arrowRFE for I693, but I adjusted from a K1

Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has encountered a similar RFE?


I am adjusting from  a K1, my timeline is pasted below. I got an RFE on Sept 22, 2014 asking for I-693. The RFE box checklist was checked for "Form I-693, Medical Examination. A USCIS Civil Surgeon must complete the medical examination and immunization supplement. These original documents must be returned to USCIS in an envelope sealed by the civil surgeon's office. USCIS notes you submitted a copy of your Vaccination Documentation Worksheet; however, USCIS does not have evidence you completed your Medical Examination for Immigrant, and the Vaccination Documentation Worksheet you provided was not sealed by the civil surgeon".


I thought that this I-693 was supposed to be in the sealed brown envelope that I handed to the Immigration line at POE? I had no access to this document as it was in the sealed brown envelope. I only had a copy of the DS-3025 which I included in my AOS packet. 


I received this letter from the Columbus Field Office. Is it an overflow office, and perhaps they are inexperienced with K1 adjustment AOS?



Thank you

arrowGot a job

Eventually after 4 weeks of job hunting, I was able to land a job offer. The position is of a staff accountant/finance analyst working for a Business Process Outsourcing firm. The company that I will be working for is a start up BPO which intends to bring back outsourcing jobs  to American shores. 


It is ironic that I got a job here since this is a company whose motto is to get jobs home and create opportunities for Americans mainly individuals with military background. Since my last relevant job was working for a BPO in India where I was dealing with American clients--this company thought my BPO pedigree and experience would help them. 


If anybody is around the Hampton, Norfolk, Newport News area in Virginia they would be well advised to apply here as there are around 100 jobs available with this company at the present moment and around 600 jobs eventually.

Hi Everyone,

We received our NOA2 a few days ago after 8 months! My fiancé is currently here in the states and I was wondering if it will be ok to finish and wait for this process to finish while he is here. His mailing address is to here in the states, so we will get all forms here, but would it it be ok for him to be here up until the medical exam and interview? Right now his ticket back to NZ is Nov 17, and he would like to stay here as long as possible before going back for the medical and interview. 


Thank you to anyone who can help!

Hi VJers,


I have recently received my K1 packet 3 and have a question regarding the difference between the Confirmation and Receipt of DS 160.


I am about to Send through Immediately the First Part including the Confirmation printout of the DS 160. That part is Clear.


The Second part states to return signed and dated checklist statement with a copy of online DS 160 Receipt.


I am not sure what to send back in the second part, a Copy of the Confirmation printout again?



Could someone who has recently filed in New Zealand please let me know.


Thank you.

arrowInterview waiver cases - timeline

Apologies if this has already been asked - I scrolled back a couple pages and couldn't see anything.


Is there any chance of adding interview waiver case details to AOS timelines, whether it be a simple "Interview Waiver Case: Y/N" or "Interview Waiver Letter Received Date" field? At present there doesn't seem to be a way of tracking when interview waiver letters are received or cases are approved.
