Immigration physicals are required for all individuals applying for citizenship, permanent residency, or a green card before approval of their application. Only USCIS Designated Civil Surgeons can perform these exams for them to be valid.
At AFC Urgent Care Stamford, our board-certified USCIS Designated Civil Surgeon is on staff on specific days within the month and can perform required immigration exams in accordance with the Department of Homeland Security and the US Citizens and Immigration Services (formerly INS).
Our comprehensive immigration physicals include:
- Chest X-Ray (if PPD is positive in 48-72 hours)
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Syphilis Test
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need all of these vaccines?
Depending upon your age, you may not need all of the required vaccinations. We encourage patients to call our center prior to their examination so we know what vaccinations are needed.
What I need to bring to the physical?
We ask that you bring the following to the physical:
- Recent photo ID: passport, driver’s license, or a state identification card
- Applicable payments due at time of service
- Complete vaccination record (Must be professionally translated into English)
Do I need to fill out any forms?
Applicants need to fill out an I-693 form for each applicant. We also ask applicants need to bring a complete registration package.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes, we ask that patients who are looking to have their immigration physical administered to please call our center to confirm which day this service is available. Our civil surgeon is available by appointments only, 7 days a week.
We also advise that you plan accordingly because after receiving the PPD, you must return to our center within 48-72 hours to have it read by one of our nurses. Failure to do so will result in having to receive another PPD.
Please note immigration physicals will have to be seen no later than 3 hours prior to closing.
