Immigrants applying to change or adjust their status in the United States must see a civil surgeon.  The civil surgeon is a physician designated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to evaluate and perform medical evaluation of immigrants wishing to change their status.  The civil surgeon must ensure that applicant does not have any inadmissible conditions, such as untreated syphilis or gonorrhea, tuberculosis or any current or past history of physical or mental disorder with associated harmful behavior.   

The applicant will undergo a comprehensive physical examination and laboratory testing (blood work and urine) to screen for any infectious or communicable diseases.  Currently, USCIS requires testing for gonorrhea and syphilis for applicants age 15 y.o. and older.  Applicants 2 y.o. and older are required to get a Quantiferon blood test to screen for tuberculosis.  If there are any abnormalities in your laboratory results or chest x-ray (if required) the civil surgeon will advise you as to any necessary treatments or referrals.

Applicants 18 y.o. and younger must be current with their vaccination schedule and show proof of vaccination.  For applicants older than 18 y.o. there are a few required vaccines that they can choose to receive at the time of their examination, or from their personal physician or the Department of Health.  However, it is important that applicants see the civil surgeon first and not try to complete the vaccination requirements on their own.  Applicants who were vaccinated in the past but without any proof, can have additional blood work done to see if they are immune to common diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox etc. 

There are many things you can do to prepare for your immigration medical examination.  For starters, you must bring an unexpired government I.D. with you to the visit (i.e. Passport, Work Authorization Card, Driver License etc.) and any medical or vaccination records that you may have.   No need to worry about the application Form I-693.  We have all the forms in our office, and a complete and sealed Form I-693 will be given to you at the end of your examination.
