Immigration Examination Q & A

What is an immigration examination?

Completing and passing an immigration medical examination is one of the requirements toward receiving your permanent residency card, more commonly called a green card, to live in the United States.

The exam intends to ensure you don’t have any underlying diseases such as tuberculosis or syphilis that you can spread to those around you. You also are required to have more than a dozen vaccinations to get a green card.

What should I bring to my immigration examination?

You’ll want to come prepared for your immigration medical examination at Suburban Medical & Wellness Center. Make sure you bring a few essential documents, such as:

  • Your passport, visa, or travel document
  • Your vaccination/immunization records
  • Any previous chest X-rays
  • Copies of your medical history

Suburban Medical needs these papers to confirm your identity as well as to focus on your medical status.

What should I expect at my immigration examination?

The team at Suburban Medical & Wellness Center is great at making you feel relaxed and right at home. There’s no need to feel anxious. The doctor will ask about your medical history in order to gauge whether you have any internal health problems that could be contagious.

After looking at your paperwork and asking you a series of questions, the doctor will give you a physical examination to check on your essential organs. At the very least, he will examine your extremities, heart, lungs, and sensory organs.

You can also get needed vaccinations, such as:

  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Influenza
  • Influenza type b (Hib)
  • Measles
  • Meningococcal
  • Mumps
  • Pneumococcal
  • Pertussis
  • Polio
  • Rotavirus
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids
  • Varicella

After the exam, the doctor will record the results of the exam and either give them to you to carry to your visa interview, or he will mail them to the U.S. Embassy.

Can I fail my immigration examination?

In most cases, the only applicants who are denied their green card because of their immigration medical exam are those who have a contagious disease or those who have very debilitating health conditions that could be too expensive for them to maintain.

If you generally enjoy good health, a simple cold or flu won’t stop you from getting your green card.
