Medical Examination Still Valid?

Hello there,

 

I've conducted my medical examination over a year ago (03/14/18 to be precise) and would like to know if USCIS' revised policy, effective as of November 1st, 2018, is still applicable to me. I applied for my adjustment of status in September 2017 and didn't submit my medical examination at the time. My intention was to conduct it separately and bring the documentation along with me in the future.

 

I was going through this link: https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume8-PartB-Chapter4.html#S-C-4 and stumbled upon the following table:

It seems to me that my case belongs to the third row starting from the top, and should therefore be valid for 2 years. I've just received a notification that my interview had been scheduled and I would rather play it safe though.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

So you haven't submitted Form I-693 to USCIS yet? If you haven't then that table does not apply to you. Look at the other table, "Form I-693 Submitted to USCIS On or After November 1, 2018". Based on the other table you are good.

You're right, I misread the title of the table. However the one you mention is also a bit misleading since the form hasn't been submitted at all?

Read right below that table:

Quote
  • At any time after filing the immigration benefit application but before USCIS finalizes adjudication of that application. If not submitted simultaneously with the immigration benefit application, applicants may bring the medical examination report to an interview or wait until USCIS issues an RFE requesting the medical examination report.

You'll submit it at the interview. The civil surgeon signed it after AOS was filed, thus it's valid until March 2020.
