Repeat Medical Examinations
Medical examination reports are valid for 6 months at most (3 months for some situations). You may need to renew your examination if you have not entered the United States before the expiration date of your medical examination report. In that case you have to make a new appointment with us. Contrary to the name, the repeat medical examinations are not in anyway different from the first medical examination. You will need to have a chest x-ray and the necessary laboratory tests repeated. You may need to provide sputum samples if you had provided them on your previous medical examination. The panel physician may also give the necessary vaccination shots.
