K1 Visa/Cuban Beneficiary/Vaccination Shots

Recommended Posts

Good Morning MVJ Community,

 

My question is regarding my SO living in Cuba.

As we await our approval, we try to remain positive, patient and proactive...

Since the cost of healthcare in Cuba is free--or extremely minimal, we both thought it would be a good idea for him to get his vaccinations, dental exam, etc. while waiting in Cuba.....especially the vaccinations, as I'm reading that in Guyana (where his medical exam and interview will be held) the exam is expensive if there is no evidence of previous vaccinations. Note: It appears these select Guyanese doctors have 'caught on' to a rather lucrative opportunity to generate revenue--especially since the list of 'approved' Guyanese doctors is rather slim.

My question is.....do you think external vaccination proof would come under 'scrutiny' by the CO/doctor?  Should I just 'bite the bullet' and pay to have vaccines done in Guyana? My SO (nor him mom) can't recall which vaccinations he had...and Cuba's record keeping going back is rather 'spotty'...especially during his younger years 😲...He's 48 years YOUNG ....lol.....was thinking to just have him do it all in Cuba for free...thoughts?

 

Have a great day!

It certainly wouldn't hurt to get them done for free in Cuba. You have nothing to lose since it's free. If Guyana ends up not accepting what you had done in Cuba, then you can get them again in Guyana. But I'd at least try the free route and see if they accept.
