Legal immigrants have one less hurdle to getting a U.S. green card — at least for now

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services updated a key requirement to obtain permanent residence or a green card in the United States effective D

ec. 9. The agency issued a policy alert on Thursday temporarily waiving a hurdle in the obligatory — and sometimes feared — medical and vaccination examination for immigration purposes, which makes sure there are no health issues that would deem the applicant inadmissible to the United States. The medical examination is a key requirement for all legal immigrants filling for adjustment of status to that of a lawful permanent resident. The results are submitted to USCIS through Form I-693.
