Applicants must submit application documents to NVC to be documentarily qualified for the visa interview. Unless all requirements are submitted, the Embassy cannot process a visa application to completion. Be mindful of the expiration dates of the required documents, and bring updated ones to the interview if necessary.
Medical clearance: All visa applicants, regardless of age, need to complete a medical examination before the visa interview. The cost of the medical examination is U.S. $100. Medical clearances are generally valid for 1 year. Some applicants must have additional tests done and undergo long term medical treatment for tuberculosis (TB) and other diseases detected during the medical examination.
