Do I need medical again?

By Dido8691

Hello everyone,

I was in Qatar visiting my husband for three months from November 2015 to February 2016.  I had a Visit Visa for that time and had my medical at the Medical Commission (blood tests and chest x-ray).   I am returning to Qatar next month for the duration of a few months. I will re-apply for a Visit Visa.  My question is, does anyone know whether I have to have another blood test and chest x-ray performed as my last ones were done only 9 months ago?  Or can the results of those be used for my new Visit Visa?  

Thanks for any advice!

Thanks for your reply umkhan. I had them done about 9 months ago so it looks like I will need them doing again. I will take all the old paperwork with me which may help. Thank you.

Hello. You dont have to do that tests again if they were last done within 6 months. However you will still have to go, pay fee and quote the old Visa number on which medical was done.

Thanks for your reply AmphotericinB, it is very helpful. I will speak to my husband about this and get him to speak to his Company to see if it is possible.

Thank you.

why don't just change your visa status from visit to husband dependent's visa? you can come here every 6 months and there is no need to do the medical examination each time you're coming here.

Thanks for your reply acchabaccha. That's a pity, I was hoping not to have to go through that whole ordeal again, but looks like I better prepare myself for another visit to the Medical Commission!

No, it cannot be used. You will need to go through the whole process again. My friend's son returned after just five months of exiting Qatar and he was required to do so.

Thank you for your reply.

Yes I know tests are needed for a visit visa.

I wanted to know if the medical results from my last tests of a few months ago could be used again for my new visa, or will I have to undergo the same tests again? Thanks.

Dear Sir,

Every family visit visa in which you stay more than 30 days require medical test.
