I-485News USCIS Policy for MEDICAL EXAMS for I-485 Adjustment of Status

October 16, 20180

As per the new policy, which goes into effect on Nov. 1, 2018, applicants are required to submit a Form I-693 ( also known as MEDICALS for Adjustment of Status) that is signed by a civil surgeon no more than 60 days before filing the underlying application (I-485 Adjustment of Status) for an immigration benefit.

Further,  the medicals would remain valid for a two-year period following the date the civil surgeon signed it. As such, USCIS is retaining the current maximum two-year validity period of Form I-693, but calculating it in a different manner to both enhance operational efficiencies and reduce the number of requests to applicants for an updated Form I-693.
