    Hi, I am currently in the process of applying for GC - petitioned by spouse in US. I-130 has been approved and awaiting visa package. Q: Am I required to undergo a medical exam? Just wanted to get a head start. Thanks.

    It's also a requirement for CP. There's a clinic in Montreal you go to a day or two before your consular interview. Nothing fancy, a little blood and maybe an X-Ray.

    Thanks. It will be CP as I'm still in Canada. I'm assuming I have to wait until closer to the appt date with the consulate?

    Yes, I wouldn't do it to soon. Are you in the Montreal area?

    I'm in Windsor ON. I just checked on the approval doctor's list. There is one in Windsor, they say you need to have written immunization records. ????

    Just today we had our interview. Yes, there is a new regulation and you will need a form I-693A filled out by the approved medical facility. If you don't have written evidence of immunizations, you will need a comprehensive blood tests and probably a tetanus shot.:(

    Does anyone know if I-693A form is required for consulate processing outside of the US?

    I'm pretty certain that the Packet 3 or Packet 4 will tell you the form you need, and where to get the exam. Don't worry.

    If you have your immunizations records since birth, you can save yourself from needles. I needed an MMR shot only when I went for my medical in Toronto in late 2002.
