Hello,

My fiance submitted form I-129F on May 15th, 2020.

I know that I will need to have my medical exam and my background check (from all countries I lived in) ready for the interview.

My question is:

1. can I go ahead and start requesting that background check and do the medical exam or do i need to wait for a special permission from the USCIS prior to doing those?

 

Thanks in advance for your help

No. You are getting waaayyy too ahead of yourself. You still have to wait for the NOA2 (assuming he already received the NOA1), then it gets sent to NVC and then to the embassy. There is no telling when that will happen. Both medicals and police clearances have expiration dates and are surely to expire if you were to obtain them now. You can however make things a bit easier and make yourself a timeline of dates and addresses of where you lived, obtain your vaccination record and continue to gather proof of your relationship so when the time comes you have this information. I imagine all your documents are in English (birth, previous marriage/divorce certificates) if not you can work on getting those translated as well.

Too soon for that. And you might get more information if you post on the correct part of the forum.

Not sure about your country, but for Singapore's procedures, the clinic i did my medical at and my local police authority both required a scan of the embassy letter before they will allow me to apply for anything. So you might not be able to get the medical or police certificate even if you want to.

The medical offices in Canada will not allow you to do the medical until you have an interview booked.  That is quite some time in the future for you.  You could get police certificates for other countries now as long as you don't plan on visiting them again before your interview, but I would hold off on the Canadian one until you have NOA2.
