The medical exam for K1 Visa applicant is a very important part of the K1 Visa or Fiancé Visa process. You can’t miss it because it’s the last stage before the interview. For someone who’s afraid of doctors and blood like me, I was more scared of them than my interview a week after.
But just like the feared interview, the main thing to remember is to always BE PREPARED. I had my medical exam on May 17th-18th 2011. Yes, the medical exam took 2 days! Dont Forget! Applicants are also required to provide the name, address and contact number of their petitioner in the U.S.A.
