Green Card Lottery Medical Examinations

Green Card Lottery winners must pass a medical test before going to the interview at the United States Consular officer in your home country or any United States of America Embassy nearest to you. The medical test should be done by a medical practitioner named by the United States Consular officer in your home country or any United States of America Embassy nearest to you. The medical test will NOT be accepted if performed by any medical officer other than the ones named by the U.S. Embassy. The medical examination fee must be paid by the Green Card Lottery winner if he/she gets the interview notification. (The second letter.)

The correct medical examination forms (DS-2053) can be obtained from the United States Consular officer in your home country or any United States of America Embassy nearest to you. The doctor will require two photographs from you when you are going for the medical test.

Normally completion of the medical and all related tests will require at least one week. So be sure to schedule your medical appointment well in advance of your visa interview date.

A blood test for antibody to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is required as a part of your medical examination. The results of your test will be provided to a consular officer. Also, it may be necessary to report results to the health authorities in this country. A positive test result of HIV will mean that you may not be eligible to receive a visa.

Visit the United States Consular officer in your home country or any United States of America Embassy nearest to you to get the medical test, forms and information on doctors who are performing the medical test to avoid unnecessary delay in your Green Card Lottery interview and prevent waste of money by going to the correct doctor.
