- Bring your passport and for all members of your group. We cannot process your visa medical without it and you'll be asked to reschedule. Passports need to be currently valid, we cannot accept expired passports.

- There is no need to fast for your appointment, you can eat or drink as much as you’d like. The more water the better!

- Avoid caffeine and drink water for hydration - this helps both your blood pressure and urine (if needed).
