USCIS is Temporarily Extending Validity Period of Medical Exams

Posted by Marcin Muszynski | Aug 12, 2021 | 0 Comments

Beginning Aug. 12, 2021, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is temporarily extending the validity period for Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, from two years to now four years due to COVID-19-related delays in processing.

USCIS may consider a completed Form I-693 as valid if: 

  • The civil surgeon's signature is dated no more than 60 days before the applicant filed Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status;
  • No more than four years have passed since the date of the civil surgeon's signature; and
  • A decision on the applicant's Form I-485 is issued on or before Sept. 30, 2021.

USCIS is on track to approve more employment-based adjustment of status applications than it has since FY 2005.  USCIS has prioritized employment-based adjustment of status applications during every step of its processing and adjudication during this fiscal year. USCIS continues to make processing and resource allocation decisions to increase the pace of adjudications and limit the potential for employment-based visa numbers to go unused.
