Immigration Medical Exams - Frequently Asked Questions


What happens if I have a physical or mental disorder with associated harmful behavior?

If you have a physical or mental condition with associated harmful behavior, you may still be eligible for Adjustment of Status. You may apply for a waiver according to the terms and conditions established by the USCIS, in consultation with the CDC. If you are applying for Adjustment of Status in the U.S., you must file Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Excludability, including fee payment, with the USCIS office considering your Adjustment of Status application. If you are applying for an immigrant visa at a U.S. Consular post abroad, you must submit your waiver application to the Consular post that is considering your immigrant visa application. The Consular post will send your waiver application to the overseas USCIS office in that jurisdiction for a decision. If you are applying for admission as a Refugee, or for Adjustment of Status one year following your initial admission as a Refugee or the grant of Asylum, you may be granted a waiver for humanitarian reasons, to assure family unity, or when it is otherwise in the public interest. You must file Form I-602 , Application by Refugee for Waiver of Ground of Excludability, but you are not required to pay a fee.
