Question: I have just been scheduled for my green card interview. How do I know if my medical examination report has expired and I need to bring a new one to the interview?

The Immigration Advisor - Samar: Almost all applicants for Adjustment of Status (Form I-485) must submit a Report of Medical Examination (Form I-693) at some point in the process. We are no longer required to submit the I-693 together with the I-485 application, although we still have the option to do so.

On November 1, 2018, USCIS changed the rules regarding how long the I-693 remains valid. The rules are now different depending on whether the I-693 was submitted before or after November 1, 2018.

Where the I-693 is submitted to USCIS after November 1, 2018, if a) the I-693 was signed by the doctor after the I-485 was filed or b) the I-693 was signed by the doctor 60 days or less prior to the I-485 being filed, then the I-693 will remain valid for 2 years from the date that the doctor signed the I-693.

So if the I-485 was filed before the I-693 was signed by the doctor or the I-485 was filed no more than 60 days after the doctor signed the I-693, you will only need to obtain a new I-693 if it has been more than 2 years since the doctor signed the I-693 and USCIS still has not approved your I-485 application.

If the I-485 was filed more than 60 days after the doctor signed the I-693, then the I-693 is no longer valid and you will have to obtain a new one.

The I-693 is valid for:

Two years from when the doctor signed the I-693

I-693 was signed by the doctor 60 days or less prior to the I-485 application being filed with USCIS

Two years from when the doctor signed the I-693

I-693 was signed by the doctor more than 60 days prior to the I-485 application being filed with USCIS

I-693 is not valid.

 

Where the I-693 was submitted to USCIS before November 1, 2018, the same rules above apply where a) the I-693 was signed by the doctor after the I-485 was filed or b) the I-693 was signed by the doctor 60 days or less prior to the I-485 being filed. In those cases, the I-693 will remain valid for 2 years from the date that the doctor signed the I-693.

However, where the I-693 was submitted to USCIS before November 1, 2018, if the I-485 was filed more than 60 days after the I-693 was signed by the doctor, the I-693 will remain valid for up to 1 year from when the I-693 was submitted as long as the I-693 was submitted to USCIS no more than 1 year from when the doctor signed the I-693.
