Immigration Medical Exam

What Is USCIS Immigration Medical Exam?

Navigating the path to a U.S. Green Card is an exciting endeavor, accompanied by a crucial step—the immigration medical exam, also known as the green card medical examination. This pivotal examination is exclusively conducted by a designated Civil Surgeon, a physician authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The immigration medical exam evaluates applicants' medical fitness and health, ensuring compliance with USCIS vaccination guidelines. The comprehensive process involves:

  • A thorough physical examination.
  • A detailed review of the applicant's medical history and immunization records.
  • Essential laboratory tests to screen for infectious diseases.

The green card medical exam outcomes play a definitive role in determining applicants' eligibility for permanent resident status in the United States. It's not just a medical formality—a crucial checkpoint in your journey toward achieving your permanent resident dreams in the U.S.
