Has anyone ever tried to complete the medical exam before their interview at the embassy was scheduled and, if so, did doing so result in any problems during the interview or during entry to the United States? This question is in connection with a CR-1 application being processed via the Warsaw embassy. The medical exam was completed before the case even became documentarily qualified by the NVC and the interview has still not yet been scheduled to-date. That said, the interview should be scheduled during the six month window within which the medical exam is allegedly valid for entry to the United States. While the State Department website recommends scheduling the medical exam once the interview is scheduled, there does not seem to be anything strictly prohibiting one from doing so earlier; in any event, it would be helpful to know if anyone else has attempted this and whether doing so was successful or resulted in a problem. As an aside, the embassy-approved doctor did not provide any sealed, hard-copy results; should they have or are the results somehow transmitted electronically between the doctor and the embassy?
We have received the NOA2 and are awaiting word for the interview and medical exam in Rio. My girlfriend has asked me to attend the interview which I will do but our question is about the medical exam. I only have enough time to arrive and attend the interview. Can someone tell me the timeline on getting the medical exam? Must the beneficiary have the results of the exam when attending the interview? I will arrive on Saturday, travel with her to Rio for the interview which I understand is always on Tuesday. Can she get the medical exam on Monday and have the interview on Tuesday? This is very important because I can only stay in Brazil for 4 or 5 days.
My wife (and I) had her AOS interview just recently on December 12, 2020. We just got an RFE letter (sent on Dec 31), saying "you must submit a complete form I-693... that shows that you received the Influenza vaccine." She had her K-1 immigration medical exam before coming to the U.S. on 9/30/2019 (when it was NOT flu season), so she didn't get a flu shot. On her DS-3025, it stated she completed all her vaccination requirements. We filed AOS within one year of her overseas medical so we didn't fill out an I-693. We just sent her DS-3025 paperwork with the I-485 AOS package. Shouldn't her flu shot still be waived since her medical exam wasn't during flu season? Do we have to find a civil surgeon and have him give her just the flu shot and fill out the I-693? Will the DS-3025 be valid for her other vaccinations or is she going to have to go through a whole medical/vaccination exam again? Her overseas medical exam expires on 3/29/2021, which is the date we have to turn in the RFE. Thank you.
