USCIS Waiving 60-day Rule for Medical Exam Filing

USCIS announced on December 9th that they are temporarily waiving the requirement that the I-693 Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record be filed within 60 days of being signed by a Civil Surgeon. The policy is effective immediately and is in effect until September 30th, 2022. The waiver applies to all pending cases, regardless of when the application was submitted or when the Form I-693 was signed. Previously, in August, USCIS extended the validity of the I-693 Medical Exam from two years to four years. These actions on the part of USCIS show that they are making efforts to overcome some of the challenges brought on by the pandemic.
