DS-3025 blank in summary section.....have to get I-693?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our form showes all 4 vaccinations were given. However, the summary section where it says US vaccination requirements COMPLETE (Requesting a Blanket Waiver) is not checked.

From what I read here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/551080-immunizations-ds-3025-or-i-693/

It says (the red part applies to me)

"

1. Shots marked with a date (at least one of a series)

  • MMR (two are required but if you have "insufficient time interval" Code B in the last column, then you get a waiver)
  • Td or Tdap or DT or DTP or DtaP (One date must be no longer than 10 years ago)
  • Varicella (Either a check by "Vaccine" with a date, OR a check by "Varicella History" if you had chickenpox. History gets you a waiver)
  • Influenza (during flu season)** see note below because you may be okay without it. If it is not flu season, the waiver in the last column is Code F.
  • Everything else marked "not age appropriate" Code A, insufficient time interval B, not flu season F, contraindicated C...things that allow a waiver.

NOTE: If you have shots missing and no waiver for them, stop here and see a Civil Surgeon. "Most of the shots" isn't complete. A note from your home country doctor won't count. All shots must be recorded on the DS-3025 or waived. You will have to take your doctor note to a Civil Surgeon and get him to record it on an official form.

2. The new form has a summary section. It may be marked:

"US vaccination requirements COMPLETE (Requesting a Blanket Waiver)"

But instructions I have seen says it is only marked for immigrant visas. I know In London they leave section 2 unmarked at K1 medicals.

3. Signed and dated by the doctor

The unknown with this new form is--will every adjudicator across the US know how to interpret the summary section? Their policy manual says:

"The officer should be aware that civil surgeons may improperly mark the boxes because they may misunderstand the meaning of these boxes. Therefore, the officer should determine, from the vaccination assessment completed by the civil surgeon, whether the applicant received all vaccines, which blanket waivers should be granted, and whether the applicant requires any ​other waivers. The officer should exercise discretion in reviewing the vaccination chart and when evaluating the results boxes at the bottom of the vaccination assessment chart. ​ ​If the civil surgeon did not check any result boxes, the officer should only return the form for corrective action if he or she is unable to ascertain whether the applicant is admissible. "

You have started a few topics on this same subject. The information in the guides can be a bit conflicting. But as others have answered in your previous posts, if the DS3025 is not marked complete USCIS will most likely require the I-693 to transcribe the vaccinations and be signed by a civil surgeon. If you are trying to bypass this step then you can send in the DS3025 that you have and see if you get an RFE for the I-693 I guess.

There are many previous posts on this same topic. Look in the AOS forum. There have been several in the past couple months.

Ok thanks so much for your input. Why would they not mark it complete if all the shots were given? It makes no sense other than human error.

The guide is very confusing because it said it would be blank on NON immigrant visas.

My Doc said smth like "And this little box is important so that you don't get problems over there" before checking it. This was before I knew that it was important. :sleepy:

I don't think anyone can answer that you definitely will or will get an RFE. You'll have to make a judgement call... risk it or not
