INS exams are conducted by a civil surgeon who is responsible for the entire examination, and who will record the results on the required forms. An adult exam typically includes:
- A physical examination
- A tuberculin (TB) test. A chest x-ray within 6 months of the examination is required for anyone with a positive test.
- A blood test for syphilis
- Routine immunizations
Pediatric exams for children 14 or younger do not require blood testing. They include a physical examination, a TB test, and routine pediatric immunizations.
People should bring these items with them on the day of their INS exam:
- INS Form I-693
- Supplemental Form To I-693
- All medications and immunization records for each family member seeking entry—especially important for pre-school and school-age children
- Any recent records of blood tests for AIDS, syphilis, measles (rubeola), rubella (German measles), mumps or chickenpox
- Any report of a chest x-ray (within 6 months)
- Any records of a test for TB
If a person has a health condition that requires medical follow-up, medical clearance will not be granted until follow-up is completed.
