Looks like another medical exam? Lost I-693?

Our application was transferred to CSC and we thought everything was going well and maybe an interview waiver, but now we just got an RFE for another I-693. We went to the civil surgeon and everything was sent in the sealed envelope last April 2011. We have until 7/25 to get another one. Is there a way around this?

TIA

perhaps is error ?

Call USCIS, get a Tier 2 Human, an ISO, and inquire about the location of the medical packet. Ask the ISO to put in a 'find the medical packet' request.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

I called 800-375-5283 listed on the RFE, no options on talking to anyone. How do you get a Tier 2 Human?

call USCIS when they are open (never on the weekends) - check your old NOA-2 on the K-1 visa, it's __that__ number .

smells like a lost medical packet (the one that was handed over at the POE).

You can hassle a local CBP officer at the secondary inspection / deferred inspection office IN PERSON, to have them find the medical packet, show you proof of valid handoff to the USCIS official, but expect half a day (no appointment needed, find the closest office and just go, speak to the shift supervisor)

or

you can ask the Tier 2 human, an ISO, to initiate a search request for the medical packet, over the phone, during business hours on Monday.

Just because you got a postal notification that they don't have it at the USCIS office responsible for AOS adjudication, doesn't mean it doesn't exist - that medical packet is somewhere, even if it fell off someone's desk - a 'search request' will find it .

Could you type exactly what the RFE said? You said you already sent in a I-693? Did it say it was filled out wrong or there were parts missing?

Darnell, I will give them a call on Monday, thanks a bunch. I saw other posts about contacting congressmen, but that takes a lot of time and I only have until 7/26 so your way sounds best.

Harpa:

The document says "A review of the applicant's USCIS records fails to reveal Form DS-2053,DS-3024,DS-3025 or DS-3026. The medical examination you had done prior to entering the United States has not arrived in your file. Please provide a new medical examination.

When you did the I-693 was it a FULL medical, or what it just a vaccination transcription?

The medical was done in China, the vaccinations done here in NC.

Okay. when you say you sent an I-693 you need to specify it was the vaccination transcription only otherwise people think it's a full medical that you submitted and they couldn't find it.

SO! They lost the K1 medical, and are now requesting an I-693 complete medical.. Advice is this:

1. Go and get a medical done by a CS and submit the I-693 (this will mean TB skin test and normal medical stuff like in china)

2. Try and request a copy of the medical from China (this works in some countries, not others)

3. Make an INFOPASS and ask them to check your A file for the medical.

4. Get your congressman/senator involved to find what SHOULD have been in your packet

I personally would try and organise #2 first, find out how much #1 will set you back and then it doesn't hurt to try #3 and #4. Up to you which way you go. Some people just do #1 to save the time and hassles.

Good luck with your choice!

See again it sounds like you're saying that you completed an ENTIRE I-693. If ONLY the vaccination section of the I-693 was done it's called a "vaccination transcription". Whether you had the transcription done or not, they've lost your medical so now you need to go do any of the options I wrote above.. bearing in mind if you do the medical again you WILL be getting the vaccination section of the I-693 done again and you'll pay for that again (along with the rest of the medical stuff).

Do you have a copy of her overseas medical anywhere? Not the vaccination part, the MEDICAL part (some people do.. I do). If you do just sent a copy with the RFE, if you DON'T then, see the options above in my previous post.

Yes, we had the vaccinations done here and transcribed by the Civil surgeon. Although more expensive, I think it will be easier to just get another medical here and be done with it. Thanks again.

Thank for the help everyone. But calling the Tier 2 ISO was a waste, they are clueless and not helpful. They wanted me to write a letter requesting a search, then they would put it in my file and make their decision on the green card based on what they have. (In a nice way, give them what they want or else).

We are going to just get a new medical and I-693.

By the way, this was the 2nd time they screwed up. They also took bad fingerprints and we had to make a 2nd five hour drive to have those done again. But they really don't care.

After all this I'm thinking about moving to another country, lol... Vent off :)
