medical exam?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi everyone, my wife arrived here in los angeles via K-3 and we are on our way to AOS.

kinda confused about her medical exam, she already had her physical/medical exam in the philippines last may 2007.

as far as i know, she doesnt need to have another physical/medical exam right?

instead, just the immunization records. what does she needs? is it the I-693 or I-693A?

what is the difference between I-693 and I-693A?

Where can i find the I-693A? i dont see it in the uscis website.

im confused with this medical exam process. need help guys.

God bless.

Just the vaccination supplement is needed for K-Visas, whe you call around for a Civil Surgeon to do the supplement you must be clear and firm that all you want is a supplement done, most like to quote a full medical.

I-693 is the full medical, I-693A is just the supplement.

You can print out this for the doctor to fill out:


I also took a copy of I-485 instructions to the doctor to point at the paragraph about supplement for K-Visas.

I am confused too. My husband already got his medical exam for his K1 visa in Peru. Immigration should have all the paperwork for this. However, we don't have a copy or any evidence that we had the I-693 done in Peru b/c all the paperwork was in that sealed envelope of course and handed off...

The medical paperwork from your home country is supposed to be handed down to the USCIS by the immigration agents. Sometimes it takes a while.

You need to find any vaccination document that you have to bring to the CS, or else contact the CS you went to in your home country and ask for a copy of the vaccination document that was filled in.

Yes, it's stupid that the AoS package has to include the I-693A vaccination supplement but that's the way it is... don't be confused because immigration asks for it. You're right, they ought to have it, but they're asking for it again... don't ask questions and just get the form to them!

Find Civil Surgeons in your area using the locator service on www.uscis.gov, "shop around" for the cheapest one who will fill that form out for you and you're done. All you should have to do is show them your vaccination record, not get a full physical... if they try to convince you otherwise, argue that you know what you need, and if they still don't accept, go see another doctor.
