Effective October 1, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Technical Instructions for panel physicians will require all immigrant visa applicants, all K fiancé(e) visa applicants, and nonimmigrant visa applicants who are referred to the panel physicians to receive a full COVID-19 vaccine series as part of their medical exam prior to being issued a visa. The CDC requires the COVID-19 vaccine to be approved through either the World Health Organization (WHO) or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine and need information about where to get one of the approved vaccines, please contact the panel physicians. We encourage all immigrant visa applicants and others subject to a medical exam to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible to not experience delays in their visa processing.
Please follow these steps before your immigrant visa interview at the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
