USCIS recently announced a change in its policy on the validity of the Medical Certification on the Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record (Form I-693). The Form I-693 is used to determine if an adjustment of status applicant is inadmissible under the health-based grounds of inadmissibility found at INA § 212(a)(1). The medical exam must be performed by a USCIS authorized civil surgeon and must be in accordance with the rules promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services.
