Immigration Exams Q&A

What is an immigration exam?

If you’re applying for a green card or permanent resident status in the United States, you must undergo an immigration exam. This physical exam ensures you’re healthy and medically clears you to move forward with the immigration process providing you are in compliance with the requisite public safety regulations.

Steven and the Harmony Clinic (Clinica Armonia) team provide in-office physicals that adhere to requirements set by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). 

What can I expect during my immigration exam?

When you arrive at Harmony Clinic (Clinica Armonia) for your immigration exam, bring your medical records and the appropriate forms, including Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. You should also schedule your physical in advance to ensure you meet the deadlines set by the USCIS.

Steven reviews your medical history and vaccination records during your appointment and performs a comprehensive physical. If you have existing health issues, he may request additional health screenings, like blood work and urine testing.

You can also expect a mental health evaluation as part of your immigration exam.

If you meet the criteria of USCIS, Steven completes the corresponding forms and gives them to you in a sealed envelope or sends them to the proper authorities.

What happens if I fail my immigration exam?

Several medical issues can cause you to fail an immigration exam. Steven may not clear you if you have certain communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis or syphilis, that endanger public health.

Other factors that can influence your immigration physical include:

  • Substance use
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Certain mental disorders

You also need to be up to date on all necessary vaccinations, such as those that protect against diseases like polio, hepatitis, and measles. If the vaccine is part of a series of shots, you must have at least the first in the series at the time of your physical.
