What Happens at an Immigration Medical Exam
An immigration medical exam is an important step of immigration process and is required for every individual seeking a permanent resident (green card) status. The appointment is a routine part of the process to ensure public safety and remove the grounds for inadmissibility for intending immigrants. The exam must to be completed by a government- authorized doctor and consist of the following parts:
- A review of your medical history and immunization records
- A physical and mental evaluation
- Drug and alcohol screening
- Tests for various diseases and illnesses, including blood and urine tests to screen for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea and Tuberculosis
The immigration medical examination is not a complete physical examination. The purpose is to screen for certain medical conditions relevant to U.S. immigration law. The U.S. government doesn’t require the doctor to evaluate you for any conditions except those the U.S. Public Health Service specifies for U.S. immigration purposes. Likewise, the government doesn’t require the doctor to provide you with diagnosis or treatment even if he or she discovers other issues related to your health. This examination is not a substitute for a full physical examination, consultation, diagnosis, or treatment by your primary health care provider.
