Medical Treatment

An applicant whose primary reason for traveling to the United States is for medical treatment or evaluation should schedule an appointment using and bring all the required documents to the interview.

In addition to all of the required documents, the applicant must provide:

  • Medical diagnosis from a local physician, explaining the nature of the ailment and the reason the applicant requires treatment in the United States.
  • Letter from a physician or medical facility in the United States, expressing a willingness to treat this specific ailment and detailing the projected length and cost of treatment (including doctors’ fees, hospitalization fees, and all medical-related expenses).
  • Statement of financial responsibility from the individuals or an organization that will pay for the patient’s transportation, medical and living expenses. The individuals guaranteeing payment of these expenses must provide proof of ability to do so, often in the form of bank or other statements of income/savings or certified copies of income tax returns.
  • If relatives in the United States are paying for travel and medical expenses, evidence of sufficient funds to cover these expenses should be provided.

If the applicant is paying, the applicant should provide evidence of financial resources in the Czech Republic.
