Hi,

Please can someone help me. I had one medical before i left London on the 11 January for my K1 Visa. When i entered the USA at Miami the Immigration Officer opened my Brown envelope at my half an hour interview. He went through my medical told me i was very healthy. i was lucky..

Do i have to go and have another one complete for my AOS INTERVIEW , plus all the vacinations again. I HAVE READ NO as the year has not run out is this true. OR SHOULD I PHONE the number on 1 - 797C to check. Please can someone advice me as i,m desperate time is running out for my Interview on the 31st October.

Thanks,

Kath.

Are all adjustment of status applicants required to have a medical examination?

Most applicants for adjustment of status are required to have a medical examination. The medical examination must be conducted by a civil surgeon who has been designated by the USCIS. The examination must be documented using Form I-693, Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status.

EXCEPTIONS:

2. Ks: If you were admitted to the United States as a fiance(e) (K-1), child of a fiance(e) (K-2), Spouse of a U.S. citizen (K-3), or child of K-3 (K-4), and received a medical examination prior to admission, then you do not require another medical examination as long as your application for adjustment of status (Form I-485) is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. You will, however, be required to submit a vaccination supplement with our adjustment of status application. The vaccination supplement must be completed by a designated civil surgeon.

Your medical is still valid, but you need a vaccination supplement. Check the doctors (surgeons) in your area on the official USCIS site.... you may need to call several of them, since lots of them want to talk you into getting a new medical, which you don't need. Just tell them that you need ONLY the vaccination supplement form I-693A.

Do you have the vaccination worksheet from your medical? The DS 3025? It makes it easier sometimes, because then the doctor in the USA has only to transform the information from the DS 3025 to the I-693A.
