No DS-3025 given to K-1 holder

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay, I've read up about the I-693 and ds-3025.
It seems, based on the pinned post regarding these things, that my fiance/husband (K-1 visa holder) does not need to file the i-693 because his medical exam was only a couple months ago. It seems, however, that he would need to fill out the ds-3025.

Our problem is that he wasn't given a copy of the ds-3025 by the civil surgeon. He was given a copy of his chest X-ray, but not the ds-3025.
According to the pinned post, we can just not submit anything and hope that all goes well.
I realize that's not the ideal option, but as he isn't yet covered by any health insurance, and the nearest civil surgeon is a couple towns away, this is the option I'm leaning towards.

Does anyone have any relevant experience? Has anyone else successfully not submitted even the ds-3025?

Could we include a note explaining that he wasn't given a copy?
Are we basically just asking for an RFE here? Even if we are, I'm tempted to let that happen, because at least by then he will have health insurance. We can't afford to pay hundreds of dollars for the full medical exam and all his vaccinations again.

He's pretty certain they're all in order, but we just don't have proof.
This won't earn us a rejection, will it?? Oh the stress.........

The DS-3025 was included along with the rest of his DS medical documents in the sealed envelope that was turned in at his POE. If you are sure that he received all the required vaccinations, then yes, you can include a note stating he received all required vaccinations at his K-1 medical exam and the DS-3025 is included with his other medical documents that the USCIS is in possession of.

u could let it go and risk an RFE but that could also delay your AOS case and approval. Do a cover letter when you submit your AOS package and explain it. AOS process takes a while so hopefully by then he'll have insurance. Good luck.

As of now, I'm going to include a note that says the ds-3025 was given to immigration, as recommended by KayDeeCee.
Obviously we don't want a delay, but I feel this is our only option at this point.

So, for the record, (and for anyone who might be asking the same question) we were approved, using this method, with no RFE.

Amazing! Your whole AOS time frame was 96 days (3 months and 4 days) from your NOA dates!!!! Congrats!!!!!

I am a little concerned about this for us. Ours says 'blanket waiver', which I think this means we are okay, but I'm not entirely sure. Our health insurance was just adjusted this week to include my husband, but we plan to mail the petition next week. He asked for all the vaccinations at the panel physician, but we aren't too confident he received them all. If we get RFE, we will deal with it then.

I hope we get your results!!!! Congratulations again!!!

Good luck to you! I hope you have the same results as well. Our whole process with AOS went infinitely better and faster than i could ever have dreamed it would. It's pretty crazy!
