USCIS Extends Waiver of 60-Day Rule for Medical Examination Form I-693 USCIS Extends Waiver of 60-Day Rule for Medical Examination Form I-693 from September 30, 2022, to March 31, 2023. USCIS has announced that it is extending its temporary waiver of the requirement that a civil surgeon signs your Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, no more than 60 days before you file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. This temporary waiver has been in effect since Dec. 9, 2021, was set to expire September 30, 2022, but will now remain in effect until March 31, 2023.
Applicants are still encouraged to undergo the immigration medical examination close to the time you file your Form I-485, because your Form I-693 is only valid for 2 years from the date of the civil surgeon’s signature. After the 2-year time frame, you must submit a new Form I-693 if USCIS has not adjudicated your Form I-485.
