Immigration Medical Examination: Bringing You One Step Closer to U.S. Citizenship
The immigration process of the United States require individuals to undergo a specific medical examination to remove medical grounds of inadmissibility. The immigration medical exam makes sure that individuals don’t have any of these conditions:
- Any communicable disease that is of public health significance
- A physical or mental condition associated with harmful behavior
- History of substance abuse or addiction
- Lack of proof of required vaccinations
The exam takes a comprehensive look at medical history and current conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and current medications. Meanwhile, vaccinations include those for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, hemophilius influenza type B, hepatitis A and B, varicella, influenza, pneumococcal pneumonia, rotavirus, and meningococcal.
Not all doctors can conduct an immigration medical. Individuals who are applying as U.S. immigrants must go to a physician approved and certified by the U.S. government.
