What Happens in the Case of Mental Illness?

In case the patient has been diagnosed with a mental illness, he or she must bring a detailed report about the disability, its supervision and education. If the patient has a history of harmful behavior such as suicide attempts or any other history of this type, must provide details that allow the diagnosis of the origin of this behavior, if this has to do with drugs, alcohol or any medical problem.

What if I Tested Positive for Tuberculosis or Syphilis in the Past?

First, keep in mind that you must present your doctor with a certificate if you have tested positive for tuberculosis or syphilis so that he or she can have full knowledge of your case. This report must indicate which treatment has been submitted and for how long. If you have had a test that was positive, but did not receive any type of treatment, it is necessary to present an explanatory note from your doctor about why this was not the case.

In the event of an abnormality in the chest x-ray, check with your doctor to obtain your last plates and bring them to your appointment for the physical examination of immigration.
