STEP 2: Get a medical exam in Türkiye

Medical exam instructions can be found here.

All immigrant visa applicants, regardless of age, are required to undergo a medical examination by one of the medical doctors or clinics listed in the instructions. Only a physician accredited by the U.S. Embassy can perform this exam. Medical examination results from other physicians are not accepted.

It is your responsibility to schedule a medical exam with one of the doctors listed below before your visa interview at the U.S. Embassy.  Failure to complete your medical exam before your visa interview will result in processing delays.

Each applicant must show his/her passport as identification at each step of the medical examination process.

Once the medical exam is completed, the panel physician will electronically send the medical report to the Immigrant Visa Unit.

Medical reports classified as “Class B1 (TB)” are valid for 3 months from the date the last sputum sample is reported and signed by the doctor. All other medical reports classified as “No apparent disease or defect” are valid for 6 months after the doctor’s signature date.

Note: Fiancé(e), Diversity and Following-to-join Asylee visa applicants receive a sealed medical report which must not be opened prior to the interview.
