An immigration exam is a medical exam and vaccination evaluation that you need if you’re applying for lawful permanent residence in the United States. Dulles Urgent Care Center has a civil surgeon on staff to perform these examinations thoroughly and according to the requirements of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
The exam includes a review of the current state of your health and your vaccination status. Your provider makes sure that you have all of the required vaccinations. They also ask you many questions about your health history.
When you come to Dulles Urgent Care Center for your immigration exam, there are a few things you’ll need to bring to make the process simple and quick. You must bring your filled out Form I-693, which is the Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record. Your provider completes the form and seals it in an envelope for you to submit. You must also bring:
You must also bring the full payment at the time of your examination. Dulles Urgent Care Center offers competitively low rates for immigration exams as insurance doesn’t cover them.
Your immigration exam involves several steps. Your provider asks questions about your medical history and your family’s medical history, including questions about past drug use and hospital stays.
Next, your provider performs a thorough physical examination. They check your vision, breathing, heart rate, and other signs of your health. If you’re an adult, you’ll also need a chest X-ray and a blood draw during the exam.
Finally, your immigration exam finishes with a mental examination. The physician tests your mood, judgment, comprehension, and behaviors. This ensures that you won’t pose a risk to yourself or others.
At the end of your examination, the physician completes your form and seals it securely in an envelope. You must file the paperwork yourself without opening the envelope for any reason.
