What You Need for Your Immigration Exams
When coming to your doctor's office for your immigration medical exams, you need to bring some paperwork with you. These documents include:
- Passport or Government-issued photo ID
- Vaccination records
- Medical insurance card
- Form I-693
You can fill out your part of Form I-693. However, you shouldn't sign it till your civil surgeon tells you to. You'll also need to bring money to pay for your immigration medical exams. The price varies depending on what tests and vaccinations your civil surgeon recommends. A translator may also help with communication.
What Happens During an Immigration Exam
Your immigration medical exam occurs in two visits.
During your first visit, your healthcare provider will review your vaccination records to determine what vaccines you may need. They can perform tests to determine if you already have immunity to specific conditions before giving you a vaccine if you desire. Your healthcare provider will also perform all the tests necessary for your green card application.
This visit must be with a USCIS approved healthcare provider. During your appointment, your civil surgeon will read out your results and complete your Form I-693 and other related paperwork. You'll get a copy of your documents and your civil surgeon will send a sealed copy to the USCIS to complete your application.
