What to Bring to the Medical Examination

In preparation for the medical examination, you should gather the following:

  • Documentation of any vaccinations or blood tests you have already received or completed.
  • A legal picture ID. (passport, state driver’s license, residency card)
  • If you’ve had a previous positive test for tuberculosis (TB), bring all documentation pertaining to the treatment of the TB infection or documentation that no active infection was detected.
  • If you have any history of harmful or violent behavior, treated or hospitalized for mental illness, or had a history of drug or alcohol abuse, bring medical documentation regarding the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.
  • If you are being treated for a chronic medical condition or taking medication on a regular basis, be ready to explain your condition(s) and give the names of the You might want to prepare a list.
  • If you’re adjusting status in the United States, a copy of Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, with the top part filled in by the patient.

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. Children under the age of 15 will normally not be required to complete the STD tests.

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:

  • Flu vaccination only required from October 1st to March 31st of any year.

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.

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 green card interview. The envelope will not be accepted unless it remains sealed.
