There are many criteria that need to be met by people who are entering the USA as immigrants. Besides the basic paperwork and assessments there is the Immigration Physical, which every immigrant will have to undergo to be finally passed as fit to remain in the USA. While not a complex examination it does require an expert – and a licensed one – to carry out the process, so you need to be able to get in touch with a reputed practitioner to have your physical carried out. 

For immigration physicals in Davie and Plantation, Florida, you can rely upon the licensed Civil Surgeons at UrgentMed to perform the examination for you, as they are among those that have been authorized by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services to carry out the relevant examinations. Let’s talk in more detail about what the test involves and what you should expect when undergoing the immigration physical.

What’s Involved in an Immigration Physical


The immigration physical is to determine the basic health of an immigrant who wishes to remain permanently as a resident in the US. It involves the following:

  • Basic Physical Examination and Mental Health Assessment.
  • Blood tests including where necessary testing for HIV and syphilis. Note that for the former, both pre and post-test counselling will be provided. 
  • Tuberculosis skin test, and a follow-up X-ray if infection is found up to a certain level.
  • Adults require proof of vaccination for, but not limited to, tetanus-diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox, all of which must have been within a prescribed time period.

That’s it, and after the test the doctor will fill in a form – this is known as I-693 – which is sealed in an envelope. The patient must not open the envelope but present it with all other immigration material to the INS for assessment. 

What Happens Next?

Once you’ve undergone your immigration physical and presented the results in the envelope to the relevant person, your case will be given to an immigration officer who will assess the case including your immigration physical results. The overall outcome and decision will be based around all relevant information, and each case is treated individually. You will learn of the result in due time, and your immigration physical results will be valid for one year following the date you underwent the examination.

For immigration physicals in Fort Lauderdale and Florida you’ll find UrgentMed to be more than helpful, as well as convenient, discreet and professional. They have all the experience necessary to carry out the tests correctly and with full compliance to the regulations and are happy to answer any questions you might have before the exam, and talk to you in depth about your past health situation. Make sure you take a valid form of identification and all your vaccination documents, as well as presenting your Alien Registration number if you have been issued one, as this will allow the immigration physical to be carried out properly.
