Instructions for Medical Examination

Each Immigrant Visa applicant and Fiance (K) Visa applicant, including children of any age, must undergo a medical examination. All applicants must present completed medical exams in a sealed envelope at the time of their immigrant visa interview. Do not open this envelope under any circumstance. We will not issue a visa without a medical exam.

Please note that all applicants between 2 and 14 years of age are now required to take a tuberculin skin test (PPD test) at least four days prior to their Immigrant Visa appointment. The PPD test results must be reviewed by a panel physician 48-72 hours after the skin test’s administration, and in some cases children may need follow-up chest X-rays.

NOTE: All visa applicants undergoing a medical exam, 15 years of age or older, are required to be tested for gonorrhea. Applicants must contact the physician at least four days in advance of their prospective medical exam date. The physician will give you instructions on procedures you need to follow for your medical exam.

You may select any one of the doctors listed below, they all charge the same prices. Please note that each physician has its own office hours and office procedures. For specific questions about your medical exam, including what documents to bring, please contact the physician directly.

Each applicant must present to the examining physician:

  1. A Valid Passport (at least one year validity) and a copy. Please make sure that your name, date of birth, sex, and expiration date shown on your passport are correct.
  2. Five Photographs. ID size (color photos on a white background).
  3. Vaccination Card. Please make sure it is current. U.S. law requires certain vaccinations depending on the age and sex of the applicant. If you cannot provide a current, original, and valid vaccination card to the physician, you will need to pay for all of the required vaccinations.
  4. Your case number, that begins with the letters TGG.
  5. On a white sheet of paper, list the following information:
    a) Your current home address in Honduras.
    b) Address in the U.S., where you plan to reside.
    c) Contact e-mail.
    d) If the patient is a female and has had children: date of birth of all children.
    e) Date of previous surgeries.

The medical examination is generally valid for 6 months, but for those with certain medical conditions, the validity period is 3 months. You will have to repeat your medical examination if you do not complete the visa process before your medical examination expires, or if you change your passport after you have undergone your medical examination.
