Medical Examination and Vaccinations

As soon as you have your interview appointment date, you must visit one of the Consulate’s designated panel physicians for your medical examination and vaccinations.

Please follow the two steps below:

Visit the Panel Physician before going to the Quarantine Service for vaccination.  The Panel Physician will inform you when your medical examination results are complete or available.  It may take three to ten days to receive your medical examination results.  In some cases, it may take longer and the Panel Physician may send your medical examination results directly to the Consulate.  

You must bring your Appointment Letter – PKT4 (for K cases: Bring Appointment Confirmation Sheet and Instruction Package Letter – PKT3 which includes the case number), passport, fee for your medical examination processing, and a copy of your vaccination records, if one is available.  See our fees page for costs associated with your medical exam. Cho Ray hospital accepts fees in Vietnam Dong only. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) accepts fees in Vietnam Dong or US dollars.
