Medical Background Check for H1 B visa


Is a medical background check done in case of a H1 B…I have taken a few HIV and STD tests over the last 6 months but with all negative results. Will this test history affect my chances. Your opinion will be really appreciated.

Medical tests are not conducted for H-1B. Once you land in US, you will be on an insurance plan. So you will have to see what their policies are about various tests and pre-existing diseases (if any).

Thanx saurabh…my added concern is if this hiv / std testing history would have any impact on the visa stamping decision…something related to the health background section in DS160 form…is any health background check done similar to the criminal check…

No, it won’t impact the outcome of the visa stamping.
