Before Leaving Indian Shores

You are required to complete a medical information form that was sent to you by the school. You can also find it here. The document has a detailed list of tests and vaccines required. There are several mandatory tests and vaccines, make sure you take them all. You may or may not take the optional tests/vaccines. If your PPD test is positive you need a chest X-ray taken. It is expensive out here. Get an eye check up in case you wear glasses/contacts. Here is a quick Checklist of things that can help you while you pack.

Also make sure that you have the following documents with you when you leave.
I-20 (Usually three Pages)
