Filing I-485: questions about medical?

3 posts in this topic

Filing I-130 tomorrow with the I-485 after as soon as I have all my documentation ready. I'm confused about the medical exam however: does that need to be included with the I-485 application?

Also if I am to get a medical examination what should I be asking for at the doctor's office? A blood test? General check-up?

If anyone knows of a doctor who they went to in New York City for this I'd appreciate the recommendation.

Thanks

Since yo appear to be adjusting from a non-family based visa:

Medical examination.

When required, submit a medical examination report on the form you have obtained from USCIS.

1. General: If you are filing your adjustment-of-status application with a USCIS Service Center, include your medical examination report with the application, unless you are a refugee.

google "USCIS civil surgeon locator" to find a civil surgeon authorized to do a USCIS exam in your area

Yes it must, and you need to go to a civil surgeon who is authorized to complete these medicals and forms,

find them here: https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=of...office_type=CIV

You need to complete a blood test x 2 (Syphilis and hiv), TB test and any vaccinations that you have not had in the past or that have expired. You can find a list of those on the USCIS website as well.
