Q: I am in the process of taking on the Immigration Medical Examination. But I am pregnant. Can I still appear for it?
If you are pregnant you can still take on the medical examination. But some parts of it could be postponed until your baby is delivered. Every case differs, however, and depending on the circumstances of your case the Civil Surgeon will decide, whether to conduct all parts of the Examination or not. You should discuss all your concerns or any existing issues with your family doctor before you go in for the Immigration Medical Examination, and meet the Civil Surgeon or the Panel Physician.
Q: I have some religious or moral beliefs. What if the vaccinations in the Immigration Medical Examination are contrary to my religious beliefs or convictions?
In the event of your holding some religious beliefs or convictions that do not permit you to go in for vaccinations you may still be eligible for an immigrant visa or adjustment of status. But for the vaccinations you may be required to apply for a waiver of vaccination requirements.
Q: Who will be paying for the vaccinations?
The applicant for the Green Card or Immigrant visa is supposed to be paying the appropriate fee for all vaccinations directly to the Civil Surgeon, as agreed upon with the Civil Surgeon. You should remember to ask for the price of the vaccinations before the medical examination is held or during the administration of the vaccinations.
