hi Canegirl, no our agent hasn't shared any info from immigration with us other than what docs have been required. We haven't seen anything written, but maybe there hasn't been anything. But also we are waiting on a 309 and are already married - so maybe that's why it's taking longer. If I don't hear anything this month I will have him call and find out the delay. Oct 24 marks 1 year since filing!!

Unfortunately that is the hardest thing!

We currently have a date booked but nothing else, although we are having a very small wedding.

The only thing I could suggest to you is to book a date next year and hopefully it falls into place, with you being approved and married within the 9 months. You need to sit down and look at the dates. Most PMV's on this forum recently have been granted within about 6 months or so but we all know that the processing times vary. Sorry I am not much help!

Oh yes I forgot about the 309.

I am looking forward to the day you post to say your visa has been approved

LOL yeah me too. Looking back on old posts for DC, it has taken up to 11 or so months for some, and that was in 2013 - so I won't lose hope just yet.

Hang on in there Gemini.

It is really tough waiting - I think the lack of certainty is the hardest thing.

Hopefuly things are on the home straight for you and you will get good news soon.

Thanks pandk, you're right, the not knowing is tough. Keeping distracted is good. I'm hoping to see some more approvals on here soon!

Hi, my fiancee and I are in the middle of working on our PMV Visa and have a question about the medical and background check.(I'm a U.S.A citizen, Oregon to be exact)

I first thought the background check was a simple local police background check, but after reading this thread I have questions. What are all the background checks I need to receive to fulfill background part? Local Police, State, and FBI? If so how do I acquire a State and FBI background search?


And for the medical what tests do I need and where do I find the paper/info to give to hospital to know what I need done?

Oh, and one last random question. Are all the U.S. applications logged through Washington D.C.? Even online? Basically, if I submit a online PMV application is it processed through the Washington D.C. embassy?

Thanks for the help. I'm sure you'll see me and my lovely fiancee on here a lot more.

Hi and welcome!

You will need to do a state police check and the FBI check. The state police check you will just send a form and payment in and with your FBI check you will need to get fingerprints done, fill in a form and send your payment in. My fiancÚ state check took about a week and a half and his FBI check took about a week through a FBI channeler. We waited until they requested the police checks and medicals. When they request the police checks they will give you the channeler that have been approved by immi. If you choose to get the checks through the FBI themselves there is a long wait time.

With the medicals you can generate a HAP ID on your application. I can't actually remember where we found the information on the approved immi doctors ... I think it was by doing a search on the immi site you will be able to find the list in the various U.S. states.

Yes it will be processed through the Washington DC embassy.

Hello! I am delmlund's fiancee

Thank you so much for your help Canegirl.

I think I found the website you were talking about: United States of America

Where it says Panel Physicians, are they the doctor's approved to do the medical examinations?
We are a bit concerned, because there is not one listed for Oregon.

Hi there!

That's the info you are looking for yes. Unfortunately some people have to travel for their medical examinations, it looks like your fiancÚ might have to. I'm not great at geography haha but how far would be the closest one for your fiancÚ?
