COVID-19 Vaccinations Required

USICS and Department of State are now requiring a full COVID vaccination course, as part of the medical screening for new applications including all of those who have yet to have their immigrant visa appointments. Whether you are applying for a permanent residence (green card) within the U.S. or consular processing, full course of COVID vaccinations are now required. Separately, for those that completed the medical examination within the U.S. your medical exam report will now be valid for up to four years, due to USCIS’s long delays in processing permanent resident applications. This applies as long as your medical exam was completed withing sixty days prior to your application for permanent residence.
