Hello - My Spouse lives in India. I am a US Citizen. I have sponsored them for green card, case has been approved and currently is with the NVC. I am wondering whether my spouse needs to get their medical and vaccinations done and submit copies to the NVC before they will forward the application to the consulate? If so, how long are the medical and vaccinations valid? What if NVC doesn't transfer the application for next 3 months. Will my spouse have to redo medical and vaccinations?
India or not, the medicals are valid for 12 months.
