answered "no" to chicken pox question wrongly (split topic)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway you could post a photo of your DS-3025? You may be fine and aren't interpreting it correctly. Civil surgeons can gouge you for a lot of money.

Yes, as long as your medical was within the past year, it is okay. Read that in the I-693 instructions. The six month thing is for visa travel.

I had my medical yesterday and the doctor confused me about the measles and varicella so I answered 'no' to the chicken pox question, only for my mum to then tell me today that I did in fact have it as a child and it's logged in my baby book at home. She can even remember when it happened in detail.

On my form though there is a tiny mark in the 'Varicella History' box where he was about to tick it before the confusion so I'm hoping the AOS agent accepts it. Also, page 2 states "This K non-immigrant visa applicant did receive the required vaccines and the US vaccination requirements are complete for this applicant." He did mark it with the 'D' waiver though.

I think I'll take my chances with an RFE and deal with it when/if it happens. If it does happen am I correct in assuming that a copy of my baby book and a signed statement from my mum won't be enough to satisfy the adjudicator? I don't see how taking the vaccine when I'm already immune will do me any good.

IF you get an RFE, I would simply explain that to the civil surgeon you see that's willing to transcribe the vax sheet for you on how to proceed. Your redbook/and or/copy of the DS3025 should be fine for the civil surgeon. We just took our DS3025 copy and a printout he had from his doctor.

Your medical was yesterday, so nothing is turned in yet because they wait on the bloodwork results from the lab. . Call Knightsbridge and explain so they can redo your form before it is sent to the embassy. Ask them to mail you a copy of the revised DS-3025.

Your medical was yesterday, so nothing is turned in yet because they wait on the bloodwork results from the lab. . Call Knightsbridge and explain so they can redo your form before it is sent to the embassy. Ask them to mail you a copy of the revised DS-3025.

I called them this morning and they told me to email my request, so I did. This was their response:

"Thank you for your email. Unfortunately I cannot update the form as your medical has already been sent to the embassy. You were given the DS 3025 which you will need for your Adjustment of Status, they will ask you again about the Chicken Pox then and you will be able to let them know."

I can scan my baby book and have a written statement from my mum along with this email as evidence of correspondence. If I send this all with my AOS application do you really think they'll still demand I see a civil surgeon? And if so, will I just need to essentially get an updated version of the DS-3025 from the US surgeon with the chicken pox bit ticked off?

Of course you will need a civil surgeon. USCIS does not evaluate baby books. They want to see you signed off on an official form by the panel physician (Knightsbridge) or civil surgeon (in the US).

You can only get an updated DS-3025 from Knightsbridge. Civil Surgeons use Form I-693 to record the medical and immunizations. Theoretically you only need the CS to sign off on immunization section of the I-693. (He will accept your Mum's note and baby book). In reality, finding a CS who will not insist you do the entire medical over and charging you $$$ is the problem. Call and ask prices and clarify what you need before making the appointment.

I don't know how far away you will be living in PA, but if you end up never finding a CS that will help you in your area, and were willing to make a trip down near DC, I can recommend a CS that will transcribe for you. Long trip, but once there in and out in ten minutes, and lots of touristy things to do. For future reference if you need it, scan through the pages of this thread and see if there's one in your area: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/231026-civil-surgeons-who-dont-rip-you-off/page-1
