AOS questions

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJers,

I only got 2 vaccines shots in the Philippines because the rest of the vaccines were not age appropriate for me and the other one i didn't have it because of insufficient time interval, according to the vaccine sheet that I got from Saint Luke. Now my question is, this will qualify me to have this vaccination sheet be transcribed by a doctor here or do i need to be vaccinated with that other vaccine that I didn't have in the Philippines because of insufficient time?

My second question is, is it true that AOS application don't have certain time limit to file it?

Please let me know guys. I'll appreciate it very much.

All you need is the sheet they gave your fiancee with her shot record. We went to Kaiser and got the TDP and Flu shot before the interview. We just showed the AO the reciept from Kaiser.

Technically, there is no time limit for filing the AOS, however, once the 90 period ends from the time she arrived at the POE, she will be out of status. She would be in a grey area, that technically she is out of status, however she meets the conditions for AOS. Best to aplly for the AOS and EAD right away. That way she has a receipt (NOA#!) that shows she has filed, and within a couple months, she will have an EAD that qualifies as a proof of legal presence document. For K-1, the only way to get the EAD is to file for it the same time as you file for the AOS.

Additionally, the medical she had at St. Lukes expires after one year. If you don't complete the AOS within that period of time, she will have to do the medical over again here, and that one is expensive!

Thank you Mr. Bill, You've answered my questions completely.

You need to be vaccinated with the other vaccines that you did not have from the Philippines. Record of vaccination from St Lukes and the US doctor would be transcribed by a Civil Surgeon. A sealed I-693 envelope would be given to you by the Civil surgeon for submission to USCIS. I-693 is a new AOS requirement implemented this year.

There is no certain time limit for AOS but it is recommended that you file ASAP.

I keep hearing about this every now and then, but have not seen the requirement listed in the instructions for the I-485, or the cover leter from the local office listing things to bring to the AOS interview. Could you please provide a cite? In our case, and all others we know that have completed AOS, or are currently going through AOS, we have not heard about this requirement.

When an applicant for AOS interview received their interview appointment letter. It is specifically stated on the letter to bring I-693 unless submitted earlier... Its indicated on my interview appoitment as well as my friends who had their interview last april and may.

There is a lot of confusion on this requirement since it is not specifically indicated on I-485. The applicant has to read the I-693 form to understand the requirement.

Found the information on the I-693:

Q: If an applicant is required to receive only the vaccinations, and not undergo the entire medical exam, does he/she have to submit the entire Form I-693?

No. Applicants who are not required to have the entire medical examination need to submit only pages one, three and five of the new form. The required sections include Part 1, Information About You, the vaccination record portion of Part 2, and Part 5 (if the vaccinations are administered by a civil surgeon) or Part 6 (if the vaccinations are administered by a local health department). Pages two and four, that would have been left blank, do not need to be submitted.

Q: Does a designated civil surgeon have to sign Part 6 of Form I-693, or can the health department immunization staff sign it?

The signature in Part 6 must be the physician at the health department. It may be an original or stamped signature. The health department nurse or other health care professional may, but is not required to, co-sign the vaccination supplement. Part 6 will only be completed for those applicants who are filing based on refugee status.

Here is all the information (including the vaccination requirements) here:

I have to give the heads-up to some friends who just did their biometrics in May. Thanks.

Thank you guys for clearing things to me. Very helpful to me and to those who will have their AOS.
