Help VJ!!!! There is no longer a panel doctor in my country where I reside!!!

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Aruba

My interview is scheduled for next month. I called the ONLY doctor, that was/is on the list of authorized panel doctors in my country (Aruba).

I was advised its been about a year since they have NOT been contracted to administer the immigrant medical exam, yet he is still listed on the usembassy.gov’s website. I’ve sent the embassy an email but it might be days before I even get a reply. I can’t seem to find any updated list for my country and I’m lost at this point.

There is no US embassy in my country so we already have to fly into another country to do our interview. I’m hoping we don’t have to fly to another country to do our medical, fly back home and then fly back again for our interview.

Any advice or help will be so appreciated.

I'm sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, I wasn't sure where to post this.

The Consulate General in Curaçao does not issue Immigrant Visas.

Residents of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao must apply at the U.S. Embassy Caracas.

http://caracas.usembassy.gov/information-concerning-the-medical-examination-and-vaccines.html This lists three Doctor's addresses.

Residents of St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba must apply at the U.S. Embassy Bridgetown.

http://barbados.usembassy.gov/medical-exams.html Lists one more.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping that was not going to be the case & maybe I was missing something, but it looks like we will have to make two trips. This really sucks!
