Hello Everyone!!!!

 

Not sure if this topic has been discussed but I couldn't find anything on it. Does anyone have an idea or the list of the vaccinations the foreign fiance has to get in their country. I've seen a few comments stating that they are expensive. I understand some of the vaccinations have to be done in an US embassy approved medical center, however I believe there are some that can be waived if the foreign fiance has prove they have received it as child or teenager. My fiance is from Dominican Republic and I would like for him to get his shots before we even get the NOA2. If anyone has information on this please let me know. 

 

Thank you

Most people only need 4 vaccinations - MMR, TDAP, varicela (chicken pox) and flu during flu season. Some individual cases require more depending on age and health and such. If you have medical records showing you've received them, that's enough, if not best to get them before entering the U.S; at your medical or elsewhere.

You have two choices. First is to get your vaccinations done there in your country as they are usually cheaper. Second is not to vaccinate but you will need them once you start your AOS submittal. If you didn't have them completed in your country then you will need to see a "civil surgeon" (here in the US) for them to either administer your vaccinations or to transpose them to the I-693 for your AOS package. CS will charge you anywhere from $75 - $250 for this service. Either way you must have vaccinations to complete your AOS for the 2 year green card.

 

From the Form I-693 instructions (page 6-7):

 

"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 Part 7. Vaccination Record completed by a designated civil surgeon. In this case, you must submit Parts 1., 2., 4., and 7. of Form I-693."
