Immigration Updates to Form I-693
Effective November 1, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has changed a requirement for obtaining a green card as it relates to the medical and vaccination examination.
Form I-693 is a requirement for all seeking an adjustment of status to that of a LPR (Legal Permanent Resident). However, per a policy update on US Customs and Immigration Services website, the I-693 form must be signed by a civil surgeon designated by the USCIS no later than 60 days before the filing of the underlying application. The form will also remain valid for a two-year-period from the date it was signed by the doctor.
Previously, by the time Immigration was ready to complete an application, the I-693 form was invalid and an updated medical report was required.
Remember, under Trump’s administration, deadlines and requirements are getting more and more strict, so make sure to calculate correctly all timelines.

Once again, the Trump administration is proposing new rules for immigrants applying for green cards if they have used public assistance in the past.
Now, the Trump administration is abandoning the court ruling and is looking to detain families until their case goes to court.
