Immigration Exams

At Village Health Partners, we have your family covered from basic medical tests and physicals to wound care and minor procedures. We are a family practice provider and can cover the majority, if not all, of your healthcare needs, including immigration exams for men, women, and children entering and residing in the U.S. from another country. Our physicians are certified by USCIS, formerly INH to perform your immigration exam. The immigration medical exam must be conducted by a physician who is designated by USCIS (also known as a civil surgeon). We are here to provide thorough, accurate, and affordable care to clients and will ensure that your exam is expedited quickly, meeting all requirements and government protocols.

How to be Prepared

Our physicians at Village Health Partners are registered to provide INS physical examinations, immunizations, and other healthcare-related services as governed by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). We welcome you to make an appointment or call for a walk-in appointment to have your immigration exam completed. Before arriving at our medical facility for your exam, please make sure you bring the following:

  • A valid picture government ID (driver's license or passport, cannot be expired)
  • I-693 paperwork (download at
  • Official shot record (without proof of immunizations, you must receive all required vaccines)

We recommend that you print out and bring the most recent version of Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, to your medical exam appointment at Village Health Partners. Please carefully fill out the paperwork accordingly, completing Part 1 of the I-693 form, but do not sign your name until our medical team instructs you to do so. This form will be used to document and detail the results of your immigration medical exam.

Completing the PRocess

Once the exam has been completed, our staff at Village Health Partners, under the guidance of our civil surgeon, will complete, sign, and seal the official I-693 form, along with any supporting documents in an envelope. It is the patient's responsibility to submit this sealed envelope to USCIS. This information is documented on the I-693 form under instructions.
