Immigration Exams Q & A

What are immigration exams?

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) requires immigration exams for all people seeking to register as a permanent resident or adjust status, also known as applying for your green card. 

Clinica San Miguel is a full-service family medicine practice that includes physicians designated by the USCIS to perform immigration exams. 

The purpose of the immigration exam is to make sure the person seeking a green card doesn’t have a health condition that would make them inadmissible to the US, such as an infectious disease that may be harmful to the public. 

How do I prepare for immigration exams?

The Clinica San Miguel team provides specific instructions on what you need to do to prepare for your immigration exam. In general, you need to bring a valid government-issued identification (passport or driver’s license), vaccination records, and your completed USCIS health form. 

The team may also suggest you bring a friend or family member to the appointment who can provide support, explain treatments or recommendations, or serve as a translator.  

What happens during immigration exams?

Immigration exams at Clinica San Miguel aren’t like physical exams. The purpose of the exam is to assess your health and health history to make sure you don’t have any health issues that may be harmful to the public. 

Your provider at Clinica San Miguel explains what you can expect at the start of the exam. Tests are administered for a number of diseases and conditions, such as:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea and syphilis
  • Leprosy
  • Active tuberculosis
  • Other infectious diseases that may require quarantine

The team performs a physical exam and checks your vaccination records. They also update your vaccines as needed. 

Clinica San Miguel may perform additional testing, such as bloodwork or an X-ray, and provide any necessary treatment. 

Once you complete all of the required medical tests, your provider completes your immigration medical exam form and places it in a sealed envelope for you to include with your immigration application.

They also provide you with a copy of the form for your own records.
