What To Expect During USCIS i-693

The green card medical examination process (USCIS i-693) is a necessary step that is required in the immigration process if your or your family members are seeking a green card. This examination must be completed by a government authorized doctor, and consists of a few main parts.

The main parts of an USCIS i-693 exam are:

  • Physical and mental evaluation
  • Review of your immunization records and medical history
  • Screening for drugs and alcohol
  • Tests for illnesses and diseases

Why must I go through all of this to obtain my green card?

The purpose of the medical examination is to ensure that applicants do not have any health conditions that deems them “inadmissible”. Inadmissible means an individual is not eligible to receive their green card. 

This may sound sound stressful, but with proper preparation there is no need to worry!

Overall, it is very rare to not pass the USCIS i-693 medical examination.
