    Yes, it matters very much. However, it would be up to Guatemala to enforce their licenses. Ours don't count outside of the state they were issued.

    In 1995, Paul passed the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) boards on his first attempt and earned board-certification under the ABO for 10 years. In 1997, to protest the ABO's 1992 decision to grandfather in older ophthalmologists and not require them to be recertified every 10 years in order to maintain their status as board-certified practitioners, Paul, along with 200 other ophthalmologists, formed the National Board of Ophthalmology (NBO) to offer an alternative ophthalmology certification system.[27][28] The NBO was incorporated in 1999, but he allowed it to be dissolved in 2000 after not filing the required paperwork with the Kentucky Secretary of State's office. Paul later recreated the board in September 2005, three months before his original 10-year certification from the ABO lapsed. His ABO certification lapsed on December 31, 2005. Paul has since been certified by the NBO,[22] with himself as the organization's president, his wife as vice-president, and his father-in-law as secretary.[29] The ophthalmology board is not officially recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).[22] The NBO was again dissolved on September 10, 2011.[30]

    Rand Paul is a highly skilled eye surgeon.

    What makes you think he does not have a license?

    Whether Guatemala recognizes and American license in another matter.

    If Guatemala wants "licenses", it is up to them to issue and enforce them. LOL I assume everything went fine, so no harm, no foul. LOL
