What is a USCIS Medical Examination?

A USCIS medical examination, also known as a “medical exam for immigration,” is a mandatory requirement for individuals applying for immigration benefits or those looking to become a permanent resident (green card holder) in the United States. The purpose of this examination is to ensure applicants do not have a health condition or communicable disease  that could pose a public health risk to the U.S. population.

Once your immigration medical exam is performed by one of our certified doctors, the results are then relayed to USCIS through form i-693 and you are informed of any serious medical concerns revealed in the test. In some cases, you may be asked to complete a return visit if test results are inconclusive or further testing is mandated.

To schedule a USCIS Medical Exam, you may use our online appointment book or call our office at (201) 241-3769.

Our team of world-class medical providers are committed to your health and well-being.

    Questions & Answers
    Can I choose any doctor for the medical examination?
    No, the medical examination must be conducted by a USCIS-approved civil surgeon or panel physician. You must choose a healthcare provider from the approved list.
    What documents do I need for the examination?
    You typically need to bring a government-issued photo ID, any vaccination records you have (COVID Vaccinations are required), and any prior medical records.
    What vaccinations are required for the USCIS medical exam?
    The list of required Vaccinations often depends on your age group, country of birth, and your medical history. Typically required vaccines include Covid, influenza (during flu season). measles, mumps, rubella (MMR 2 doses), hepatitis B (3 doses), tdap (within 10 years), varicella/chicken pox.. The civil surgeon will determine if you need any vaccinations based on your medical history and records.

    Generally, the results are valid for two years from the date of the examination. Applicants must complete the immigration process within this timeframe.
    What happens if I have a medical condition or fail the medical examination?
    Having a medical condition or failing certain tests does not automatically disqualify you from immigration. It may require additional evaluation or treatment, and USCIS will provide guidance on the next steps.

    The immigration exam is a $500 fee which includes documentation, and all necessary blood/urine testing needed. Immigration examination is not covered by insurance.
