Hi everyone,

My fiance is on a K1 and did her medical exam in Brazil a few months ago. Now she is here and it's time to go to a civil surgeon to have him transcribe the I-693 from the DS-3025. However, I don't see any mention of a TB test on the DS-3025. How will the civil surgeon know that this has been done?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,

Drew

The DS-3025 is an immunization worksheet. TB testing (skin test or chest x-ray) is a TEST much like a blood test or urinalysis or EKG. It wouldn't appear on the immunization worksheet. The CS doesn't need to know you've had it. His job is to update your immunizations. The tests are covered in your medical exam overseas and would be in the brown envelope turned in at POE.

Hi everyone,

Ditto to Nich-Nick.

The TB test is part of the medical. You are not required to do ANY part of the medical, just check the immunisations.

personally I took my Xray with me just in case they tried asking that question. There's also this link: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextchannel=68439c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextoid=1758d5b07655b110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD specifically this part:

"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."

You can see the TB skin test is part of part 2, BUT it's not the "vaccination record" as mention as the only part of part 2 to be completed. I took this with me when I went to my CS as well

I was nervous about this as I had heard others received RFEs for not having TB skin test. So, even though my husband had the chest x-ray with his medical, I took him to the health dept. here and had them transcribe the test onto a vaccination card. The CS would not put it on the I-693 because as previously said it is not a vaccine. I simply photocopied the form from the health department and sent a letter explaining that he had both the chest x-ray and the skin test. We had no problems. I don't think that it is necessary to go to the extra trouble, but it made me feel more secure. That being said, there really is no logical reason for them to deny based on having a chest x-ray without a skin test since the x-ray is more conclusive. Of course we all know how logical USCIS is...but I honestly think you are fine without it. :) Good luck on your journey!

When it comes to the I-693, the CS will take the DS-3025 [English version of your vaccination records] and transfer the information to the I-693. Based on the age and now a US resident, the individual may be required to comply with US Health Regulations, most cases the petitioner has all required records.. HOWEVER, any other records written in any other language other than English, may not be accepted by the CS and you may be required to re-do the test.. The CS has the "professional obligation" to bring the individual up today with US health standards..

All this to say.. If you find a understanding CS you may not go through a lot of obstacles.
