USCIS Updates its Policy on Required Medical Documents for Certain Immigration Benefits
As a result of the change effective November 1, applicants required to attend an appointment with a designated U.S. civil surgeon to obtain this record will be far less likely to have to pay additional fees—and experience the inconvenience of attending an additional appointment—associated with updating their medical reports due to government delays in processing their underlying immigration benefit applications.
In addition, the new policy states that applicants must obtain this record no more than 60 days prior to submitting their related application for the related immigration benefit to the USCIS.
