What are immigration physicals?

Immigration physicals are required by the USCIS for immigrants applying for a green card, also called adjustment of status. The USCIS only allows designated doctors (civil surgeons) to perform these exams and complete the required paperwork.

The board-certified internal medicine physicians at Alpha Medical Clinic have a combined experience of 50 years and are top-rated civil surgeons. They pay close attention to the requirements on the USCIS medical form (I-693), which is always changing, so you don’t have to repeat your exam.

If you or someone you love is in need of an immigration physical, the team at Alpha Medical Clinic can get you in right away.

When are immigration physicals scheduled?

You should schedule your immigration physical when you start the application process for your green card. The USCIS highly recommends you submit your I-693 Report of Medical Examination and Medical Record form with your Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status (I-485) to save you time in the application process.

Your immigration medical exam form is valid for two years from the date of the doctor’s signature. 

What do I bring to an immigration physical?

The team at Alpha Medical Clinic explains what you need to bring to your immigration physical at the time you make your appointment. They may request you fill out the online immigration physical form so they have some of the data they need before your appointment.

You should also bring a government issued identification along with your vaccination records and any medical records outlining health conditions you have. 

What happens during immigration physicals?

The team at Alpha Medical Clinic conducts a thorough evaluation during your immigration physical. They review your vaccination and medical records and ask about your health history. 

They conduct a physical exam, perform a tuberculosis (TB) test, and take blood and urine samples to test for contagious diseases like syphilis and gonorrhea.

Your provider updates your vaccinations, completes the required form, and puts it in an envelope that they seal and sign. This envelope goes with your immigration application. The team also provides you with a copy of the form for your personal records.
