AOS // Do I Need To See A Civil Surgeon For A New Medical?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I Am waiting for an interview date for my AOS.

I have read online that if you have had a medical examination over seas within a year of filing the i-485 then you don't have to retake the medical.

However i'm worried i may get screwed over a technicality with this wording.

I had my medical on the 16th March 2011 (Just over 11 months ago) and i filed my AOS within 5 months of that (within a year)

I'm worried that when i eventually get an interview date i may get there and find out the medical has to be completed within one year of the interview and so i'll be over...

Does this make sense??

Can anyone clarify for me?

"within a year of filing I-485" means the date you sen it in. But if they do ask for an updated one, don't worry - it only takes a few days. I wouldn't try to anticipate every problem. I take it the reschedule/false denial got all sorted out?
