Green Card interview question

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

HI,

After turning in our I-485 form about 9 months ago we finally have received paperwork for our interview. I have a question about the medical examination (I-693). My wife is from mexico and had a medical examination while we were doing the interview process for her K-1 Visa, but we never recieved any of the paperwork for that. The check list we received for the interview asks for a completed medical exam in a sealed envelope (unless already submitted). Do we have to go to a Dr and do this again or are we in the clear since she did this for the K-1?

Thanks

Your medical exam should have been inlcuded in your AOS packet from a civil surgeon, you do not need another one. The exam done at Juarez is good for a year as well.

Copy that, I actually never sent in the I-693 when I sent in the AOS packet. I was curious if maybe I lucked out and they overlooked it or not, but since she did the exam in Juarez less than a year ago, although we did not get a copy they should have it on file correct? So I should not need to worry about doing another exam? I did get flagged on my AOS packet for not having her birth cert translated and I got that done but never received anything about the medical exam so I am guessing we should be good to go?

Thanks

She should have been given a DS-3025 form with all vaccinations listed the day of the medical exam, if she was given a blank one she was supposed to go see a civil surgeon to get the vaccination portion of the I-693 done. Since you didn't include it in your packet I hope the interview goes well and thats that.

Yeah that's what I was thinking but when she did her exam in Juarez they only gave her the sealed packet that she turned in during her K1 interview. Just becuase it has taken so long to get an interview we just made an appointment with a Civil Surgeon to get an exam done next week just to be 100% sure and not leave anything to chance. Thanks for the help all!
