Medical examinations required by U.S. Immigration Service.

Family Medicine of Mechanicville provides examinations required by the U.S. Immigration Service and is conveniently located in the Capital Region, close to Halfmoon, Clifton Park, Malta, Troy, Cohoes, Latham, Stillwater, and just 15 minutes from Albany.

For your first appointment, we require you to bring a photo ID, your vaccination records translated into English, and your full payment of $350 for this process. For kids up to 15 y/o the entire process will be just $300. The $350 covers the initial nurse visit, TB test (PPD), syphilis test (RPR) and the the physical examination. Insurance doesn’t cover the $350 fee.

Please go to www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-693.pdf and print out this required form and bring it with you for your visit; otherwise, we can print it out for you in our office at no additional charge. For information on how to fill out this form, go to: www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-693instr.pdf

Remember, the vaccines required by immigration are not included in the $350 charge. After your first visit you will know what extra vaccines you may need. Please call your health insurer to see if these vaccines are covered; if you lack insurance, you will be responsible for the full cost. We strongly encourage you to obtain your vaccination records from your country; it may save you some money. We may be able to give some of the vaccinations on site. But you may need to go elsewhere.  Also remember, this is not a one-step process, you may need up to 3 visits. The length of the process may depend on your health, and your individual circumstances.
