Immigration Physicals Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring?
You should bring the following to your exam:

  • Vaccine records and any lab results
  • Government-issued photo ID
  • Interpreter if needed
Will you accept immunizations I have already received?
Yes. If you have received any immunizations at another medical clinic, we will accept them. We perform your examination and administer only the vaccinations currently needed.

After checking in, we will:

  • Have you fill out page 1 of form I-693

  • Patients (15 years and older) require blood work to screen for Tuberculosis and Syphilis and a urine test for Gonorrhea.
What will the exam cost and how long will it last?
The cost of an immigration physical varies according to the needs of the patient. The final cost depends on which vaccine(s) you already have, and whether you need a TB skin test or chest X-ray.

When will I receive my completed documents?
As soon as all the required information is available – including lab results, TB test results (CXR if required), and immunization information – we will have you come in to the clinic to review and sign the forms. We will then provide you with a sealed packet of forms for immigration services, as well as a copy for your own records.

  • MMR
  • Tdap
