For a green card, the medical examination is an essential step of the immigration process. A government-authorized doctor takes the exam. The immigration medical exam consists of several parts;

  • A review of your medical history and immunization records
  • A physical and mental evaluation
  • Drug and alcohol screening
  • Tests for various diseases and illnesses

Suppose you are in the United States, then it’s essential to arrange an appointment with a USCIS designated civil surgeon for your immigration medical examination.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has issued technical instructions for this examination. Doctors or civil physicians use these instructions to examine immigration applicants.

The doctors or civil physicians use these directions to examine immigration applicants, and then the results are sealed in an I-693 form.

The applicant can also receive a copy from the doctor or civil physician. The physician or doctor might refer your identification or classification to another health department or a physician if required to do so based on the CDC’s guidelines.

If USCIS determines that your I-693 is insufficient, the USCIS sends a letter to the applicant. According to this letter request, the applicant should submit additional evidence.

Even it may also ask that doctor faultless the medical examination results. Once you have submitted your application at the USCIS platform, it will decide on your adjustment of the status of your application. If there are no grounds for inadmissibility, the application is likely worthy of approval.
