Medical in Montego Bay, Jamaica

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done a medical in Montego Bay recently and if yes where did you go? I have called Mobay Hope and Fairview Medical and they told me they no longer offer that service. I really do not want to go to Kingston with two school aged children. Also how much does it cost to do the medical?

Thanks in advance

Andrews Memorial Hospital 27 Hope Road Kingston 10 (876) 926-7401-3

This is the only place you can go. Call the number listed to be sure of costs as immunizations may increase price if they are needed. I believe it starts at $110 american $$

LionessDeon is correct from my experience. Also, your medical appointment will be aprx 10 days to your interview and you have to go back to Andrews to collect the results 1 or 2 working days before your inteview at the embassy. I was told to take USD140 i think, I do not know what the exchange rate is today, and another USD150 just incase you will need aditional vacines. In most cases depending on ur age and if you were fully immunized you will not get any other shots. But be preprared with enough cash. I hope this helps.

Yea unfortunately Kingston is the ONLY place to go. My fiancé was NOT happy about it.. LOL

When I called Andrews, which was only couple weeks ago, they said it was $15,240JMD for the exam and to bring an extra $15,000 just in case he needed vaccinations or whatever. His appt is this Friday. I've heard some say they give them a sealed envelope to take with them to embassy and another said that Andrews sent it directly to the embassy. My fiancé just said that the Medical Center sends it directly to the Embassy.

Good Luck on this wild and crazy ride

Andrews Hospital is where you will have to go. Call and they will ask when is your interview and they will schedule your appointment date for you. I am not sure if they will send your results straight to the embassy or you will have to collect it. I was the one who collected mine, On my receipt the receptionist gave me the date to go back and collect my results, it was two days before but i collected it the day before my interview since I was staying over that night for my interview the next day. I was given a copy of my chest X-RAY and Vacination that they said I should show the chest X-ray to a Dr. incase i was requested to do a chest X-RAY upon arriving in the US..

Be sure to take the extra $150, i was given 3 shot and one was $6,000 the other 2 was very cheap.

I'm sorry to confuse you guys but it's only the children who are immigrating to their father. They are both 8 years old and already fully immunized. I am going to take the cards back to the clinics to ensure they don't need boosters before taking them for the medical.

Yes the kids should be at interview, yes check with the clinic

all their shots are listed on the card...I would tell my concern

dragging back kids to them at Andrews &see if they will send

it over to the consulate, if not arrange to do pick up day B4 the

interview, stay with someone in Kingston from the day B4 collect

your package then interview the next morning.
