Can anyone give me information on the medical evaluations for the Philippines.  Does both the Fiance and dependents go through the examination?  Is this done before or after the interview?  Do they go to specific embassy physicians or do they choose there own Physicians?  Do you know the cost of these exams?

Thanks in advance

It is good to see another Arkansasan on the site.

 

This is a very good Philippine specific guide. I used it for our K1
http://dennyeyberg.wixsite.com/filipino-am-visa/medical-exam

 

You must use St. Luke's Medical Center Extension.

Medical fees for 15 years and older is Php 16,042.50, and 14 years and younger is Php 8,600

We are ready to get going. She'll go to St Luke's for her medical on the 16th. It is my understanding that this takes 2 days? Also, how do you pay? Is it in cash or bank draft or what? I saw somewhere that they do not take credit card or check.

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

Everything will be done TIMES 2.   2 medicals.  2 visa fees (with separate deposit slips), 2 DS-160 ... well you get the idea. ;)

 

Depending on the age of the child (2-14 years) their medical requires 3 days because of the TB skin test so the medical will not be allowed on Thursdays.

She tried the BPI online payment, but that failed. She had to actually go to the branch twice to get it done. Anyhoo, everything is scheduled. Medical, VISA Interview, and CFO. I have tentatively booked a flight for 14 Feb.

Oh yeah. I didn't pay for it. I sat down with the Frequent Flyer people to find a good flight and reserve it, but not pay it. I do not want to flush away the money in case something comes up.

I updated my signature with the dates of everything. Hopefully I will be able to turn the last red ones blue very very soon. The flight date of the 14th is off anyway. She wants to push it back to the 28th so she will have time to give notice at work and spend a little time with her family before she leaves.
