What the Doctor Will Examine
The doctor will talk with you, review your medical and vaccination history, give you a physical examination, and order any required STD tests. One of the STD tests require a small amount of urine so be certain to be hydrated: this is NOT a drug test and is only required for those aged 18 through 24.
During the physical portion of the examination, the doctor will, at a minimum, look at your eyes, ears, nose and throat, extremities, heart, lungs, abdomen, lymph nodes, and skin.
Certain vaccinations and blood tests, dependent upon the patient’s age classification, are required along with the completed I-693. The doctor and staff will advise you as to which, if any, vaccinations or blood tests you may need. PicMed can help you complete all of the requirements for a low cost or you can have them completed elsewhere, although this may delay the completion of you I-693. The requirements by age are detailed in the table below:
Laboratory evidence of immunity is acceptable for measles, mumps, rubella (MMR); hepatitis A; hepatitis B; polio; and varicella if the applicant lacks acceptable documented history of vaccination for these diseases.
COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
A completed series of COVID-19 vaccination is required as part of the USCIS immigration physical. This requirement is applicable to all applicants aged 5 years of age and above. PicMed can provide the COVID vaccine as part of the physical at no direct cost to the patient.
Submitting the Results of Your Medical Examination
If you are applying for your green card from overseas, through a U.S. consulate or embassy, the authorized physician will either give you the medical examination results to hand-carry to the visa interview or will send the results directly to the U.S. embassy or consulate.
If you are adjusting status, the doctor will complete Form I-693 and give it to you in a sealed envelope. You must then submit the envelope to USCIS, at your USCIS interview. The envelope will not be accepted unless it remains sealed.
