Question for Moroccans/Spouses of Moroccans

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is regarding the medical exam that takes place before the interview. As you may know, there were only 3 doctors who are authorized by the consulate to perform these exams, 2 in Casablanca, 1 in Rabat.  I saw someone mention on the Moroccan visa journey Facebook page that the doctor in Rabat had been removed from that list. I went and checked the Dept of State website myself and do see he is no longer listed. I told my husband because he planned to go to this doctor for his exam. My husband called that doctor this morning and the doctor told him he was on vacation:huh:...now I don't know if I believe that or not. How long was he on vacation that they had to remove his name from the website?? I just don't want my husband to go to him, pay 2500-2800 dirhams for an exam and it be rejected by the CO because that doctor is no longer authorized by them to do the medical. Basically I don't want him tricking my husband out of money. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this? Anyone know if he's still working for the consulate or not?

 

Thank you

That's what I'm trying to tell my husband! But he thinks the doctor is telling the truth and wouldn't lie to get money. Ugh

If he's not listed then he's not working for them anymore. They wouldn't just accidentally delete his name and information.

 

If you need to prove it to your fiancé you could always have him call the consulate and confirm. But I doubt they've just mistakenly removed him from the list.

Maybe he is on vacation, but that doesn't change the fact that he is no longer listed as a consulate approved physician. I'd tell him that he needs to see one of the doctors in Casablanca. Like you said, I wouldn't risk paying the medical fee to the doctor in Rabat only to find that the consulate is no longer accepting medical exams from his office.

Please tell your husband to only go to see a physician listed on the website for the embassy he will be interviewing at.  If his name is not on the list, even if the someone claims that he is on vacation, don't use him.  Good luck.

Does your husband want the visa or not? Does he want complications at interview/POE or not? If yes, let him go to that doctor...

Pretty straightforward--only use the physicians that are approved by the embassy/consulate where the interview will take place.  They should send you this list of approved doctors or at least a link to the website where approved (as of today) doctors are listed.  The doctor should also know if they are on the approved list or not.  Don't overcomplicate this.

Probably will only get to leave a voice message

He needs to go to one of the 2 drs listed 

He has to take a paper to get into one of them

if he hands it over to another unauthorized dr,  it is lost 

then how does he do medical with the right dr

and why does he want to waste 300 UDS

 

only way to do this right is to go to one of the right drs

Yeah he tried to call the consulate today and there was no answer only recordings but I finally convinced him to just see one of the two doctors in Casablanca. Now we have to worry about weather there will be any available appointments. Someone on FB told me one of the doctors was all booked up for March and April. Why only have 2 consulate- authorized doctors for an entire country???

I don't know about other countries, unfortunately in many of the African countries, there are only up to 3 assigned to perform the medical for each embassy.
