Prior to visa approval, each applicant for an immigrant visa must undergo a medical examination by an approved physician. Visa applicants are responsible for arranging an examination before their scheduled visa interviews. Exam results are normally ready in two weeks.
The approved panel physician for Slovakia is:
Lubica Capova, M.D.
Faculty Hospital – Podunajske Biskupice, Pavilon K
825 56 Bratislava
Phone: 0918 379 623
Please make an appointment by phone. Each applicant must bring his/her passport, two photos, any relevant medical history from his/her general practitioner, and a vaccination record to the appointment. Ms. Capova speaks Slovak and English.
The required medical exam for Immigrant Visas consists of a chest X-ray, blood tests, and an overall assessment of your physical and psychical condition. Children up to 15 years of age are not required to undergo chest X-ray or blood tests. Pregnant women also are not required to undergo X-rays. The doctor will evaluate each applicant's health condition and then fill out forms which will be sent directly to the Embassy for the Consul to see. All fees for the medical examination are paid by the applicant.
The Consul will review your medical results and determine whether you are qualified for an Immigrant Visa under U.S. law. If you are not, the Consul will explain exactly why and advise you how to proceed.
Medical examination results are valid for only one year.
