USCIS Makes Changes to Form I-693 Report of Immigration Medical Examination

Posted by Donald GrossJul 08, 20240 Comments

Based on advance in public health electronic notification with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), US Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that any Form I-693, Report of Immigration Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, that was properly completed and signed by a civil surgeon on or after November 1, 2023, does not expire.

  • Form I-693 completed after November 1, 2023 remains valid indefinitely as evidence of health-related admissibility.
  • USCIS officers retain discretion to request new or updated Form I-693 if they suspect changes in the applicant's medical condition or that the Form I-693 submitted does not accurately reflect the applicant's medical condition and the applicant may be inadmissible on health-related grounds.
  • Previous policy still applies to forms completed before November 1, 2023, with a validity period of two years from the date of the civil surgeon's signature, except for Forms I-693 filed by Operation Allies Welcome parolees, which remain valid for three years.
