Immigration exam/forms – $375.00


With so many details to cover and so much at stake, you don’t want to take chances with any aspect of your application for immigration to the United States. When you or a family member is so close to completing all the necessary paperwork and interviews required of the U.S. government for entry as a legal immigrant, make sure that your medical papers are in perfect order. Rely on the expertise of the civil surgeons at Century Medical and Dental Center in Brooklyn to get it right for you and your family, so that your transition to citizenship or permanent residency is as smooth and uncomplicated as possible.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, often requires that you get an immigration exam verifying that you are healthy and don’t have any conditions that would hamper your eligibility for citizenship. The green card exam for medical verification must be performed by a registered civil surgeon.

You’ll find the help you need — including a qualified civil surgeon who can successfully fill out the Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record — at Century Medical and Dental Center. With three convenient locations in Brooklyn, this practice has many experienced doctors who know the proper procedures and processes necessary to make your application acceptable.

Civil Surgeon Responsibilities

The USCIS authorizes certain eligible doctors to perform the required medical immigration exams on behalf of the Secretary of Homeland Security. As required, they assess an applicant’s health in regards to regulations as detailed in the report, labeled Form I-693. The civil surgeon’s main duty is to declare the applicant free of ineligible health conditions, including:

  • Addiction or signs of drug abuse
  • Mental or physical disorders that are associated with dangerous behavior
  • Communicable diseases that could pose a risk to public safety
  • Lack of necessary vaccinations

To become a civil surgeon, your doctor must have worked professionally for at least four years and completed all necessary training, such as residencies and internships, or received a special designation as a civil surgeon. Additionally, a civil surgeon must:

  • Be a Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) or a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.)
  • Have an unrestricted license in the state where the green card exams are performed
  • Stay informed of changes and technical instructions as provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Immigration Exam Health Restrictions

The human immunodeficiency virus, commonly referred to as HIV, is not a restricted communicable disease as of January 4, 2010. Communicable diseases that could make you ineligible for immigration status include:

  • Tuberculosis that’s become infectious
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Leprosy

To test for tuberculosis, your civil surgeon performs the screening test called a Tuberculin Skin Test (TST), required for all applicants over the age of two. A chest x-ray may be given if there are any questions about the initial screening.

The physical or mental disorder clause refers only to those conditions that may lead to harmful behavior, which is defined as destruction of property or that poses a threat to the welfare of others. While this is often based on past deeds or a psychiatric diagnosis, clearer instructions are provided to your doctor in the CDC’s technical manual. All applicants who are tested positive for drug abuse are ineligible for legal immigrant status.
