Sending GC application without I-693

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

We are trying to send the application by no later than Dec 16, 2016, via overnight fedex especially because the fees will increase effective dec 23, 2016.

My question is, will it be ok to submit the package without the I-693 and submit it later when the RFE comes or is it absolutely necessary to submit the medical form with the application package? My wife and I are within the US, and we don’t care much for the processing times. We just want to beat the increased fee rates.

According to USCIS website:

– Submit Form I-693 by mail, together with your Form I-485, Application to Register for Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, to the location specified for your Form I-485 (see “Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-485”).
– Submit Form I-693 by mail, after filing your Form I-485, to the location specified in your most recent communication with USCIS (for example, a Request for Evidence letter from USCIS).
– Submit Form I-693 in person, at an interview in a USCIS field office (if an interview is required).

Since I am posting this discussion after the above said date, I have already sent the package to the Chicago address. I hope sending the package without the I-693 will not lead to issues with my GC application.

Please advise.

As I believe, you will have to show your I-693 completed at your interview otherwise.

This is pretty much what I was thinking as well based on what is stated on the USCIS website. I dont think I should be any issues getting the medical and DS3025 completed within the coming few weeks.

I just wanted to be sure that they don't deny my application based on simply not sending the medical.

Yes, as the USCIS site states, you can send it with the I-485 or provide it if you get an RFE for it, or bring it to the interview.
