Immigration Physicals

Designated Civil Surgeons appointed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, are authorized to conduct medical examinations and administer required immunizations for aliens seeking adjustment of status or Permanent Resident Status (Green Card).

A medical examination is a mandatory component of the application process for aliens applying for adjustment of status. The objective of this examination is to assess the health status of the applicant and determine whether any health conditions could impede a change in their immigration status. The examination results will be submitted to an Immigration officer and may be disclosed to health departments, as well as other public health or collaborative medical authorities.

Examination Requirements:

The following tests are required by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service, or USCIS (formerly the Immigration & Naturalization Service, or INS).

The physical examination is required for persons of all ages. The examination requirements are determined by your age and your immunization record.

An adult examination (15 years or older) typically consists of the following:

  1. A Physical Examination
  2. A blood test for tuberculosis and syphilis (RPR)
  3. Immunizations are dependent on age and medical history

A pediatric examination (children 14 years of age or younger) does not usually require blood testing and typically consists of the following:

  1. A physical examination
  2. A blood test for tuberculosis (two years old and older)
  3. A review and update of the pediatric immunizations
