Following worked for me:

\makeatletter

\def\filepath{{/tmp/}{/Users/cvr/}{/opt/NLM/jnl-xml/}}
\let\input at path=\filepath

\InputIfFileExists{path-tmp.tex}{Available}{NOT Available}
\InputIfFileExists{path-home.tex}{Available}{NOT Available}
\InputIfFileExists{path-jnl-xml.tex}{Available}{NOT Available}

I think, you might change the definition of \filepath as per your requirements.
