An immigration examination is a medical screening for certain conditions specified by the US Public Health Service. The examination includes a physical exam, medical history, chest X-ray, and blood tests.
Children under 15 years of age are required to undergo a general physical exam and immunizations, but they usually do not need blood tests or chest X-rays.
When you apply for a green card in the United States, you usually need an immigration examination performed by an authorized physician. The doctors at Patel, Pulliam, and Hubli Medical are authorized by the USCIS to provide this exam. Medical conditions that require screening and documentation include:
When you arrive for your immigration exam, it’s essential that you bring the following items with you:
Children 14 years of age or under need valid identification that shows their name, date and place of birth, and parent’s full name, such as an affidavit or a birth certificate (with English translation, if applicable).
During the physical exam, your authorized physician examines your nose and throat, eyes and ears, heart and lungs, abdomen and lymph nodes, skin, external genitalia, and extremities.
They also perform blood work, tuberculosis testing, and chest X-rays. The tuberculosis test requires a follow-up visit 2-3 days after your initial exam to have the results read. All aspects of the immigration examination are conveniently performed on-site.
