MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF FOR THE IMMIGRATION MEDICAL EXAMINATION….Part 1

December 18, 2014

For immigration applicants who are applying for a green card or permanent residency in the United States they should know that children under 15 years of age are not required to undergo chest x-rays or blood tests. But they are required to undergo immunizations and also go through a general physical examination.

To help the USCIS-approved surgeon make as accurate a report as possible, the applicant should discuss their medical history and current conditions, if any, such as diabetes, hypertension, or any other conditions, as well as medication being taken.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND HISTORY: 1) TUBERCULOSIS:

If the immigrant applicant has tested positively for tuberculosis a certificate will have to be brought from the doctor that gives details of the circumstances surrounding the positive test results, the treatment taken, what kind of medication was prescribed and the tenure of the treatment.

A written certificate, signed by the doctor should be taken from the doctor that proves that the applicant was adequately treated. The written certificate should include dates and the type of medication taken.

If there has ever been an abnormal chest x-ray arrange to get the last x-rays taken and bring them to the examination.

The actual may be required (not the typed reports) so that the same can be compared with the x-rays that will be taken at the immigration medical examination.

We shall look at other medical conditions that could impact the examination. Keep watching this space for more details!
