Vaccination Supplement for AOS?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife and I were just married a few days ago, and getting ready to submit the AOS package. She arrived on a K-1 visa, and had her medical exam in Manila last March. As part of the medical, she got all of her vaccinations, an received a DS 3025 form indicating same.

The instructions for the AOS say that she needs only a "vaccination supplement," but all of the local civil surgeons will only do full physical exams for $150 and up. No one seems to know what a "vaccination supplement" is.

I've searched on this forum and elsewhere, and there seems to be a lot of outdated and conflicting information. The USCIS website doesn't even have the I-693a form listed.

QUESTION: Since my wife received ALL required vaccinations, as indicated on her DS 3025 form, would it be sufficient to simply submit a copy of that form? Thanks.

This is a very good recent thread in that forum about AOS vaccinations: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/428381-i-693-report-of-medical-examination-and-vaccination-report/page-4#entry7527782

You DO NOT need a civil surgeon or the I-693. Read page 4, section 7c of the I-485 instructions, you only need a copy of your DS-3025 vaccination record. (but I do suggest because some adjudicators don't know the finer details of the K-1 AOS process make a copy of page 4 of the I-485 instructions, highlight section 7c and attach it to the DS-3025). I have contacted USCIS on this topic as well and they confirmed that the I-693 is only required for special medical conditions.

Follow the instructions sheet for the I-485 from the USCIS website.

Don't waste your money on a CS as you don't need one. Follow Hank's suggestion and you will do fine.

We did not go a CS and submitted the DS 3025 along with these instructions: Green Card in hand with no RFE!

3. What if I am a K nonimmigrant visa holder and already had a medical exam overseas?



If you were admitted as a:


a. K-1 fiancé(e) or a K-2 child of a K-1 fiancé(e); or as a


b. K-3 spouse of a U.S. citizen or a K-4 child of a K-3 spouse of a U.S. citizen; and


c. You received a medical examination prior to admission, then:



(1) You are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485 is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination, and the medical examination did not reveal a Class A medical condition, or if you did have a Class A medical condition, you received a waiver of inadmissibility and have complied with the terms and conditions on the waiver.



(2) Even if a new medical examination is not required, you must still show proof that you complied with the vaccination requirements. If the vaccination record (DS 3025) was not properly completed and included as part of the original overseas medical examination report, you will have to have the vaccination report completed by a designated civil surgeon. In this case, you are required to submit the vaccination record and page 1 of Form I-693.
