ok talking to my fiance about the medical and the cost, can anyone who has recently been through this give me some more info

The appointment package states that medical is 143000 cop for general exam and 129000 cop for the blood test, and she is saying that she has been told that vaccines are an additional 270000 cop

Has anyone been through this and tell me a bit more

We went through this in January. I'm not sure how much the vaccinatios cost but we had tried to get them cheaper in her hometown. We had them done in December. When she arrived at the doctor's office, he said that he had to reinforce the previous vaccinations. We ended up paying twice. In Bogota it cost us about 100,000 for the 2 vaccines that she needed. Be aware that depending on the age of your fiancee, and her health history, she might need as few as 1 or 2 vaccines.

It's not just in Colombia--many, many docs will give the vaccinations again even if you just had them a few days before--don't waste you money until you see what the doc is going to do.
