Immigration Physicals in Arlington
Convenient Medical Care to Reach Your Immigration Goals
At Urgentology Care, we are proud to help individuals and families pursue their immigration journey to become U.S. lawful permanent residents in Arlington and its surrounding areas. When you apply for a green card via adjustment of status, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires you to see an authorized doctor, also known as a civil surgeon, to perform a medical examination and fill out an official medical report. This is an important part of preparing your application package for your adjustment of status.
Our comprehensive $490 immigration physical package includes:
- Physical examination
- Standard Lab testing
USCIS mandates this immigration physical to identify applicants who have health conditions considered inadmissible such as infections presenting a public health risk or lack of necessary immunizations. Our team at Urgentology Care can perform your physical by appointment or on a walk-in basis. However, if you need additional vaccinations to meet the USCIS requirements, we may need to schedule a follow-up appointment or refer you to a vaccine center.

What to Bring to Your Immigration Medical Appointment
Collecting the appropriate documents for your immigration medical examination can simplify the process for both you and our provider. This helps us have accurate information about your medical history and fill out the official USCIS form for your immigration application.
You need to bring the following documents for your immigration physical:
- Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record
- Government-issued photo identification
- Vaccination record
- Other pertinent medical records, if applicable
- Medical insurance card (if you intend to use for lab work or vaccines)
Please bring a list of your current prescription medications if you are taking any for a chronic health condition.
If you previously had tuberculosis or syphilis, you need to bring a doctor’s certificate confirming that you received appropriate treatment.
If anyone in your family is applying for an adjustment of status with a learning disability, you need to bring a medical report that includes any specific education or supervision requirements.
In the case of previous treatment or hospitalization for psychiatric or mental conditions or substance abuse, you must bring a certification that includes the diagnosis, duration of treatment, and prognosis.
If you are unsure what documents to bring based on your physical or mental health history, you can talk to your immigration attorney for clarification, or you can ask us before or during your appointment.
What Is Involved in an Immigration Physical in Arlington?
Our immigration medical examination includes:
- A physical examination
- A mental health screening for any harmful behavior
- A blood test for syphilis
- Chest x-rays for tuberculosis
- Urine test for gonorrhea
We can perform the lab test at our clinic for your convenience. Our provider also carefully evaluates your medical history and checks for any missing vaccinations that you need for your immigration application.
Both the Immigration and Nationality Act and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) require specific vaccinations for individuals applying for permanent residency in the United States.
You must receive the following immunizations to be eligible for a green card:
- Mumps, measles, rubella
- Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids
- Haemophilus influenzae type B
- Hepatitis B
- Pneumococcal pneumonia
- Hepatitis A
Our doctor can complete the form I-693 after your examination. We may postpone it until after you receive appropriate vaccinations during a follow-up appointment. Once completed, our provider seals the form in an envelope, so you can submit it to USCIS. Make sure not to open this envelope as a broken or altered seal would render your medical form void. If this happens, you will have to undergo another immigration physical at your own expense. Before we seal the envelope, you can request a copy of the completed Form I-693 for your personal records.
