Immigration Physicals

Individuals applying for U.S. citizenship, seeking permanent residency, or trying to obtain a green card are required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to obtain an Immigration Medical Examination prior to the approval of their application.

The purpose of the Immigration Medical Examination is to evaluate the applicant’s health status and to determine if conditions exist that may preclude citizenship, residency or green card status. Exam results will be given to an Immigration Officer and may also be shared with other public health or cooperating medical authorities.

As required by USCIS, a designated Civil Surgeon licensed by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services must perform the exam. Holy Spirit is proud to have two Civil Surgeons on staff:

Salvatore Alfano, MD, FACEP 

Ramesh Arora, MD, MS, FACEP

Immigration Medical Examinations Include:

• Basic physical examination.

• Blood work required by USCIS, including TB skin testing and reporting.

• Administration of appropriate vaccines as required by USCIS.

Bring to your appointment:

• Government-issued photo identification card (a passport is preferred, a valid driver’s license is acceptable).

• Records of prior vaccinations.
