Fulfilling immigration exam requirements

Medical examinations are required by the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) to obtain a US green card or US citizenship. Only doctors designated by the USCIS as civil surgeons can complete an immigration exam. Better Faster Urgent Care provides all necessary medical services to fulfill immigration exam requirements for US citizenship applicants of all ages. Better Faster Urgent Cart also provides vaccination assessments and services for refugees.

Please bring Form I-693 to your exam. The government requires this for completion of your immigration physical.

What Does an Immigration Exam Include?

  • Completion of all exam results reporting, including the I-693 form
  • Physical examination
  • Vaccination history review
  • Screening for tuberculosis, syphilis*, and gonorrhea*

Should additional testing or vaccinations be necessary to treat any health issues identified during the exam, Better Faster Urgent Care can provide blood work, x-rays, and vaccinations during the same visit for the convenience of the applicant.**

* Required for ages 15 and above

** Additional fees will apply
