Immigration Exams in Middletown, NY

Immigration Services: USCIS Medical Exams

An Immigration physical exam is an essential part of the immigration process for any non-American who wishes to become a permanent resident, also known as a green card holder. Every member of the family must have an exam, even children.

Why choose Northern Medical Center?

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires an I-693 medical exam that can only be performed by USCIS-approved doctors, called civil surgeons. 

Northern Medical Center has an authorized civil surgeon on staff to give you and your family the compassionate care you deserve.

The aim of the medical exam is to ensure that someone who immigrates to the United States is healthy, that any physical and mental conditions are adequately addressed, and that all required vaccines have been given to maintain good health as long as they plan to live here. 

Once the exam is done, you will receive a sealed envelope containing the completed I-693 form. You must bring this to your USCIS office. Please do not open the envelope, or it will not be accepted by USCIS. 

What do I need to bring to the immigration exam?

When you come to Northern Medical Center for your green card exam, please bring the following with you:

  • Form I-693. Please fill out your portion before arriving for your exam. 
  • Vaccination records. Any missing vaccines must be administered before the I-693 form can be completed. 
  • Valid passport or government-issued photo ID
  • Additional passport photos (required for form I-693)
  • List of all medications you are currently taking
  • Tuberculosis certificate if previously treated
  • Report on learning difficulties and supervision needs, if relevant
  • Certificate of clearance if you’ve had syphilis

If you have a history of violence or harmful behavior, or if you’ve ever been admitted to a hospital for psychiatric or mental illness or alcohol or drug abuse, you must bring medical notes that detail your diagnosis, length of treatment, and prognosis.
