WHAT IS AN IMMIGRATION PHYSICAL

An Immigration Physical is a medical examination to verify good health and admissibility to the U.S. The exam is to identify possible medical conditions that require follow-up medical care after emigration to the U.S. or Adjustment of Status to permanent residence.

WHAT DOES AN IMMIGRATION PHYSICAL ENTAIL?

All Immigration medical exams include:

  1. Physical Examination: Applicants are required to have a physical examination (including complete disrobing), and an evaluation of mental status.
  2. Tuberculin (TB) skin test: All applicants two years of age and older are required to have a Tuberculin skin test (TST)
  3. Serologic (blood) test: All applicants 15 years of age and older are required to have serologic (blood) tests for HIV and for syphilis. Applicants under age 15 can be tested for HIV or syphilis if there is reason to suspect the possibility of infection. Civil Surgeons and Panel Physicians are required to provide pre-test counseling to all applicants who take the HIV test. If you are found to have HIV infection, the Civil Surgeon must provide you with post-test counseling
  4. Vaccinations: Applicants need to show that they are current with all vaccinations recommended by the U.S. public health officials

COMPLETING OF IMMIGRATION PHYSICAL MEDICAL FORMS

Print out and bring the most recent version of Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, to your medical exam appointment: Fill out Part 1 of Form I-693 but do not sign until the civil surgeon instructs you to do so.

The designated civil surgeon will complete, sign and seal Form I-693 and any supporting documents in an envelope. You must submit the sealed envelope to USCIS as directed in the Form I-693 instructions.

IMPORTANT: Do not break the seal or open this envelope.  USCIS will not accept Form I-693 if it is not in a sealed envelope or if the envelope is altered in any way.
