USCIS-Certified Immigration Physical Exams in Belleville, MI

Senior patient speaking to doctorDr. Sanjay Murthy, MD, MPH & TM is one of the few doctors in the area that is qualified to perform physicals on new immigrants. 

If you are a new immigrant to the U.S., you’ll need an immigration physical exam to apply for a U.S. green card or U.S. citizenship. At Belleville Health Care, PC, we can provide you with the healthcare services needed to advance towards becoming a U.S. citizen. No matter your age or country of origin, we can provide all necessary medical services to administer these physical exams. 

How do I prepare for an immigration physical? 

Prior to your walk-in health exam, it is very important to bring all necessary documentation to make the process go smoothly. You should bring your:

  • Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record
  • Government-issued photo identification, such as a valid passport or driver’s license. If you or your family member is 14 years old or younger, please bring identification that shows name, date of birth, place of birth and parents’ full names. Under 14 forms of identification include a birth certificate (with an English translation) or an affidavit.
  • Vaccination or immunization record (such as DT, DTP, DTaP, Td, Tdap, OPV, IPV, MMR, Hib, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, varicella, pneumococcal influenza, rotavirus and meningococcal disease)
  • Medical insurance card

What should I expect from an immigration physical exam?

  • Complete reporting of all examination results, including the I-693 form
  • Common physical examination
  • Review of patient’s vaccination history
  • Screening for tuberculosis, syphilis and gonorrhea (syphilis and gonorrhea are tested if the patient is over the age of 15) 

In the event that additional testing or medical needs are necessary to treat health issues presented during your health exam, we will provide in-house bloodwork, x-rays and vaccinations during the same visit. 

I completed my immigration physical exam. Now what?

After the exam has been completed, your physician is responsible for completing Form I-693. They will place the form in an envelope, seal it and give it to you for submission to the USCIS. It is your responsibility to submit the envelope to the USCIS, not your physician’s. Make sure you get a copy of the completed Form I-693 for your personal records before your doctor seals the envelope. USCIS will not accept the form if the envelope has been opened or altered.
