Immigration Physicals Q & A

What is an immigration physical?

An immigration physical is an essential step in applying for a green card to become a permanent United States resident. This is a normal part of the immigration process that everyone must go through to ensure public safety.

The primary care physicians at Arundel Medical Group are authorized providers of immigration physicals. 

Why do I need an immigration physical?

The purpose of an immigration physical is to protect the health of the United States population. The team at Arundel Medical Group evaluates your health and compiles a medical examination report and vaccination record. You must provide these documents to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) when you apply for a green card.

Certain conditions may prevent you from acquiring a green card, including:

  • Drug abuse or addiction
  • Contagious diseases that pose a threat to the general population
  • Physical or mental disorders associated with harmful behavior

Failure to show proof of required vaccinations also makes you inadmissible to the United States.

What should I bring to my immigration physical?

You should come to your immigration physical prepared with the following items:

  • Vaccination records
  • Examination fee
  • Medical insurance card
  • Valid passport or other government-issued photo identification
  • Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record 

If you have a history of any medical condition that may make you inadmissible, such as syphilis, tuberculosis, or drug addiction, you should also bring a certificate from your doctor, proving that you were adequately treated.

What happens during an immigration physical?

First, your Arundel Medical Group physician reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam. They test you for contagious diseases, such as syphilis and tuberculosis. They also review your immunization record and administer any necessary vaccines.

After completing the exam, your Arundel Medical Group physician fills out your Form I-693 and returns it to you in a sealed envelope. It’s essential that you do not open this envelope. You must submit the report in a sealed envelope at your USCIS green card interview.
