Question My fiances medical date will be more than 6 months at POE. There is some confusion as some information indicates the exam can not be more than 6 months old to request the visa? But then can be a year old or less to do AOS. I asked the embassy and they then said 1 year. I just want to avoid a problem for her at POE. I am figuring we will have to re due it here. What is the age requirement for the Medical exam at POE? 65monhs or less? or 1 year or less?

I am somewhat confused by what you are asking. There is no medical exam at the POE. That is simply where you go through CBP inspection, they take the sealed envelope, you might be asked a few basic questions, and then are given your I-94 and told to marry within 90 days.

For AOS, you do not need a new medical if your medical for the K-1 interview was performed within the year prior to filing.

The medical timeline is for interview / to obtain visa. At AOS, you will need to be up-to-date on any missing vaccine. Medical will offer vaccine for a fee, but may not be able to complete process as some require several injections over a period of time.

No. You only need the first one in a series for AOS. You do not have to wait until a series would be complete to file.

Sorry for the confusion. Her medical will be less than 6 months old when we go for the visa interview. But it will older than 6 months when she enters the USA on the visa. I know at POE they will take the sealed envelope. By the time we need to do AOS the medical could be over 1 year old and therefore may need to be done again here. So is she OK to enter USA with a medical over 6 months old but less than 1 year?

There will be an expiration date on her K-1 visa. That date is how long she has to use it to enter the US. Usually it is 6 months, but it can be shorter because of medical exam issues. When she receives her visa, just make sure she uses it to enter before the expiration date that is printed on it.

OP - Jay Kay is correct.

The expiration date on the visa is based off the medical (normally 6 months). As long as you use visa prior to expiration, you should be good. If you AOS before year of getting medical, you don't need another medical.

I hope this helps!

I understand what you are saying. It appears that they expiration date for the K1 is set to 6 months FROM the date of the medical. So if the medical is let's say 4 months old at the time of your interview, your visa could very well be issued with only 2 months remaining.

If you NEED more time, as much as it really sucks, you might have to have her do the medical over. That way you'd get a longer issued visa.

At interview, our medical was two months old. When we got the visa in hand, it was only good for four months. It's enough time for us, no problem. But I was surprised, as I expected it to be issued for six months.
