I have not been keeping close track lately but it looks up-to-date to me. The magic clause is Part V Note 10:
10. A foreign national, who has legally resided in the State for five years in a row and has not left the State for over 3 months during any particular trip out of the country, is exempted from submitting a health certificate and no criminal records of the original country.
If this applies to you, the process should be enormously simplified. But as Icon always says: go talk to an agent at your local NIA!
