Question Medical Certificate

Postby Vuljanus » 09 Jan 2017, 13:14

Hello community!

I have a question regarding the medical certificate: What is that supposed to look like? I'm from Austria and there is nothing official like a formular or a "fit note" like in the UK. Should i just go to a doctor and ask him to state that i am in a healthy condition and dont have any illnesses that could affect my time in japan? Would that be enough? What did you guys do for the certificate?

Thanks and kind regards,
Janus

Theoretically a certified check-up might be wanted, but most relevant is, if you have a (severe) medical condition, chronic stuff etc. going on, that its being stated

Mine was a total joke. The time I got accept, the doctor simply printed out the document he made for me two years ago already (different application), changed the date and slapped on a stamp.

"Mr NAME, born DATE, was checked today in detail"
"Hereby, no signs for sickness where detected, in particular no signs of a contagious decease"
"Mr NAME is in full health and suited to participate in an exchange program (Vulcanus) in Japan."

Thats the complete content of my certificate. Is that how it should go normally? No, probably not :lol: . But enough for ViJ :)

Did you have to pay for it?
