The Immigration Physical is done in 2 parts. At your initial appointment, Dr Velez will review your medical history, vaccination records, perform a physical exam, and order any necessary lab testing. Once the results of any testing is received, we will schedule a final visit to receive a copy of your paperwork and you will receive a sealed official report for submission.

The required labs include Tuberculosis screen for anyone 2 yrs old and older, Syphilis screen for ages 15 yrs old and older, Gonorrhea urine test for ages 15 yrs old and older.

If you do not have documentation of your vaccines, we can order lab testing (titers) to check for immunity for some of the required vaccines. It may be recommended to get certain vaccines if there is no documentation of administration in past.

We typically carry Tdap and Influenza vaccine in our office (based on availability). For all other vaccines we refer to a local pharmacy such as Walgreens or the Health Department for missing vaccinations. For vaccines in series, you must have at least the first vaccine of the series in order to finalize your paperwork.

You may use your insurance for the lab work ordered. You will be provided with a lab order and will need to go to the lab or phlebotomist to have it drawn. You will need to check with your insurance about your benefits. We have no control over what the insurance will cover or how much you will be charged for the labs in this case. Our direct pricing is often much more cost effective than if your insurance does not cover the particular testing.

We still encourage you to undergo the immigration medical examination close to the time you file your Form I-485, because your Form I-693 is only valid for 2 years from the date of the civil surgeon’s signature.
