Easy Access to Immigration Medical Exams

Becoming a citizen through the naturalization process is an exciting step in your journey to legally joining the American family. Through the immigration process, set forth by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), there are several steps you must take along the journey to achieving citizenship. You will be taking a civics test, making an oath to the United States, and undergoing a medical exam and vaccination before completing the process. All of these steps are necessary in order to complete your application process. However, you can achieve some of these goals on your own in a timely manner and move forward to the naturalization ceremony.

One step you can take now is the required immigration medical exam and vaccination. These exams must be conducted by an approved doctor called a “civil surgeon.”

What is an Immigration Medical Exam?

An immigration medical exam is a process that begins with the proper form and authorized civil surgeon. Your authorized physician will fill out and complete the U.S. Form I-693, which is part of the requirement for naturalization. The I-693 form is titled, “Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record.” This form includes a part for you to fill out with your identifying information, and the final part of the form is for the physician to fill out.

One section of the I-693 medical immigration form is for the findings of your general health. The physician will determine whether you are healthy and well enough to work, attend school, or take care of yourself. There are some conditions that are classified as Class A and Class B that could be considered inadmissible for naturalization. It’s critical to seek a reputable facility that will do a proper exam and fill out the paperwork appropriately, so you don’t get denied.

They will assess your overall physical and mental well-being. As long as there are no obvious maladies, they will proceed to the next portion of the test.

Next, you will be tested for certain communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, syphilis, and gonorrhea. Finally, during the last part of your testing, the physician will review your current vaccinations and make sure you are up to date. If you need any vaccinations, they will provide you with the necessary doses.
