Vaccination recors for k-1 adjustment status

Is that just the paper the doctore gave the k-1 visa holder? It says i-693 but it seems like a form but they didn't give my husband a form like the other forms just a paper saying he has all vaccines and that he passed his medical?? Would that be the paper?

i-693 is only needed if a K1 medical within one year was not performed or if there were missing shots or a DS-3025 that was not correctly filled out.

The DS-3025 is the vaccination worksheet, and is enough if the above is true.

I-693 is the form that civil surgeons within the US use. You would not get an I-693 from the K-1 exam abroad from a panel physician. You are most likely talking about the DS-3025. K-1 applicants are supposed to receive a copy of their DS-3025 at their medical. See this pinned topic > http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/551080-immunizations-ds-3025-or-i-693/

Sorry for late reply, hope it's in time to help. He should have gotten a DS-3025 but apparently the doctor in CR doesn't do this. The original DS-3025 is in the sealed envelope your husband turned in at the border. USCIS is supposed to link up your AOS file to that envelope. It appears that they fail to do this a good portion of the time. Either way, if you read the instructions for the I-693, you'll see that K1s are exempted from it as long as you apply for AOS within 12 months of the medical and the DS-3025 was properly filled out and wound up in that sealed envelope. So don't do the I-693. If you get an RFE for it (like we did), you can pay a civil surgeon to do it for you (and if you don't have any vaccination records at all, he'll need to get hose again first), or contact your congressman's office and have them clear it up.

 

This happens to lots of people and unfortunately seems to happen to a lot of CR people because that doctor doesn't give us copies of DS-3025 so we don't even have the option to "only" pay the civil surgeon to transcribe the vaccination supplement (which is NOT necessary but a lot of people do because they don't know it's not necessary and/or they get an RFE and don't want to risk it).
