The Civil Surgeon is required to do an appropriate:
1) physical/mental examination;
2) laboratory testing (for Syphilis and Gonorrhea);
3) Tuberculosis screening (standard testing is PPD Tuberculin Skin Testing); and
4) updating of immunization vaccines.
Our TCMC price for the required first 3 elements is:
a) $440 for applicants 15 years of age or older
b) $330 for those under 15 years of age.
Any missing immunization vaccines can be given through your medical insurance as a preventative service at no additional charge. If you do not have medical insurance, then we can refer you to a federally funded clinic where you can get the necessary vaccines for $10-25 each.
USCIS require a chest X-ray only if your Tuberculosis screening is “positive”. If this immigration chest X-ray is necessary, it will cost $100 at TCMC.
Some applicants have already completed their USCIS medical exam and only require a Vaccine Update. At TCMC, Vaccine Updates cost $120, and include documenting valid proof of current immunizations on the I-693 Form, and a signature from the Civil Surgeon.
