I-693 Immigration Medical Examination
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires a medical examination as part of the entry and/or residency application process.
The medical exam requirements are determined by the USCIS guidelines. The components of each medical examination vary based on the age of the applicant and whether the applicant can provide written immunization records.

An immigration medical examination typically includes:
A complete medical examination by a civil surgeon, an approved and official provider of the USCIS Medical Exam.
A) tuberculin (TB) skin test and interpretation.
The patient must return to the clinic 2 days (48-72 hours)
after the skin test is applied for interpretation.
A skin test is considered "positive" if there is a reaction of 5mm or more. Anyone with a "positive" skin test must have a chest x-ray. If the applicant has a history of a positive TB skin test or has had a BCG vaccine, our physicians and medical assistants will discuss the governmental requirements and steps to be taken with you.
B) A Quantiferon TB Gold blood test. Results are typically available in 48-72 hours. If the tests come back reactive/positive, a chest x-ray is required.
A blood test for syphilis.
Immunizations such as:
A. MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and
B. Tetanus Diptheria and Pertussis (Tdap)
Please note that the testing and immunizations needed will vary from the list above for persons younger than 15 or older than 55 years of age.
An appointment is required for all immigration medical examinations.
The testing listed above will take approximately 1-2 hours. Please keep in mind that you will need to return to our facility two days (48-72 hours) after your initial visit to have your skin test read.
