Immigration Exams Q & A

What is an immigration exam?

An immigration exam is an integral part of your application for citizenship.

You undergo a general physical exam that includes a review of your blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, and general physical appearance. Dr. Schub listens to your heart rate, assesses your breathing, and also looks at your eyes, ears, nose, abdomen, lymph nodes, skin, throat, and external genitalia.

During the exam, Dr. Schub also reviews your vaccination history, orders an X-ray, and reviews blood tests. The immigration exam includes screening for tuberculosis, syphilis, and gonorrhea.

Why do I need to see a certified physician for an immigration exam?

US Citizenship and Immigration Services certifies specific providers to do immigration exams. If you go to a noncertified provider, USCIS will not accept the results of your exam.

Dr. Schub is certified to fill out all the results of the exam on the designated forms, including Form I-693.

What should I bring to an immigration physical exam?

You should bring your I-693 form with part 1 filled out, but do not sign part 2 until directed to do so by the Sunshine State Medical Inc. staff.

You’ll also need a valid government-issued photo ID like a passport or driver’s license. Sunshine State Medical Inc. also requires a copy of your immunization records in English and payment.

What vaccinations do I need to show proof of?

If you lack any of the following vaccinations, Dr. Schub can administer them:

  • Mumps
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Influenza
  • Measles
  • Pneumococcal
  • Meningococcal
  • Pertussis
  • Rotavirus
  • Rubella
  • Polio
  • Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids
  • Varicella

Can I fail the immigration physical exam?

Passing your exam is possible even if you have a cold or irregular heartbeat. Certain medical conditions prevent you from being admitted into the United States on a green card. These include:

  • A physical or mental disorder or history of behavior that poses a threat to the safety of yourself or others
  • Addiction to or abuse of drugs
  • A communicable disease like active tuberculosis and infectious leprosy 

How do I submit proof of a passed physical exam?

Dr. Schub gives you the completed Form I-693 in a sealed envelope, which you then submit to USCIS at your green card interview. Make sure you do not open the envelope; opening it nullifies your exam’s findings.
