Immigration Physical Exam Procedure
Immigration medical exams are not like regular physical exams or checkups, where you visit the doctor about health issues. Instead, it is a screening exam to determine whether or not it is safe to allow you into the United States. While you do not need to be in perfect health to pass this exam, you must not have any serious or communicable diseases, mental disorders, or drug problems that would make you inadmissible to the U.S. and ineligible for a visa or green card.
What to Expect During Your Exam?
First, we will check your passport or other identity document to verify that you are, in fact, you.
The doctor or a member of our staff will ask about your medical history. We will review your medical problems, hospitalizations and treatments you may have received in the past. We will ask about exposure to tuberculosis and other communicable diseases.
You will be asked specific questions about psychoactive drug and alcohol use, any history of harmful behavior, and any history of psychiatric illness.
The doctor will ask about symptoms that suggest cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, and neuropsychiatric disorders, and will ask about symptoms of diseases that would make you inadmissible.
You will then receive a physical examination, which will include examination of the following areas of the body:
- The eyes, ears, nose, and throat
- Bodily extremities
- Lymph nodes
- External genitalia (for those that have symptoms of certain sexually transmitted diseases).
A mental status examination will also be performed.
Samples of blood and urine for laboratory testing-as applicable- will also be obtained. Those whose blood test for tuberculosis come back positive will get a chest X-ray at our office at no additional cost.
Following your examination, and once we have your results back, the doctor will complete your immigration package, place it in a sealed which you will then give to the consulate or USCIS. Do not open this envelope.
If you have not received certain vaccines, the doctor can administer them (or at least the first dose) during this exam.
Conditions Which May Make You Inadmissible
As of 2018, these include: untreated gonorrhea, infectious leprosy (Hansen’s disease), infectious stage syphilis, and active tuberculosis.
Illnesses that affect you but which will not infect or injure others (heart disease, cancer, certain mental illnesses, etc.) will not prevent you from receiving a residency permit.
Please, let us know if you are pregnant or plan to be pregnant soon. Some of the vaccines required by USCIS are contraindicated in pregnant women.
How Much does Immigration Physical Exam Cost?
The cost of the US Immigration Exam is $350 per adult and $290 per child applicant.
The fee includes the examination and completion of the required documents. It includes physical exam, blood and urine tests, and a chest x-ray (chest x-ray is required for those who test positive for tuberculosis). The fee does not include immunizations/vaccinations that you may need.
Please note: This fee is not covered by medical insurance and is self-pay. Vaccinations/immunization may be covered by your medical insurance benefits. To verify coverage please contact your insurance provider before your visit.

Have you previously completed the immigration physical exam but the form I-693 expired?
Please, bring your old I-693 documents if you have had an immigration exam in the past. We may be able to use some information from your previous exam.
Do you have a complete vaccination/immunization record?
Don’t worry if you don’t have your immunization records. We can determine if you are immune to the diseases important to USCIS by checking the antibody level in your blood in the laboratory. This will be at no additional charge.
Do you have active health insurance?
The USCIS Immigration Medical Exam is not usually covered by health insurance plans. However, some health plans may cover vaccinations that you may need and we can work with you in this regard.
Are you in a hurry?
Generally, blood test is the most time-consuming task in the entire process. Some laboratory tests take at least 48 hours to complete. If you are pressed for time, we can discuss how to expedite your exam and have your package ready in a timely manner.
