Understanding Immigration Physical Exam Requirements

The immigration physical exam is a mandatory requirement for all individuals seeking to remain in the United States on a permanent basis. This medical civil surgeon examination is designed to ensure that immigrants are in good health and do not pose a risk to public health in the U.S. 

The following are some key points regarding the requirements for an immigration physical exam:

  • The exam must be performed by a designated civil surgeon who has been authorized by USCIS.
  • The exam must be completed within one year prior to the date of submission for immigration processing.
  • All required vaccinations must be up-to-date and recorded on an I-693 vaccination record.
  • The cost of the exam is not covered by insurance and must be paid out-of-pocket.
  • In some cases, additional tests may be required, such as a chest X-ray or blood test.
  • The results of the exam are valid for only one year and must be submitted with the immigration application.

The requirements for an immigration physical exam may vary depending on the relevant visa or change of status. For example, individuals applying for a student visa may have different requirements compared to those applying for a family-based visa. Additionally, the medical examination may also vary based on the country of origin, as certain countries may have specific health concerns that require additional testing. 

Which Vaccinations Do Immigrants Need? 

As part of the immigration physical, applicants must show proof of vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases. The purpose of these vaccinations is to prevent the outbreak of illnesses that can otherwise be prevented.  

The required vaccinations may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Measles 
  • Mumps 
  • Rubella 
  • Polio 
  • Tetanus 
  • Diphtheria 
  • Influenza 
  • Hepatitis A and B 
  • Varicella 
  • Covid-19

Our civil surgeon at Brazos Urgent Care can review your vaccination history and administer any missing vaccines in accordance with the CDC's vaccination guidelines.
