    My Medical Exam with Dr. Ian Zatzman

    Hi everyone, I would just like to say, I am so thankful to everyone who posts here on VJ, it has helped my husband and I a lot. Here are my 2 cents! Background I recommend booking online through their website or even calling to find a date that works for you if online you can't find a suitable time. I called initially, since I did not know about the online booking process. The secretary is very sweet and she was going to give me Dec 5, because that was the most recent availability but then she said a spot opened up for Dec 3. Therefore it doesn't hurt to call and ask as well for an appointment. Note I booked my appointment as soon as I received my appointment letter which was Nov 9 and thats the earliest opening I got. Before arriving make sure you have: Passport Immunization record (yellow card, if u don't have yellow card call ur local municipality health department and pick it up. Go to your family dr to review if u are up to date on vaccines) Case # (Appointment Letter) - email printout will suffice anything that is mentioned on their website debit/cash of approx $360 (you pay separately at each step of the exam i.e., x-ray, blood lab, dr's office) The Exam Process I had my medical exam today in Maple, ON (Vaughan /Richmond Hill) with Dr. Ian. My appointment time was 11:15 am. In the morning's the parking lot is full (it is free) and i circled around for about 5 mins after i decided to park outside the plaza on side road. The waiting room was already filled and I was there by 10:45 am. The secretary called me up at 11:15am, asked for the items I was required to bring and scanned them. She did not take the passport photos I brought even though I asked about them. Instead she took a photo of me on the office camera and uploaded it. She asked for a payment of $260. She also asked about my intended US address, so make sure you know that. I recommend confirming your phone number, so u can be notified of your package. I entered Dr. Ian's office at 11:45am, and it was quick from there. He is a very nice man. He had a light conversation with me about where I am going in the States, if I have family there. He checked my immunization record, asked about any medication I am on, any major surgeries and then he checked my vitals (Blood pressure and heart). That was it and then it just took time for him to enter all the vaccine data into the computer. He then told me to pick up my package in 1 week. Dr then gave me papers and directed me to the x-ray lab and blood lab which are both on the first floor. By 12:05pm, I went to the blood lab to get that done and the urine sample. That costed around $30. I was called in for blood work at 12:25pm. The nurse drew 1 tiny tube of blood and then I went to give the urine sample. (Note: I asked for you all wondering, because I was curious too; for women on their period, you can still give a urine sample, supposedly Dr's can tell that its mensuration blood, so it doesn't interfere with the results. But perhaps it may be better to book around your cycle anyway if you don't want to deal with that.) At 12:39 pm, I was waiting in the x-ray office (it was not packed, thank God). That costed about $70. I was called to go change in the dressing room. I asked to confirm for a female technician (because I am a practicing Muslim). She took one pose and that was it. I was done for the day at 1pm. Let me know if you have any questions and Good luck!

  3. Husband is under administrative processing and CO asked him if he could answer some questions that they will send to him through email. He said sure. But now I’m reading about a DS-5535 form? Does everyone receive this? I think this may be the questions that the CO was talking about but she never said DS-5535 and still hasn’t sent it via email. Should I call and ask them to send it? Or should I just leave it alone? In which cases is DS-5535 form usually required? This is too much to handle. I just want it to end happily. 😪
  4. Hello All, I am writing this from my recent experience with CR1 visa. Me and my husband are Muslims - I am an Indian citizen and my husband is a US citizen. We only had a Nikahnaama from Qaazi at the time of submitting documents to USCIS for i130, and were afraid if it will be accepted. So we submitted some photographs from our marriage and sworn affidavits from people from India and USA who attended our wedding that happened in India. By God's grace, we never received any RFE. So, I would say that if husband and wife are both muslims and the wedding happened in India, and one of the spouses is an Indian citizen, you don't have to get your marriage registered, and can submit Nikahnaama from your Qaazi along with some sworn affidavits from wedding attendees both from USA and India. The Nikahnaama has a number on its top which the nikah committee submits to the government. You can also confirm this with your Qaazi who issue it to confirm if it gets registered with the government. Also, you don't have to worry about it at the NVC too. And also at the time of interview at US embassy in India. Our Nikahnaama was well accepted at all of these places and we did get my green card at the end of this process. Just wanted to share this information as I could find nothing when I was eagerly looking for it. Also you can look at this image and this source link to confirm what I said - https://in.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/marriage/ Thank You! P.S - This is what I am sharing from my experience and you may want to confirm from other places too as every case is different in its own.
  5. Hello and thanks for this forum, -2014 Visa granted for Ms in Engineering -Program finished now enrolled in phD, with new I-20 -Visa expires October 2018 Going back to Egypt this summer, should I risk renewal while it is still valid, or come back to the US and stay on I-20 as there has been a lot of noise around the new administration and student visa? And in the case that I don't renew it, should I apply for an I-539, and whether its denial would lead to a loss of status that would invalidate the current I-20 Thank you very much.

    Hi everyone, looking for answers about my situation. I was working in kuwait where i met my son's father who's now my ex .. i got pregnant in kuwait and got scared that i will be in jail if I won't go back to Philippines .. one of my colleagues said that they know someone who make fake marriage certificate. It's just to show whenever there is a police checking .. me and my ex agreed to it, my ex doesn't have contract, their company let them exit every three months then come back to work.. so unfortunately he doesn't have CIVIL I.D .. the guy working for fake marriage didn't allow my ex as my husband on my fake marriage coz he doesn't have civil i.d .. so i asked my friend's boyfriend who is a muslim and local from kuwait .. he agreed after telling him it's fake .. i was 8months pregnant when i came here in Philippines for good .. after a year me and my ex decided to get marry, unfortunately my supposedly fake marriage got registered in NSO 😥😥 i was so shocked and upset,i contacted the person who made it and he saidhe will divorce it .. we just need to pay 50k. We paid him but my divorce didn't happen .. till me and my sons father broke up .. my american fiancé is now paying a real attorney to fix my divorce .. but i had doubts when i heard that divorce is getting denied by the embassy now ☹️we we're thinking about getting it null and void coz i don't have signature in my marriage certificate but tge attorney said he can work on getting it divorce.. i Don't know what to decide about it .. i just wanted to know if, will i be denied if i just divorce my marriage?? .. thanks in advance for the response ..
