Immigration Physicals

If you are living in Arkansas and seeking resident status or an adjustment in your current status, immigration physicals are a requirement of the application process.

At UAMS, our Preventive, Occupational and Environmental Medicine clinic (POEM) program offers immigration physicals, which consist of an extensive interview on your medical history, a complete physical and any tests or immunizations required by immigration services. After all the necessary tests and evaluations, you will be given an official, sealed document to provide to an immigration officer.

All applicants will have an extensive history, a complete physical and any tests or immunizations required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Your exam will include:

  • A physical examination
  • T-Spot (TB screening)
  • Syphilis testing
  • Gonorrhea Testing
  • Required immunizations

To speed up the paperwork process, please bring the following with you to your visit:

  • Picture ID (passport or other federally approved documentation that is not expired)
  • Medical records for any chronic or serious medical problem
  • Vaccination records, and records of immunity (titers) if they have been done
  • Alien registration number, if available
  • I-693 with only your personal information completed (do not sign the document) Go to for a PDF version of this document – this form must be done in black ink only.
