Words from our patients

Immigration Medical Exam

Can I fail my immigration examination?

In most cases, the only applicants who are denied their green card because of their immigration medical exam are those who have a contagious disease or those who have very debilitating health conditions that could be too expensive for them to maintain.
If you generally enjoy good health, a simple cold or flu will not stop you from getting your green card.
