The Exam

The full INS immigration exam is very simple and requires basic steps with 2 office visits. The basic steps are as follows: 

1. A basic immigration physical exam and mental status evaluation (exam sometimes may be performed on the second visit).

2. A blood test. Applicants age 15 and older are required to have a serologic blood test for syphilis (RPR).

3. Applicants under  age 15 may or may NOT require syphilis testing at the discretion of the civil surgeon or if there is reason to suspect the possibility of infection. Keep in mind that Florida law requires the lab to perform a confirmation test if your blood work turns positive. The charges for the extra lab work (confirmatory test) are not included in our prices and can cost extra depending on your lab results.

4. The full history of the applicant's medical status as related to the INS exam is taken.

5. Applicants age 2 and older are required to have a tuberculin skin test (PPD) performed. This test requires a return visit to the office within 48 to 72 hours after administration. If the test reading is greater than 5 MM of induration, a chest X ray will be required. We know that some applicants may have received a BCG vaccine in their home country, which may make the TB testing positive. We know how to handle those situations without compromising what is required for the INS physical.

6. If you should require a chest X ray, the cost of the X ray is not included in the price of the immigration exam. The X ray can be scheduled for you, or you may choose a radiology office on your own. We have relationships with a few radiology offices that can perform the chest X ray at a very reasonable and small cost if you should require one.

7. We need proof of vaccinations or blood tests to provide immunity. We can help you with completing you vaccination requirements. All vaccinations depend on your health history and age. We will let you know after the medical exam of any vaccination you may or may not require.
