Filed: K-1 Visa Country: United Kingdom

hey were just about ready to send off the AOS packet and get started on that road, but have just checked the vaccine record i got from the medical for the K-1.

we were always told that just sending off the DS-3025 vaccination document worksheet thing we got from the k-1 medical would be all that was needed with regards to a medical as its valid for a year,

hope all that makes sense?

anyway at the bottom where it says results i just noticed the 'incomplete' box is ticked with the sub catagory of 'may be elligable for blanket waiver because not medicaly appropriate'.

this is because i had chicken pox as a child and they dont offer this jab in the UK.

what are peoples experiences here? we shouldnt have an issue with this should we?

You could go ahead and send that, a lot of people have done it and were okay. The worst that could happen is you get an RFE or they could lose your medical completely and its a pretty easy fix either way. It's really your call, but I have seen a lot who got away with just sending that. I personally knew I couldn't because I lacked the Tdap shot. Goodluck! :)

You missed some of the details. Any DS-3025 may not be acceptable. They'll give you a DS-3025 whether you got the required shots needed for AOS or not. Some doctors fail to sign them. Some fail to complete the results section. I will say Knightsbridge clinic is very good at completing those forms if you got your shots and told them you had chickenpox.

There are certain things your DS-3025 should have to be considered complete.

Look at your DS-3025. If it has the following items, you don't need an I-693.

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

  • MMR
  • Td or Tdap or DT or DTP or DtaP (date no longer than 10 years ago)
  • Varicella or VH written by it if you had chickenpox

2. Everything else marked not age appropriate or medically appropriate.

3. RESULTS section filled in with "incomplete". AND "may be eligible for blanket waiver"

4. Signed and dated by the doctor

If it's not completed like that then see a civil surgeon for the I-693. If it is complete, send a photocopy of your DS-3025.

Do NOT do what Willouby did recently and send in a blank I-693 along with it. Do one or the other.

The USCIS is supposed to have your medical files, but sometimes lose them or fail to match them up with your AOS. Do not get another exam unless you get an RFE that says they do not have results of your medical. It means they lost them, but you are probably stuck with paying for a new exam.

I'm positive if you can understand what I've posted and can follow directions, you can get a greencard without an I-693. The DS3025 has to have all those things, not just some of them. Incomplete is fine if the box about blanket waiver is also ticked.
