I’m still gathering all the documentation needed for a long-term visa for Portugal. I’ve requested a letter from my local police department stating my lack of a criminal record. I also had a set of fingerprints taken to send to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which will check my record across the country. Happily, I’ve led quite a boring good-citizen life; the only other time I was fingerprinted was when I enlisted in the U.S. Army 39 years ago. I also just had my full medical exam, including tests for everything from tuberculosis to heart disease, and my doctor has certified my good health. I’ll be sending off the visa documents to the Consulate of Portugal in San Francisco this week. The medical report already is on its way to the Fulbright doctors who will decide if I’m healthy enough for the rigors of Lisbon!
And thanks to the folks at Fulbright Portugal, who put a nice notice about my selection on their newly redesigned website. It even includes a link back to this blog!
