USCIS Removes 60-Day rule signature Rule for Form I-693
On Dec. 9, 2021, USCIS issued a temporary waiver extending the validity of a civil surgeon’ signature on Form I-693 beyond 60 days before filing Form I-485. USCIS has updated its policy for the Form I-693 civil surgeon requirement no longer requiring the Form to be signed within 60 days of filing Form I-485. USCIS will now accept Form I-693s for up to 2 years after the civil surgeon has signed the form.
This change is expected to improve USCIS efficiency and reduce requests for evidence.
