USCIS Requests Form I-693 From Employment-Based Green Card Applicants

In an Instagram statement, USCIS emphasized that all employment-based green card applicants should immediately return form I-693 if they received a Request for Evidence (RFE).

UCIS has stretched the importance of returning a response as a way to process status adjustment faster.

In an effort to limit the potential for employment-based visa numbers to go unused, we continue to increase the pace of these adjudications by prioritizing employment-based adjustment of status applications,” USCIS stated. “Please respond as soon as possible."

Beginning Aug. 12 of 2021, USCIS had announced an extension on Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination, and Vaccination Record.

According to the USCIS website, a completed I-693 should include the following:

USCIS has cited COVID-19 as the main reason for the extension, saying

We are making this temporary change because COVID-19 has caused processing delays and affected applicants’ ability to complete the required immigration medical examination.

For applicants looking to adjust status to that of a lawful permanent resident, filling Forms I-693 and I-485 could save the need for a Request for Evidence (RFE) and avoid adjudication delays.

For faster processing, applicants should ensure accuracy and validity before submitting documents to USCIS.
