FAQ About Immigration Physicals

What is an Immigration physical?

An immigration physical is a specific type of physical that is needed for immigration purposes. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service requires that people who want to become permanent residents (green card holders) or citizens of the United States complete an immigration physical.

What happens at an immigration physical? What do you test?

Immigration physicals are a comprehensive type of physical that screens both physical and mental health. The physical portion of an immigration physical includes examining a person’s body, including their eyes, ears, nose, throat, extremities, lymph nodes, heart, lungs, abdomen, and skin. For those 15 years of age or older, it also includes a chest X-ray and a blood test. The mental portion of an immigration physical includes a mental status exam that tests various aspects of a person’s mental health, such as their comprehension, mood, and behavior. After your immigration physical, a member of our team will fill out all the necessary paperwork needed to show the results of your physical.

Do I need to bring anything to my immigration physical?

Please bring Form I-693 to your immigration physical. This form is required by the government to complete your immigration physical. Additionally, please bring a valid government issued ID and your immunization records. If your immunization records are not in English, please also bring a full English translation of your records.

Are your immigration physicals official/legal/approved?

Yes. We are certified by the Department of State to administer immigration physicals.

I’m not sure if I have all the necessary vaccinations. What should I do?

At your immigration physical, one of our team members will review your vaccination history. If you need additional vaccinations, we do offer vaccinations at our clinic and can administer any needed vaccinations.

What is the purpose of an immigration physical?

Immigration physical results are needed by those who want to become US permanent residents or US citizens. From a government perspective, immigration physicals are used to protect the health of the United States population. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service looks at the results of an immigration physical to check for medical grounds of inadmissibility. Some things an immigration physical screens for include proof of required vaccinations, any communicable disease of public health significance, drug abuse, and physical or mental disorders associated with harmful behavior.

Do I give my immigration physical results to my consulate or the USCIS or do you?

In most cases, individual persons give their immigration physical results to their consulate or the USCIS. However, in certain oversea visa cases, your doctor will send the results for you. If you will be delivering the results of your physical, one of our team members will give you the results in a sealed envelope. Do not open this envelope before giving it to your consulate or the USCIS.
