Are medical exams required for adjustment of status?

Whether you wish to become a permanent resident in order to spend time with your loved ones or move forward in a successful career, you may want to adjust your status for various reasons. Furthermore, you may have a number of questions regarding green cards and other aspects of immigration law. If you live in Miami-Dade, or another section of Florida, it is vital to find the correct answers to any of your questions and carefully move forward.

When it comes to the adjustment of status, medical exams are usually required, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. If you are planning on applying to adjust your status, it is important to understand what will be required of you. If you wish to adjust your status from within the United States, you will need to visit a civil surgeon (a physician that has been assigned by the USCIS) and have them perform a medical exam. Moreover, you should keep in mind that the medical exam fees vary from one surgeon to another and the USCIS does not control how much a physician can charge.

Handling immigration matters can be stressful, especially for those who are unsure of which steps are required. Having said that, you may have an easier time working through the adjustment of status process if you know what to expect and are fully prepared.
