USCIS is removing the requirement that civil surgeons sign Form I-693, Report of Immigration Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, no more than 60 days before an individual applies for an underlying immigration benefit. This policy update will allow USCIS to accept Forms I-693 for adjudicative purposes for up to 2 years after the date the civil surgeon signed the form. Read the policy update here.
