No, it's only one 693.....for the AOS you need the "Medical Supplement" which is the 693A.

What you should have tried to get was a copy of the 693 so it would be easier for you when you had to go to the Civil Surgeon in the U.S. to get the "Supplement - 693A" filled out.

No biggie.....

The 693A Medical Supplement is used to verify you have all the shots you are suppose to have. By getting a copy of the 693 from the "Medical" it might save you from paying/getting these shots again once you are in the U.S.


This was just posted in another forum.....

Are all adjustment of status applicants required to have a medical examination?

Most applicants for adjustment of status are required to have a medical examination. The medical examination must be conducted by a civil surgeon who has been designated by the USCIS. The examination must be documented using Form I-693, Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status.


2. Ks: If you were admitted to the United States as a fiance(e) (K-1), child of a fiance(e) (K-2), Spouse of a U.S. citizen (K-3), or child of K-3 (K-4), and received a medical examination prior to admission, then you do not require another medical examination as long as your application for adjustment of status (Form I-485) is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. You will, however, be required to submit a vaccination supplement with our adjustment of status application. The vaccination supplement must be completed by a designated civil surgeon.

They don't give out copies of the I-693.....that would be a copy of the complete medical.

What they should have tried to get is a copy of the vaccination worksheet (DS-3025, if I'm not mistaken), which would indeed make it easier for them to get the I-693a filled out for AOS. :)

Maybe they can try and contact the doctor's office where they did the medical and ask them to send a copy...?
