Form I-693 for AOS interview required?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good day to all,

 

I'm scheduled for AOS interview on December 2018 and the notice says that I need to have a completed medical examination (Form I-693) and Vaccination supplement in a sealed envelope (unless already submitted).

 

My question is do I really need to complete the Form I-693?? 

I have read in Form I-693  instructions that:  K-1 fiance visa is not required to have another medical examination within a year of filing AOS (I-485). I've included a copy of my DS 3025 (Vaccination record) when I filed the I-485, showing Completed Vaccination Requirements. 

 

Here's my timeline:

Medical Examination Overseas (SLEC, Philippines) : FEBRUARY 14, 2018

Sputum exam cleared and Vaccination Completed : APRIL 27, 2018

K1 Interview: MAY 2018

Arrived to US and got married: JUNE 2018

AOS Filed: JUNE 28, 2018

Scheduled for interview (Baltimore, MD):  DECEMBER 20, 2018 

 

Thank you so much for your replies...

If your interview letter states you are required to bring a I-693, then you are to follow the instructions as written and bring it to your interview. Simply means your field office has reviewed your AOS filing and determined that based on your DS-3025 it may be incomplete. Take a copy of your DS-3025 with you to the US civil surgeon so that they see what you have already completed so they know how to assess and complete your I-693.

Take notice of the "unless already submitted" part. Since you already submitted it there is no need to bring a new one.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't submit a form I-693 in my AOS application. I only included the DS 3025 Vaccination requirement

Thank you for your reply, so that would mean I don't need a new medical examination and just find a civil surgeon to transcribe my Vaccination records in the form I-693?

i think i will have the same problem soon 😅 but i got some vaccination that i didnt get from st lukes like hepa A.. I think it is best to consult with the civil surgeon for more info about required vaccination..its what i would do if i ever got my interview appointment and received a letter saying to complete i-693 and didnt say unless already submitted..i read here in vj that immunization from st lukes valid for 1 year from the date it was taken..but its worth it to check uscis website its always useful.

If you are a K1 and completed your medical with 1 year of applying for AOS, you dont need a new one.

You fall under "unless already submitted". No, YOU didnt submit it when you applied for AOS BUT your medical package that was in your yellow visa package that you handed in at your POE contained it. It has been sent to USCIS from your POE. So yes, you already submitted your medical regardless of whether or not it is on a I693 form.

You don’t need the I-693 because your medical was done abroad. You already submitted the vaccine form which is great. You should be perfectly fine. Ours was the same way and we had no issues getting our GC

This is completely incorrect. You don’t need the I-683. All GC appointment letters state to bring the i-683 unless already submitted. It is submitted as part of the yellow packet at POE. OP should have submitted the vaccine form with AOS. If not OP can bring it to the interview no problem. No need to go to a civil surgeon at all.

Do not waste your money and find a civil surgeon. That poster was incorrect. You’re absolutely fine for your interview your medical is less than a year old and your vaccines are complete and submitted. I-693 was submitted at POE. Everything is in order ☺️

Thank you so much, I also find it odd to have it transcribed again from a US Civil Surgeon because that will be redundant.
