Changes to Immigration Physicals in 2022

One of the most important steps in becoming a United States Citizen is finding a health care provider authorized to administer a physical examination for United States Citizenship & Immigration Services of the Department of Homeland Security.

StethoscopeNot every physician can perform immigration physical (USCIS) exams – the USCIS has a list of authorized providers applicants can use for this service.

Please visit the USCIS website here and enter the zip code “34471” to search for our authorization. The information of our chief medical officer, Dr. Choksi, can be found and verified through this site.

At Jet Medical Center, our team is committed to helping people with their immigration physical exams, and some of the requirements for this exam has changed in the late months of 2021.

Please note the following changes to the USCIS physical examination:
