I-693 Question - K1 Visa Holder

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Vietnam
Timeline

My wife (then Fiancee) came here on a K1 Visa and we are now ready to send in the AOS package. My question is do we need to complete the I-693? She had her examination prior to the interview and received one round of vaccinations. I don't think the vaccinations were complete.

Can we send in all the other forms now and then complete the I-693 later? I am worried we cannot get the vaccinations/civil surgeon done before our deadline to submit AOS docs.

Any advice is appreciated.

There is no deadline for submitting AOS. What deadline do you think you have?

It is suggested that you have a CS transcribe the vaccination records onto the 693; it is added insurance against possibly receiving an RFE.

She is here on a K1 Visa and we thought the deadline was 90 Days from her date of entry for us to get married and then submit the I485 and other docs.

The deadline is 90 days for marriage. Not the I-485. But very highly suggested to file I-1485 as soon as you obtain all the documents required. I filed the AOS within 3 - 4 weeks since the US arrival date. The sooner you file for it, the faster the green card will come. So will EAD and AP if you file together. Since it is free why not. In the meantime, get the SS# while waiting, joint checking account, add health insurance...

No. You need to complete the I-693 and submit together. We went to a health center and they did it for $200 including vaccinations and gave us the immunization card for record. They prepared the I-693 for us and sealed it in envelope. They provided a copy for us before they sealed it.

If her vaccinations are not complete, then she needs to get the missing vaccinations and have them transcribed to I-693. You are supposed to send it with I-485. No deadline for AOS; just send it as soon as you gather all the necessary forms and documents.

She needs a "vaccination transcription" not an ENTIRE I-693. It's just part 1, part 2 (vaccination table ONLY) and part 5. it's in the instructions for the I-693 form. Should be around $50 (plus missing shots).

I called around today to find someone that wouldn't charge me $200 just for the transcription. It was difficult, but I was finally able to find an office that would do it. All the transcription will be done by a nurse, rather than the actual civil surgeon. Is that ok?

The civil surgeon has to sign off on Part 5. If the actual doctor does not do that, then no, it is not ok. The nurse cannot sign in place of the CS.

It was the same for me. Doctors rarely actually GIVE the shots but he would have been the one to check out the form and see what you needed and sign off on it once the nurse did her part. Kinda like how lawyers have secretaries do their paperwork.

That is crazy! Where in California are you? I can recommend you a CS that did mine transcription for $50, he is in Southern Cali (Ventura county). You can also browse this thread to find an affordable CS: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/231026-civil-surgeons-who-dont-rip-you-off/

I know, it's horrible! We're in Northern Cali (Sonoma county). Did the CS also give you the vaccines you needed?

Oh ok, I hope you can find one closer to you in that thread then! Yes, the CS gave me the vaccine I was missing, but you can get them done anywhere else (cheaper) and bring proof of it to CS who will transcribe it to I-693.
