Crossing the Border: New Medical Exam 60 Day Rule Suspension
Due to processing delays and related impacts from COVID-19, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is temporarily waiving a requirement that the Form I-693 (Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record) must have been signed by the civil surgeon (physician) performing the examination no more than 60 days before an applicant applies for an immigration benefit. This includes the Form I-485 application to register permanent residence or adjust status, which requires submission of the Form I-693 before the application can be approved.
