Immigration Physical Q & A

Why do I need an immigration physical?

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services requires a comprehensive medical exam as part of the immigration process. In order to obtain your green card or citizenship in the United States, you need to have an immigration physical.

The purpose of an immigration physical is to ensure you are physically fit and free of any health issues or disease that may put yourself or the surrounding community at risk. Failing the physical exam can interfere with your admissibility into the United States.

What happens during an immigration physical?

During your immigration physical, Dr. Weisman takes the time to review your personal and family medical history and evaluates information concerning both your physical and mental health.

Following your discussion, Dr. Weisman performs a physical exam that includes evaluations of your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Skin health
  • Heart rhythm
  • Lung function
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature

Dr. Weisman and his team also assess your vision and hearing function during the exam.

If you need to be updated on required vaccinations to protect against disease, like measles, mumps, or tetanus, the WiseCare Urgent Care staff creates a timeline for receiving these vaccinations as required in the immigration process.
