Most applicants for adjustment of status (Form I-485) are required to have a medical examination. A civil surgeon who has been designated by the U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) conducts the medical examination. If you are applying for an immigrant visa outside of the United States through Consular Processing, the Department of State will inform you about specific medical requirements.
