693 and DS-3025 Confusion / AOS

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, My wife is about to submit her AOS after entering the U.S. on a K-1. We are a bit confused regarding what to submit for the medical records.

 

Is it correct that if she had a physical and all shots abroad, prior to K-1 entry, then we can just submit the DS-3025 and not a 693?

 

A second question, the medical examiner abroad binded our whole copy of the medical report together. Will it be a problem if we submit again the whole report, which includes the DS-3025, or is it best to try to pull the 3025 out of the binding?

I would advise you to read the instructions on the USCIS page and use the search bar on this forum. This question has been asked a lot lately and therefore easy to find :) 

 

That said, she doesn't need an I-693 as long as her DS-3025 is marked complete and AOS is filed within one year of the medical. 

 

Where is she from? The medical should be in the sealed enveloppe she got that she handed over when she entered the country on K1, so it shouldn't be in her possession. But maybe her country is different. Only send the DS-3025 as long as it meets both requirements mentioned above.

Totally 100% correct. Provided you completed all vaccinations required on the day of or prior to your overseas medical exam, the PP completed your DS3025 correctly AND you filed AOS within 1 yr of your overseas medical exam date.

You as a beneficiary should not have access to the official documents in the sealed medical packet that was either 1) sent to your embassy directly from your PP or 2) put in a sealed envelope for you to carry to your embassy interview. What I can only assume you are talking about is that your panel physician gave you a PERSONAL copy of the WHOLE medical packet including the DS3025. In that case, remove the DS3025 and photocopy it and submit that photocopy with your I485. Your sealed medical packet was enclosed in the sealed K1 Visa packet that you submitted at your POE and will be sent to USCIS for storage in your A-file and will be retrieved by the IO at your AOS interview. All you will need to bring to your AOS interview concerning your medical is your copy of the DS3025.

Thank you for this info. She is from Sweden. Yes, the medical is in the sealed envelope, but they gave her a second copy to hold onto herself. So, our copy of the DS-3025 is bound with the whole medical, in a sort of binding. Would you submit the whole thing, or should we try to tear it open and remove just the DS-3025 pages? I know an odd question, but wondering if it matters.

To be honest I never heard of this before. My guess is if it's easy to get the DS-3025 out of the package and it doesn't say anywhere 'do not open' or something, just get it out, send a copy of it and take the copy of the medical to the interview. They only require a copy of the DS-3025

Thank you, this is so helpful! And yes, you are right, it is a second, personal copy the physician gave to my wife. The original copy is in the sealed envelope. A little odd it's all binded together, but I will carefully separate and copy just the DS-3025. Thank you again!

Thanks, yes I will separate it, just funny as the physician's office probably thought it looked nice binded, but now just more work to take apart :)
