Immigration Physical Exam (USCIS)

In by JetMedicalCenter

Jet Medical Center® is pleased to offer immigration physical services. Dr. Choksi is a licensed US Civil Surgeon who has been authorized by USCIS to conduct Immigration Physicals for the Department of Homeland Security. Individuals applying for citizenship or are seeking permanent residency or a Green Card for employment are required to obtain an immigration physical performed by a designated Civil Surgeon prior to approval of their application. The exam results will be recorded on Form I-69 3 for the applicant to return to the USCIS (INS). The exam process generally takes 3-5 days, depending on lab processing times. Our goal is to efficiently and affordably provide immigration physical exam evaluations with appropriate testing in the shortest time. We welcome you to the United States to live the American Dream!

The cost of the complete Immigration Physical Examination is $675.00 and includes:
  • Physical Examination
  • Review of your written vaccination and other health records
  • Urine Gonorrhea & Blood Syphilis testing (RPR)- As per updated guidelines above
  • Tuberculosis Blood Testing. This is required for applicants 2 and older. If the test result is positive, a chest X-ray will be required. The cost of the X-ray, should it be necessary, is not included in the price of the immigration exam but can be completed for an additional fee
  • Certified and Sealed I-693 form with a copy for yourself
  • Copies of your laboratory testing
  • Other vaccinations as required by USCIS / Immigration services are available at an additional cost.
  • Valid, government issued picture ID such as a valid passport (preferred), driver’s license, green card, or military ID
  • Medical records (translated to English by an official translator, if necessary), including proof of prior treatment for tuberculosis or other infectious disease and prior chest x-rays
  • Immunization records (translated to English by an official translator)
  • Any mental health records (translated to English by an official translator, if necessary)
Do you have difficulty learning English? Do you have any medical problems that would make it difficult to study for the civics exam? We can help! We review all medical documents and work with specialists to show why you would be incapable of demonstrating the required civics knowledge. We have found that simply reporting English is not your first language is not good enough. We will review all medical documents and work with specialist to explain to USCIS why you are “unable to learn and/or demonstrate knowledge of English and/ or U.S. history and civics because of a physical or developmental disability, or mental impairment (or a combination of impairments).”

Consultations for this start at $250, and if we accept your case, we will apply this fee to your final bill. Please call for more information.


Once the immigration medical examination is completed and all immunizations and/or lab tests have been performed, we will provide you with a certified form I-693 in a sealed envelope to present to the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services. DO NOT OPEN THE SEALED ENVELOPE. Turn in the envelope with your immigration application. A copy of your blood tests results and exam will be provided for you to keep after results have been discussed with the doctor. The medical examination will be valid for up to one year after the immigration exam date.

Typically, you will be notified of the results of your lab work (and chest x-ray, if done) within 7-10 days. If you have a health condition requires that medical follow-up, clearance will not be granted until follow-up evaluation is completed. You will be responsible for the cost of any additional medical examinations or treatments required to fulfill the federal health requirements established by USCIS. It is your responsibility to bring a translator specific to your language to the evaluation and to have all of your necessary immunization and medical records translated into English by an official translator. All components including the physical exam must be paid at the time of your exam. We accept cash, American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
