Medical Examination and Vaccines
The Immigration and Nationality Act requires that all immigrant visa applicants and certain non-immigrant visa applicants, regardless of age, undergo a medical examination before receiving a visa. All applicants must undergo a medical examination administered by one of the three approved clinics prior to the interview.
We suggest you plan to attend your medical examination at least one or two days prior to your visa interview date. Applicants ages two (2) years to fourteen (14) years of age must undergo the medical examination at least four (4) work days prior to their visa interview date.
The clinics, in some cases, will send the medical results to the Consulate for inclusion in your application. If you are given your medical exam to carry to the Consulate, DO NOT open the sealed envelope. If you open the medical exam, you will be required to schedule and pay for a new medical exam.
During the medical exam, it is important to give complete and honest answers to all of the questions asked by the clinic staff. If, during the course of your visa interview, the Consulate discovers you left out or misrepresented medical information, you will be required to schedule and pay for a new medical exam.
In Ciudad Juarez, there are three medical clinics approved to process immigrant visa applicants. The clinics are located near the Consulate. Applicants must present their visa interview appointment letter in order to obtain the medical examination. The clinics see applicants on a walk-in basis between 6 and 11 A.M. Monday to Friday.
