What to bring with you to your exam
Valid, government issued picture ID such as a driver’s license or passport (preferred).

The full INS immigration exam requires only 4 basic steps:
Basic immigration physical exam and mental status evaluation
Blood Test: All adults are required to have a serologic blood test for Syphilis (RPR).
Tuberculosis test: All adult applicants are required to have a tuberculin test performed.
Proof of vaccinations or blood Titer to prove immunity. Most adults require proof of vaccination for Tetanus-Diphtheria Td (within the last 5 years), Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella (Chicken Pox). Blood Titer is a test that proves that a person has immunity or antibodies for a particular disease. The Immigration Doctor will review your vaccination history with you to determine whether you have all the required vaccinations. The cost of additional vaccinations is not included in the price of the basic exam but they are offered through our office for an additional fee. Please bring all vaccination records to your scheduled appointment for the immigration physical.
After The Exam
After the immigration physical examination is completed, the Doctor will certify Form I-693 with the test results of the immigration exam and vaccination history in a sealed enveloped to present to the INS. DO NOT OPEN THE SEALED ENVELOPE. Turn in the envelope with your immigration application. A copy of your blood tests results will be provided for you to keep after results have been discussed with the examining doctor. The examination will only be valid up to a year after the immigration exam date.
