New TB, Vaccination, Blood Test Requirement

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I have a question....

So, what are the new requirements for AOS health wise?

I thought new requirements are on TB skin test and vaccination...

Then, on the other posts on VJ, some people are talking about taking HIV and Syphilis blood test again....

Can someone tell me what the new requirements filing for AOS is?

*Do I need to have HIV and Syphilis blood test?

*What else do we need?

I entered with K1 visa. But, since I do not wanna receive RFE, I think I will comply with those new regulations anyway....

I went to have my vaccination info transferred to I-693... I am at least lucky that they said that they can redo the paperwork for me.

Thanks a lot.

I'm not clear about my situation. I had my medical done back in April, but I just sent in my I-130 and I-485 package this week. Will I need a new medical?

Hello.

Thanks for your reply. :star:

My medical was done on July 14, 2008. So, I figured that I need to have TST. (When I had my medical for K1, the doctor did not perform TST. He took only the X-ray.)

So, I went back and had TST yesterday, waiting to see the result on Monday.

The civil surgeon will complete the TB part of I-693 and vaccination part.

I think that is enough.

slapointe: I think you do not need to meet either of those new requirements since your medical exam date is April.

Thanks

Nao
