What to expect during your medical examination

All applicants will have a full medical examination with one of the Embassy’s appointed doctors.

There will be a full review of past health.

The examination consists, at a minimum, of a physical examination of eyes, ears, nose, throat, extremities, heart, lungs, abdomen, lymph nodes, and skin and includes an evaluation of mental status. The applicant will undress to underwear whilst wearing a gown. Chaperones are available for all applicants.

In addition, applicants aged 15 years and above are required to have a chest X Ray and blood test for syphilis infection and kidney function and to provide a urine sample (which may be provided on arrival) for Gonorrhoea testing. If there are any indications of Tuberculosis disease or contact, we are required to consider additional tests which will be offered at NO additional cost.

Your vaccination records will be reviewed to verify whether you meet the United States vaccination requirement, or if it is medically inappropriate for you to receive any of the vaccinations listed in the vaccination chart you received from the Embassy.

If you do not have a vaccination record of any of the required vaccines, we are able to vaccinate you on the day of your medical examination.

Pregnant women may defer their chest X Ray until after childbirth, but the medical cannot then be completed without it.

In most instances, your medical results will be sent to the Embassy FIVE working days after your appointment, in time for your visa interview.
