U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued new guidance on the validity of Form I-693, Report of Immigration Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. For all forms that were properly completed and signed by a civil surgeon on or after November 1, 2023, there is no expiration date and they may be used indefinitely to demonstrate an applicant is admissible on health-related grounds. However, USCIS officers do retain the discretion to request more evidence or a new or updated Form I-693 if they have reason to believe the submitted Form I-693 is inaccurate or that an applicant’s medical condition has changed.

If an applicant’s immigration medical examination was completed before November 1, 2023, the two-year validity period still applies.
