i have few question about I-693(medical exam) and i-485

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i currently live in a small city where is only one civil surgeon and i'm having a tough time getting an appointment  , i'm considering

seeing another doctor in a city 3 hours away.                                    

 

- are doctors allowed to mail the sealed envelope to the applicant or it has to be picked up in person?

- does sending the i-485 with the i-693 slow down the process? or it does't matter as long as i send it when requested 

 

what would you do if you are in my situation ?

Did you receive and RFE to complete a new medical examination?  I am not sure what visa you are adjusting from, but if it is a K1 and your entry and marriage are fairly recent along with you AOS application then there should be no reason to do another medical.  If you are required to do a new medical, then the civil surgeon should provide the sealed envelope to you for your submission.

 

Good Luck!

USCIS doesn’t care how the Civil Surgeons give you back the sealed i-693 package. The one you submit to USCIS has to be appear sealed by the civil surgeon. You need to ask the one you are going to see whether they will mail it to you or not.

 

You are not required to submit i-693 with i485. Later on USCIS will likely tell you to bring that for the interview if not submitted with i485.

Also make sure you are using the most recent version of the forms found on the USCIS website

Applicant doesn't prepare the I693, that is the responsibility of the CS.


YMMV

thank you for all the answers, i am an asylee so a medical exam is required . i have already sent my i-485  and will have my medical exam next week  but the validity of the i-693 is confusing . should i wait until i get an interview notice/RFE   or just do it next week since it will be valid for 2 years .
