Medical in Bogota

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

My husband and I just received news last night that he will be having his interview on Feb. 1 in Bogota. We are starting to make plans for the medical exam. I know that he has to have his blood work and x-rays done before the physical. I was just wondering if he can do them on the same day or if there has to be a day in between the two.

Thanks! Any kind of input would be greatly appreciated!

Murphy's law applies in Bogota (meaning plan for something not going according to plan.) I would schedule 3 days for the medical and trip to the bank that should give you more then enough time. I believe you could do the medcial and X-ray the same day. I heard that the embassy did not require the x-ray any longer but I could be mistaken on that. Get there early on the day of the interview say 5:00 am and you will be frist on line. Have some hot coca, a warm sweate/jacket,hat,gloves and a umbrella in case of rain.

Most people have the two appointments on the same day. Keep in mind that you have to select the physician first. The lab only does appoitments at 7:00am and only the visa applicant (beneficiary) is allowed in to the office. You should be able to schedule the physicians appointment for late in the day. This allows the lab to get the information to the physician.

In our case, we have the lab appointment at 7:00am and the physician's appointment at 4:00pm. We still left a day open before the interview for any unforeseen contingencies.

Good luck!

Your husband need to do it with at least 2 to 3 days before the interview. You need to make the appointment for both exams with time or he will have dificulty getting an appointment. It takes about a day for doctors to get all the paperwork ready for the embassy.

When my wife called for her appointment they ask the date of interview that way they can schedule the appointment.
