USCIS Temporarily Extending Validity Period of Form I-693

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is temporarily extending the validity period for Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, from two years to now four years due to COVID-19-related delays in processing.

USCIS may consider a completed Form I-693 as valid if:

  • The civil surgeon’s signature is dated no more than 60 days before the applicant filed Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status;

  • No more than four years have passed since the date of the civil surgeon’s signature; and

  • A decision on the applicant’s Form I-485 is issued on or before Sept. 30, 2021.
