Required Documents

Medical Examination

All visa applicants must have a completed medical report from a designated medical facility (the list of facilities is available here (PDF 104KB) ) before they are eligible for an interview.  Medical reports from other medical centers will not be honored. A Medical Report is valid for six months from the date of the physical.  Your medical report must still be valid by the time you travel, so you must plan accordingly. If your medical report will expire near the time of your interview, you are requested to get a new medical report completed to avoid slowing down the processing of your case.
