Two days ago I emailed the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C. to find out if there is a limit on how old the medical letter can be in order to be accepted for visa purposes. I’m so glad I asked! The response I received (the very next day. Speedy service?!) said the letter could not be more than three months old. My letter was right about to pass the three month mark so I needed a new one. I called my doctor to see if they could just update the letter, but they said I needed to come in for a physical this time. The following day I went to my appointment, received my letter, and took it to Annapolis to have it notarized, certified, and have the Apostille placed. Now I’m good to go! All I have to do now is fill out the visa application, get passport photos taken, make copies of everything, and then run down to DC. Since I had the FBI criminal record check I need to get the Apostille from the Department of State. Then, I can copy everything and take it to the Embassy! That’s my game plan for next week.
