Then comes my least favorite part, the Medical Packet (26 pages.) This includes everything from a lengthy medical history on your entire family, to getting Dental qualifications, physical qualifications, and Obgyn qualifications. This year I will be needing to get my veneers on my front teeth replaced before they will qualify me on the Dental side. I will start that process in about a week.
After you are completely qualified and all of your paperwork is turned in, there are a few more things they send you. One of them is information about bringing your laptop. They check it in the States and in New Zeland to make sure that it has the right software and security on it. They also send you list and advice on what to bring and what to pack, info on shipping items that wont fit in your suitcase and airline restrictions.
And then what? Well, from here I dont know what happens next. I have only ever been this far and never moved into the "you are actually going" group. I am guessing there are a few more forms and then they send you your airplane tickets.
Overall, I think I am 75% qualified to go. Once I get the dental stuff out of the way I will feel much better and be about 90% qualified. AND I will have amazingly beautiful new front teeth (pictures to follow soon.)
