By “authorized physician” we mean a doctor who is approved by the US embassy in your country. If you complete your medical check with another doctor, the consular will not accept it as valid.

In your medical examination, a lot would be examined. For instance, your medical history would be examined. You would also be examined physically (eyes, ears, nose and throat, extremities, heart, lungs, abdomen, lymph nodes, skin, and external genitalia). Also not forgetting, you would need to bring a copy of your immunization records.

Things To Note Attending US Visa Interview Appointment

Before you attend your interview you need to take your time to do some homework, so that you don’t feel lost. The person that would interview you is the consular officer. In this process, your fingerprints would be scanned.

Do not carry along with you, any foods, backpacks, laptops or big bags to the embassy. You have to take very few things with you. Also, endeavour to dress in a simple manner.

Arrive at the consulate

As an attendee to your interview, you need to arrive on time. Sometimes, you might have to wait in a queue, but that does not guarantee late coming. Try to be in the meeting, at least, 10 minutes earlier.

Fingerprint verification

When you enter the entrance of the embassy, you would be taken through the security door. This security door has a full-body metal detector scan.

Onwards, you would receive a token, which you would use for the interview. Finally, your fingerprints would be scanned and you would receive further instructions.

Try to arrange the documents properly, so that you don’t have to mess with your hands when you meet the interviewer.
