Consider this before acting :
1) any news till it is released by relevant authority is a speculation, certain organization who want to help people like us try to give heads up..with information they have in hand. Like IV or anyother

2) every action that is taken by authority will take time to implement.

Take appropriate action as required based on your situation...In MY opinion at this critical time period..avoid any drastic changes, like moving to New employer who has promised to sponser EB2 GC..when you already have in hand EB3 GC process completed at a stage.

check this news, I am not sure about authenticity of the site....

Are you really serious posting just any link from the internet? Maybe you are the owner or employee of the website looking for traffic. But if you are a high skilled employee with good education, are you serious? Will you trust any pajama news website or pajama lawyer website?

Smile Medicals done

Finished the medical tests today - second day - TB rosette readout. Waiting for the civil surgeon's office to complete and hand over the I-693 envelope.

Birth certificates and affidavits ready - dont know if we will need the affidavits though- everything is in English.

Never have used any attorney, and not using this time either.

Hi,

My situation may be different than yours. Both me and my spouse work for two different hospitals, and we had to be vaccinated and titered as a part of our employment terms. This vaccination records, I believe, is already in US Medical records. We had to provide our official records to the civil surgeon, and hence avoided the lengthy vaccination schedule, costs etc. Just had to go through physical, blood tests for syphilis and TB skin test. Further my expenses have been covered by my insurance, just had to pay the office visit copay. Please call a few civil surgeon's office to find out who accepts your insurance, if you have one. Many of these offices don't, and instead try to sell you expensive packages even if you dont need them.

If you do not have this advantage, I suggest you start your process sooner because vaccination schedule may take some time. I am taking IV's directives very seriously so that I have all the documents ready, and can be submitted on demand. Best of luck.

Quick question - how long is the sealed envelop valid for?

Assuming that Recapture does happen.

All those who had filed 485 in July 07 and are waiting for a VISA number

Do they need to go for bio-metrics and vaccination again

Can we do the medical test early? I thought admin said something else.

If we say yes, then somehow you will understand that something is happening next week.
If we say no, then you might interpret that something might be happening later.

You got to have some trust. We have shared what we could. Any more information is not relevant at this time. As advised in numerous online discussions, medical test should be done only after you are eligible to file for AOS, whenever that might be.

Sengs, Did you complete your I693/medicals based on IVs directive? If so, I am also going to do the same.

I also think that, as Admin said, You cannot start Medical test until your priority dates are current.

Admin, can you clarify please? It will help us beat the rush if the medical tests can be done any time.

I believe the physician signed form will be valid for a year. In Tampa, FL, I was told by the physician's ofc that its around two week process to complete the physical. It will cost around $400-$500 per person. All this is based on no medical records for immunization and not going through insurance.

Guys, why don't you read the I-693 instructions instead of asking questions or doubting others? Or do you need to be spoonfed by your attorneys?

I remember reading earlier that admin said doing medical test only after the dates are current. I could not find another post by Admin to suggest that we should start doing medical test. Maybe I missed that post. Was that in the newsletter? I don't receive IV newsletter
