I was wondering if anyone could give a small summary of what happens at the medical test at the OFII in France. I have read a few comments on the internet and one of them mentioned that they give the option of producing a chest X-ray taken in the native country (in my case, India). Since I'd be taking a copy of the chest X-ray to apply for an UK Visa later on, I was curious if I could just produce one such to the French authorities as well.
It consists of chest x-ray and then a stop in a doctor's office.
The chest x-ray is to detect TB.
The doctor's visit (beyond looking at the x-ray) is for prevention purposes only: they ask you questions about life habits (smoking, drinking, etc.), about possible undiagnosed eyesight problems, etc. It is possible that you get a very quick eyesight check as well, but I've only had that happen to me on one such visit (because I've done two...)
As for your question, it is possible that they accept your chest x-ray, but in all cases that will not free you from the visit unfortunately :) As it has a wider purpose. All in all it takes a few hours.
