My I-485 is pending and I was issued an RFE for my updated medicals. Does this mean my green card is about to be approved?


When the USCIS issues an RFE for medicals on a pending I-485 application, that may be an indication that the case is close to being approved. We tend to see this a lot as we approach the end of the fiscal year (i.e., September 30th).

That being said, this is not always the case. There are times when an RFE for medicals is issued and, for one reason or another, the case remains pending for a good while longer. In general, however, an RFE for medicals tends to be a good sign. (03.Aug.2022)
