Immigration Physicals

In most cases, if you wish to obtain a green card—otherwise known as “adjustment of status” (Form I-485)—a medical examination will be required. Some requests for “V” nonimmigrant status also involve a medical exam requirement. If you are in the United States, you must obtain a medical exam by a “civil surgeon”—a physician who has received designation from United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). If you are outside of the U.S., you must receive a medical examination from a “panel physician”—a physician who has been designated by the United States Department of State.

We have physicians on our team at Washington Township Medical Foundation who are able to provide immigration physicals. This includes Dr. Lincy Mathew, M.D., who has received designation as a “civil surgeon” from USCIS. These appointments involve a physical examination, a blood test, and vaccinations if necessary. You can learn more about physical examinations and immigration physicals as part of the adjustment of status process on the USCIS website. Our team is also available to answer any questions you may have.
