What is Immigration Medical Exam?
This is a medical examination you have to undergo when you apply for a U.S. green card (lawful permanent resident status). The purpose behind the examination is to ensure that you do not have health-related grounds that would deem you in admissible to the United States. Only civil surgeons, which are doctors specifically designated by the U.S government must perform the required medical examination. You cannot simply undergo the medical examination with your regular doctor.
What should you bring for the medical examination?
The civil surgeon will look over your vaccination records and let you know if you will need any vaccinations in order to complete your immigration medical exam. If you have received all required vaccinations and have all necessary records, you will not need to receive any additional vaccinations. If you have received vaccinations in the past but do not have your vaccination records, you have the option of having blood titers drawn to prove your immunity. If you have had a full series of vaccinations in the past, the blood titers will prove that you are immune to the disease and do not require the vaccinations. However, if a blood titer comes back as not immune, the vaccination will then require.
What will the doctor examine and administer?
The doctor will conduct a standard physical during which he looks at your eyes, ears, nose and throat, extremities, abdomen, lymph nodes, skin, and external genitalia. They will also listen to your heart and your breathing.
Tuberculosis (TB) Screening
All applicants two years of age or older are required to have a test for tuberculosis. This is tested via blood test. Children younger than age two are required to have TB test only if there is evidence of contact with a person known to have TB or if there is other reason to suspect TB. If evidence of TB infection is found, a chest X-ray is required. Pregnant women must still undergo the X-ray if the TB test is found to be positive.
Syphilis Blood Test
All applicants age 15 and older are required to be tested for syphilis by USCIS, as well as applicants 14 and under who have symptoms of syphilis or a history of syphilis. The syphilis screening is a blood draw to determine if the applicant has syphilis. If syphilis is detected, the applicant will need to be treated before the I-693 form can be completed.
