What is the Immigration Physical Exam?

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires all aliens who are applying for green cards and citizenship to complete the I-693, the Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. The purpose of the medical examination is to evaluate the applicant’s health status and to determine if any conditions exist that might prevent a change in status. This examination can only be conducted by a Designated Civil Surgeon like Dr. Petua Okolo. She will complete and seal the I-693 form so that you can send the I-693 form back to the USCIS.


This exam requires applicants to be free of certain infectious diseases, including tuberculosis and syphilis. The HIV test is no longer mandatory. If Dr. Petua Okolo finds that you have an infectious condition that would prevent you from passing the physical examination, she can treat you or recommend a treatment plan necessary to allow you to proceed with the next step in the immigration process.
