Print out and bring the foremost recent version of form I-693, Report of medical check-up and Vaccination Record to your medical examination appointment. Complete part one of form I-693, however, does not sign until the civil doctor instructs you to do so. The civil doctor will use form I-693 to document the results of your medical examination.
The selected civil surgeon will complete, sign, and seal form I-693 and any supporting documents in an envelope. You need to submit the sealed envelope to USCIS as directed within the form I-693 instructions.
VERY IMPORTANT: Never ever try to break the seal or open this envelope. USCIS will not accept the opened form I-693 or if the envelope is altered in any method.
