Medical Exams for Fiance Visas
The immigration medical exam determines whether the fiancée visa or spousal applicant has an inadmissible health condition.
The civil surgeon first determines whether the applicant has any Class A or B medical conditions. Then the civil surgeon records this information the I-693. The immigration officer then reviews the medical information the I-693 during the course of an admissibility determination. The USCIS makes a determination based on the civil surgeon’s findings.
The immigration medical exam delves into the following: a review of the applicant’s medical history. This includes all hospitalizations, institutionalizations for chronic conditions, illnesses or disabilities, psychoactive drug and alcohol use, and chest X-rays and treatment records if the applicant has a history suggestive of TB. The doctor will also review any other available medical records. The doctor will conduct a review of the patient to determine the presence and degree of any Class A or B conditions. The doctor will also conduct a physical exam which will include an evaluation of mental status and any other relevant diagnostic tests.
The medical exam is an integral part of the fiancé visa and spousal visa process. Applicants in the USA who are applying for a green card are also required to submit a medical exam. Should you have any questions, please let me know at 626-771-1078
