I submitted I-485 on Sep 15th. I completed medical on November 19th 2019, and my interview date is 23rd January, 2020. Question is, at the time of the interview, will my medical exam be valid or not? I have heard medical result is only valid for 60 days from civil surgeon signature date.
The I-693 form is valid for one year. Therefore, if the USCIS interviewing officer is attentive or professionally diligent she will send you a Notice to update your medical exam prior to the interview.
