USCIS Temporarily Waiving 60 Day Rule for Medical Report Signatures

USCIS has announced that they will temporarily waive the 60 days requirement for civil surgeons signing the Form I-693 medical examination and vaccination record. When applying for a green card, you must demonstrate that you are not inadmissible based on health-related grounds. To prove that, you have to submit a completed medical examination form to USCIS. For more information on the medical report, please click here.

Previously, USCIS required all medical reports to be signed no more than 60 days before submitting the report to USCIS for immigration applications. USCIS has waived this requirement starting from December 9, 2021 to September 30, 2022.

This temporary waiver will help applicants who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and related processing delays, which have sometimes caused delays in completing the immigration medical examination. Temporarily allowing applicants to submit their underlying application for an immigration benefit with a completed Form I-693, even if the civil surgeon signed more than 60 days prior, will allow individuals to complete the application process without the need to undergo another immigration medical examination if Form I-693 is otherwise valid.
