Immigration Medical Exam

The purpose of the green card medical exam is to ensure that the relative seeking a green card has no health condition that could make them ineligible to receive a green card.

All applicants are required to show they have the proper vaccinations against diseases such as mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus, hepatitis A and B, meningitis, and the flu. If you are not sure you have been vaccinated against these diseases, your blood can be tested to check for immunity.

The exam includes a head-to-toe physical examination, a skin test or chest X-ray for tuberculosis, and a blood test for syphilis. You will be asked a series of questions to determine your mental health. You should also be prepared to discuss your medical history and current conditions, as well as any medicines you are taking.

You will want to bring your vaccination records, a copy of your medical history if you have it, a government-issued photo ID (such as your passport or driver’s license), and your health insurance card.

Applicants also need to bring Form I-693, which is called the Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. This is where Dr. George Chidi, MD and our team will record your exam results.

You will receive your Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, in a sealed envelope. Do not open the envelope; submit the medical exam with your application.

Make sure you get a copy of the completed form to keep for yourself before the envelope is sealed. If the envelope has been opened or tampered with, USCIS will not accept the form.
