How are Visa Medical Tests Scheduled?

All Visa Medical Tests are carried out at the Qatar Medical centers within a few hours after applicants complete their visa application process and biometric enrolment at the Qatar Visa Center (QVC).

The Visa Medical Test is automatically scheduled when the applicants book their appointment for biometric enrolment via the QVC website. The time interval between both appointments is approximately one hour.

Example: If the biometric appointment is set for 09:30 AM as per the QVC website appointment scheduler, the Visa Medical Test is automatically set at 10:30 AM
