U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced the removal of the 60-Day Rule for signatures on Form I-693 Report of Immigration Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. The requirement that the medical reports be signed by the civil surgeon no more than 60 days before filing the Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status will no longer be applicable.

This new policy update will allow USCIS to adjudicate cases which had been marked as invalid due to a signed Form I-693 which was signed more than 60 days before filing the I-485. USCIS will now be able to accept these medical reports for up to 2 years after the date a civil surgeon signs the form instead of issuing Requests for Evidence (RFEs).

For any questions regarding the removal of the 60-Day Rule requirement for signatures on the Form I-693 Report of Immigration Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, please contact your trusted Chugh, LLP immigration professional.
