The examination itself consists of four tests:
- The first test is a physical examination. You will be asked several questions at this point and your mental state will be assessed.
- The second part of the immigration physical is a simple tuberculin skin test for all applicants of 2 years of age or over. This will show whether or not you have ever been exposed to the tuberculosis causing bacteria, and therefore suffered with the illness in the past. This is routine, and everyone in the United States has had the same test done.
- The third part of the test requires a blood sample to be taken that will determine if you have any illnesses such as RPR (syphilis) and a urine test for Gonorrhea. If it is found that you are positive then you will receive counseling from the civil surgeon who conducted your blood test. Blood tests depend on the health of the patient being examined and their age is a modifying factor as well. MOST exams require TB skin test and or Chest X-ray if positive TB. If the child is under 15 blood and urine not required.
- You will need to show proof of all previous vaccinations that you have had in the final part of this test. Normally you will be able to obtain paperwork from your current doctor for this stage to show to the civil surgeon that all your immunizations are currently up to date. However, if you cannot obtain this we will be able to test your blood to see what vaccinations you have received in the past, and administer any that you currently need to have.
