United States Immigration Physicals
What is a United States immigration physical?
Anyone applying for a green card or permanent resident status in the United States is required to undergo an immigration physical. This physical ensures you’re medically cleared to move forward with the immigration process and are in compliance with public safety regulations.
Texas Primary Care Center provides in-office physicals that meet the requirements of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The providers are approved by USCIS.
What can I expect during my United States immigration physical?
When you arrive for your immigration physical, be sure to bring your medical records and the appropriate forms, including Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination, and Vaccination Record. You should also schedule your physical in advance to ensure you meet the required deadlines of the USCIS.
During your appointment, your Texas Primary Care Center provider reviews your medical history and your vaccination records and performs a comprehensive physical. If you have existing health issues, as well as to test for drug and alcohol use, your provider requests additional health screenings, like blood work and urine testing.
As part of the immigration physical requirements, you can also expect to undergo a mental health evaluation.
If you meet the criteria of USCIS, the Texas Primary Care Center staff completes the necessary forms and provides them to you in a sealed envelope or forwards them to the proper authorities.
What happens if I fail the United States immigration physical?
There are several medical issues that can disqualify you from completing the immigration process. The Texas Primary Care Center providers may not clear you medically if you have certain communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis or syphilis, that put public health at risk.
Other factors that influence your immigration physical include:
- Drug use
- Alcohol addiction
- Mental disorders with related harmful behaviors
You also need to be up to date on all necessary vaccinations, such as those that protect against diseases like hepatitis, measles, and polio. If the vaccine requires a series of shots, you must have at least the first in the series at the time of your physical.
If you’re planning to apply for a green card or citizenship in the United States, schedule a United States immigration physical at Texas Primary Care Center as soon as possible by calling the office or by booking an appointment online now.
