Help!! Colombia Medical Results taking very long!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The doctor Monica Caicedo from Bogota Colombia is the worst option to take the medical exams for the embassy. I had my appointment with the doctor on March 13, long before my Visa appointment on April 1, so that I wont have any problems, however, today March 27 I still do not have the results and my appointment at the embassy is on Monday, April 1st/2019 . I have depression for 6 years, I take medicine and I have a normal life. I took with me the clinical history of my therapist and the doctor Monica says that it is not clear to her and she sent me to see a psychiatrist from the embassy, it was on March 19 and although it's been 8 days, in Monica's office they say they don't know if my results will be ready for the day of the embassy interview. I am so frustrated for all the process time and also I feel at the doctor's office they are being bureaucrats and they don't care. Who else has gone through this situation? I need your advice. thank you.

Sorry to hear this is happening to you. Can't remember my wife's doctor's name but he was pretty commonly used for immigration examinations in Bogota. She too was sent to a specialist and the medical report was not ready at the time of the interview, 2 days later. She called the specialist before boarding a plane back to Cali to insure that the specialist had everything she needed to forward on to the embassy. She was assured they had everything needed. Then, once she landed in Cali she had a message that the specialist needed my wife's signature on a form. So we had to buy another RT ticket just so she could sign a form. Nevertheless, all of this happened within her 4 day visit to Bogota, and the embassy received the full medical report about 3 days after her interview.


As for advice, there's not much you can do except call the doctor's office, repeatedly if necessary, and urge them to complete the process. Ask them if you need to sign any forms, too. Haha.
