Help with health check forms

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

My health check is scheduled next week. I have some questions about it, please help!

1, I am planning to get the required vaccinations here in Latvia. As I know, later when I apply AOS, I need to provide the Form I-693. But if I can get a copy of DS-3025 next week in Latvia, then later I-693 won't be needed. Is that correct?

2, What if the doctor here in Latvia doesn't provide copy of DS-3025? What should i do? There is only one panel physician in Latvia.

3, Are those sufficient immunizations for the AOS later? "DT*, MMR*, Varicella, *flu in season". coz those are the ones panel physician listed on the paper she sent it to me.

I don't want to unnecessarily repeat the immunizations. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks guys!!

From what I understand, you still need page 1 of I-693 for AOS... which is obnoxious. Paying to see another doctor when you've already done the job abroad. You can always try to just submit your completed DS-3025 from Latvian DR but I'm unsure if you will get RFE or not.

My husband took completed DS-3025 to Civil Surgeon in US and he filled out page 1 of I-693, but they didn't accept DS-3025 from Latvian DR because she didn't include all dates on it. Luckily we also had print out of labs (antibody tests) from Gulbja Lab and those they accepted as proof. Whole process was a pain and another $80.

Latvian DR provided us with copy of DS-3025 for no additional fee. Just ask for it.

Also, don't repeat immunizations. Go to Gulbja or some lab for antibody tests for the required immunizations for proof that you already had them if that is the case. You can show that to Latvian DR and she will accept it.
