    Medical examination for NIV?

    Hi!

    Does anyone here know in what - if any case it is required to undergo a medical examination when applying for a NIV? All information I have read online supports that it is only for IV a medical examination is required.

    The reason I wonder is because of a case in the local media here, where a girl, that was charged (and accepted a fine) for public drinking, had to undergo a medical examination for a NIV.

    I just cannot seem to find any information that warrants a medical examination for a NIV. Does anyone have any information at all regarding this?

    Certainly can happen as you evidenced, not a standard requirement.

    I find that extremely weird. What is the legal basis? DoS explains the legal basis in INA for IV, but nothing about NIV. Almost makes me think that the embassy did a mistake in her case. Especially seeing that I, and others I know, have gotten a waiver from the controlled substances inadmissibility without the examination.

    To examine someone for tuberculoses when they're not immigrating seems absurd.

    Depends on? Going to renew my waiver now, and I am hoping to avoid an examination, seeing that scanning for tuberculosis and so forth costs a fortune..

    My Mum had TB so I have been checked more times than I can remember, if you are clear I doubt it will come up. I assume cost depends on where you live, a no cost option for me.

    Fingers crossed, then

    Do you have a tip regarding to primary occupation, btw?
    What is the best way to put both studying and working in the DS160? I study full time, and work part time, but I feel like the work is kind of important as well, seeing that I have worked at the same place for several years.. What is the best way to put it?

    Long time since I filled one in and I think it was not on line, do you only have one choice if so I would go with work.

    Hmm.. Find this difficult. Since studying is my full time focus, and working is like 20h a week..

    Another option is to choose "other" and write in both.
