Immigration Physical Q&A

What are immigration physicals?

Immigration physicals are medical exams that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires individuals seeking to enter or reside in the U.S. to undergo. The purpose of these exams is to assess your health status and to determine if you pose a risk to public health.


Only a licensed civil surgeon authorized by the USCIS can perform the exam. At Clinica Medica Hispana, patients can rest assured that their provider has the proper credentials, training, and experience to accurately and efficiently conduct immigration physicals.

Why are immigration physicals necessary?

Immigration physicals ensure that individuals entering and planning to live in the U.S. aren’t carrying communicable diseases, which can infect others. They keep communities safe by protecting public health. You may also need one for your green card or visa application, as these results serve as proof of your health and eligibility to enter the country.


These comprehensive exams assess whether you meet the physical, mental, and cognitive requirements for traveling and living in the U.S.

I’m getting an immigration physical. What can I expect?

How the Clinica Medica Hispana team conducts your exam depends on your medical history. Depending on your needs, the exam may include:

During your immigration physical at Clinica Medica Hispana, the team also asks about any previous conditions or surgeries you’ve had and medications you’re currently taking.

What happens after immigration physicals?
