In order to be eligible for an immigrant visa, you and your accompanying relatives included in the process must undergo a medical examination. It is necessary to conduct blood tests, a chest x-ray, vaccinations and a physical exam (including basic gynecological and breast examination).
The applicants must present their passport to the doctor and to the lab as proof of identity. If the passport is not available, the Brazilian ID or the equivalent for non-Brazilian citizens can be used.
Applicants should present 10 (ten) 3x4cm pictures to the doctor at the moment of the clinical examination and inform the case number. Please bring your appointment letter to the medical examination, if available.
The doctor’s fee is paid directly by the applicant. It cannot exceed the amount listed in our schedule of fees. Laboratory fees are also paid by the applicant.
The medical examination is generally valid for 6 (six) months. In some cases the validity is only 3 (three) months. This generally occurs when the applicant has some specific medical issue.
