I spent the better part of my day today getting this;
This is my “Certificate of Health Examination for International Traveller”
It all started with a phone call on Monday saying that I had to have my “Health Exam” done before the University could move forward with preparing the documents I need to process our family’s work visas for China.
This is important, and time is of the essence, so I moved on it immediately. As I was sorting out the details, it turned out Erica needed to get this “Health Exam” too. She was not thrilled.
One of the reasons this was ‘inconvenient’ for us is that we couldn’t get this exam done in the city we lived. We had to go to Changsha, the provincial capital that is about 2 hours away. Thankfully, we have some friends in town who could watch the kids for us (bringing them on this trip would have been quite the ordeal!)
We left at 7:30am and returned home around 5:45pm – with our certificates in hand. Whew!
