USCIS Policy Change Regarding Validity of Medical Examination

USCIS Policy Change Regarding Validity of Medical Examination

USCIS recently changed its policy regarding how long Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record remained valid.  Beginning on June 1, 2014, Form I-693 will only be valid for one year after USCIS receives the form.  The new policy applies to all benefit applications adjudicated by USCIS on or after June 1, 2014.  To view full USCIS memo, visit www.uscis.gov/policymanual/Updates/20140530-I-693Validity.pdf .

As a result of the policy change, USCIS is now allowing Form I-693 to be submitted in the following ways:

– Submit Form I-693 by mail, together with Form I-485,
Application to Register for Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
– Submit Form I-693 by mail, together with Form I-485,
Application to Register for Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
– Submit
Form I-693 by mail in response to a Request for Evidence letter from USCIS,
after filing Form I-485
– Submit
Form I-693 in person at an interview in a USCIS field office (if an interview is
required)

To avoid having to submit a new medical exam because the initial I-693 expired before USCIS adjudicates your application, you should schedule the medical examination as close as possible to the time you file for adjustment of status, respond to a Request for Evidence, or attend an interview (if applicable).

If you have any questions regarding Form I-693 or filing an adjustment of status application, please schedule a consultation with one of our immigration attorneys today!
