What are the implications of this towards our interview process? Will he have higher chance of denial or what? If so, what is our next step to reverse the situation? What does psych eval entails? I really hope he will pass the psych eval and proceed to the interview. Because if not, I dont know what to do. With corona virus spreading, the chance of getting him to US is narrower. All countries are restricting their travels around the word and I dont know when will they add the Philippines to that list. Please help me guys. Share if you have encountered something like this.
  8. I entered from washington dulles airport! The process was really smooth and wasnt asked any questions at all! immediately got stamped and left but what i didnt notice was the fact that they did not ask me for vaccination record neither my xray cd and i also forgot to give it to them! Will this be an issue for my green card?
  9. I received packet 4, where I have to make appointment for medical and interview. My issue is, there's only 5 approved physicians listed(on the gov website) for ALL OF CANADA, and the closest one to me is all the way in Surrey BC, while I'm in Alberta. And the interview is all the way in Montreal.... Is there anything closer that I'm missing? Is there anything I can do to make this easier? Or do I just have to travel across the country...? Also, for the medical, what kind of cost am I looking at?
  10. Hello, My wife came to US in August 2019 on K1. She did medical in her country July 2019. Now, we are having AOS interview on March 11. Interview form says that they also need I693 form. 1) We did sent I693 form signed by her; 2) Supposedly, K1 envelope already contained I693 from the original country; 3) We also have vaccination record with photograph given to her at the time of K1 medical. 4) The interview notice says: I693, if not submitted. Do we need to go to civil surgeon before interview again or it is considered "submitted"? Thank you.
  11. Hi all, I thought I'd write a review of my experience doing the medical examination at Horizon (formerly Medisys) in Montreal. Location The clinic was very easy to find. It's in a big office building next to McGill metro station on De Maisonneuve and Robert-Bourrassa. Horizon is on the 22nd floor. (Bonus: there's a newly opened branch of Café Olimpico just down Robert-Bourrassa if you need a quick coffee and croissant!) Premises I'm not sure if there was a redesign with the recent rebrand, but the clinic was very clean and brightly lit. My appointment was 12.30pm on a Thursday; there were less people than I expected, maybe 25 in total in the waiting room. There were still plenty of seats left. Close to the window, there's a small kids' play area with a table, chairs, and some toys. Check-in I gave the receptionist 5 passport pictures (Canadian-sized, no need for the photographer's address on the back), my vaccination records, my passport, a copy of the P4 letter from the US Consulate (printed this off from my email), and a copy of my visa interview date confirmation (ditto). I was given a detailed medical history form to fill out, which I gave back to the receptionist upon completing. Examinations Not long after this, I was called for X-rays along with two other people. We were shown to some changing cabins and told to put on gowns (removed clothes from waist up only). We did the chest X-rays one person at a time; this process was very quick and efficient. The technician took a front X-ray, then side; the whole thing took not even 5 minutes. Once we were done, she gave me a yellow slip to drop into a folder bin on my way out; this was to prove that I completed the X-ray portion. I got dressed and went back to the waiting room. After 15-20 mins, I was called for a one-on-one physical with a doctor. We went through another medical history checklist (this time more in detail), then he asked me to change into a full-body gown (keeping bra, underwear, and socks). He shone a light into my eyes and ears, checked my reflexes, checked my thyroid, palpated my abdomen, etc. – nothing too invasive. The doctor was very chatty and friendly, to the point where I thought, "Hey buddy, don't you have other patients to get to?" He told me I was in excellent health and sent me on my way. The next step took a while to get to; I must've waited at least 30 minutes. A nurse called me into a room and took a blood sample, tested my vision with and without glasses, weighed and measured me, and gave me a urine cup. I made sure to get any missing vaccinations at the local CLSC before visiting Horizon, but if you need any additional immunizations they'll happen at this stage. The nurse returned my vaccination records and gave me instructions for the urine test. I headed to the bathroom for the urine test (the women's facilities are out the door, past the elevators, and to the left). Once that was done, I dropped off the cup at a designated window (it's just to your left as you enter Horizon). After some more waiting, the receptionist called me to the counter and double-checked the paperwork to see that all the required tests were done. Then, she had me pay; the total came up to just over CAD 475 with tax – ouch. (There was an option to get the results couriered to me for CAD 50, but that was too rich for my blood!) She gave me the receipt (required for pickup of results) and told me I'd get an email when the results were ready. That was it! In total, I spent about 1h40 at Horizon. Three business days later, the results were ready to be picked up. Note that Horizon opens at 7am every day for those who are thinking of getting their envelope right before the visa interview; however, that's cutting it a bit close for me since my appointment is at 7.30am. Overall, the whole process was very smooth (if expensive). Hope this review helps!
  12. My wife and I want to try and expedite our Petition. Do we have to call to try and expedite or can we do it online? (My wife (the petitioner) has serious chronic health issues. She’s currently living in Ireland with me but her visa runs out in July. We want to expedite on the basis that she requires me to care for her. We are hoping this will be expedited).
  13. Hi everybody, I have a quick question and don’t know if anybody faced the same thing once. im currently in the US and the Timeline will probably allow it that I Don’t have to go back until the Actual Interview. my question: Could I do the Medical Exam here in the US for the Interview? Thanks

Orange,green, & Yellow... and report for interview is already forwarded to consulate.... Does this mean anything... if YES then what to do? Thanks in advance.
  15. Visiting Florida in around 7 months, a family holiday with quite a big group of us. Have 2 previous DUI convictions so visa was turned down, one was around 5 years ago and the other around 8 years. Was recommended to apply for waiver of ineligibility. So now I have the medical booked with embassy physician. I've read some horror stories about these medicals! What should be expected? Although the embassy officer stated visa was turned down for the DUIs only, there was also a caution for possession in 2012. Not an alcoholic or drug addict, just like to point that out! Have a good job in public sector, have done for many years. Have return tickets booked along with hotel details and enough spending money. I'd just like to know what to expect at the medical, really don't want to miss out on this amazing family holiday due to silly past mistakes. I'm a british citizen.
  16. Greetings, I'm new on here and wanted to know if we can use religious exemption for the medical examination. Here in the US I have no issues with it however I want to know if anyone has dealt with this issue for the CR1. My wife currently lives Jamaica and we wanted to know the process.
  17. Hello, My case was received at Mumbai embassy on July 1st and I booked my medical in Chennai on July 12th. My question is I have my appointment confirmation letter that I printed off from USTravel docs website and also have the letter which NVC emailed me that starts with "The National Visa Center (NVC) received your fiancé (e)’s/spouse’s approved I-129F petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). NVC will now forward the petition to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in Mumbai (Bombay), India". This letter has NVC case number and USCIS receipt number mentioned on it. When I called Apollo hospital, they mentioned that as long as there is NVC case number mentioned on the letter, it would suffice. Has anyone just submitted this letter and got medical done without any issues?
  18. Buena/Hello My question for this forum would be around the medical exam. Being that my fiancé currently resides in Cuba and has to got to another embassy in Guyana due to the closing of the embassy in Havana, Where would my fiancé need to conduct his Medical Exam prior to interview?
  19. My question is for booking flights being that Cuban beneficiaries do petitioners have to travel to another embassy. How far in advance would you say is needed to be in Guyana and how many days after the interview does one need to stay in Guyana I’m just wanting this information in planning ahead when interview appointment is set.
  20. Does anyone knows what are the required vaccines for the DR for adults and children? Also, do they accept the lab results that shows that a person has the antigens in the body (in case they have received vaccination and/or have had chickenpox or viral hep previously) I tried calling but they are no help. Said that I should come and have the evaluation and cannot go out to get required vaccines outside the very expensive medical office. I want to make this as inexpensive as can be since 5 of us are going for the medical, and it's a lot of money thanks,
  21. Good day guys! I was wondering if I need more vaccines on me. MY interview is soon-ish. The paper says that I voluntarily completed vaccination requirements but it doesn't have all of them for some reason. Also when I did my medical check back home it wasn't a flu season and now in the US it is. What do I do now? Is everything ok with my medical or I need to do a new one? I'm so confused. Thank you guys in advance
  22. Good morning, I am in the middle of waiting for my NO2 following successful submission of the I-130 via DCF to the London Filing office (I'm UKC and my wife is USC/UKC. Currently the USCIS London website is saying as of 10th January they are processing applications received 4th November. We submitted the I-130 application on the 20th November so therefore we are getting pretty close! My question is, I have been advised by other VJ members to get together a police report (currently requested from ACRO), and a medical report from my GP. My problem is that my GP doesn't seem to know what they need to provide. Therefore, am I asking them for my entire medical history? Or a time period of say 2 years? 5 years? Longer? If anybody could shed any light on this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
  23. Hi VJ friends, i have a question that hopefully someone here has gone through a similar situation. My wife has gone through the Medical examination prior to the interview. All the results came back ok, in terms of vaccinations, tests, etc. She had a vehicle accident about 3 years ago, in which she had to go through surgery for her arm. she brought all operation paperwork, x-rays and letter from the surgeon confirming that she had a procedure done on her arm. the accident did not involve anyone else or damage to property, it was just herself and her car. the medical office is asking for the accident report from the police, which is not available in the police database. if the report cannot be obtained, what would be the process or implications in moving forward through the interview process? Interview date is coming up in about 2 weeks. Thanks,
  24. 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!
