Are you planning to apply for a visa or green card in the United States? If so, you may be required to take a USCIS medical exam. This exam is an important step in the immigration process, and it is important to understand what it involves.
What is the USCIS Medical Exam Form?
The USCIS Medical Exam Form, also known as Form I-693, is a required medical exam for individuals seeking to enter the United States as immigrants. This form is used to determine if an individual has any health conditions that would make them inadmissible to the United States under the health-related grounds of inadmissibility.
Form I-693 must be completed by a USCIS-designated civil surgeon. At Nao Medical, we have experienced civil surgeons who are authorized to conduct the exam and complete Form I-693.
Who Needs to Take the USCIS Medical Exam?
Most individuals seeking to enter the United States as immigrants are required to take the USCIS medical exam. This includes individuals applying for:
- Permanent residency (green card)
- Adjustment of status
- Refugee or asylee status
- Certain other types of visas
It is important to note that the medical exam must be completed no more than 60 days before the date of your visa or green card interview. Therefore, it is important to schedule your exam in a timely manner to ensure that your paperwork is up to date.
What to Expect During the Exam
The USCIS medical exam consists of a physical examination, as well as a review of your medical history and vaccination records. During the exam, the civil surgeon will:
- Take your medical history
- Perform a physical examination
- Check for communicable diseases
- Check your vaccination status and administer any necessary vaccinations
Most individuals will also be required to undergo a tuberculosis (TB) test, which involves a small injection under the skin.
