Immigration Physicals Q & A

What are immigration physicals?

An immigration physical is a comprehensive physical examination required as part of the application process to receive a visa or citizenship in the United States. 

Completing this step of the application process ensures you’re healthy and have the vaccinations needed to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. 

Prima Medicine doctors are experienced in adult medical care and authorized by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to complete immigration physicals. They are rated as Top Doctors by Washingtonian Magazine and highly rated by patients.

What should I bring with me to immigration physicals?

To prepare for an immigration physical, make a list of what to bring with you to your appointment, including:

  • Form I-693 (Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record)
  • A passport, driver’s license, or other government-issued photo identification
  • Vaccination records
  • Medical insurance card (if you have one)
  • A form of payment

What should I expect during my physical?

When you arrive at Prima Medicine, friendly staff members greet you. They ask questions about your medical history, symptoms you might have, past diagnoses, prior vaccinations, and medications if you take them.

Your provider completes a physical examination to evaluate your overall health and wellness. They test for communicable diseases, such as syphilis, gonorrhea, and tuberculosis. 

Prima Medicine staff complete laboratory tests right in the office for added convenience and no delays for you. Some laboratory tests may incur additional costs. 

If you require immunizations, your provider can administer them during your appointment. They prepare all the necessary documents for your green card or US citizenship application.

What happens after an immigration physical?

After an immigration physical, your provider completes Form I-693 and seals it in an envelope, which you can submit with your application. Don’t open or alter it in any way. You can keep a copy of the completed form for your personal records.
