    Immigration Physicals
    Did you know that Union County Healthcare Associates is one of the few medical practices in New Jersey where you can get a complete immigration physical to help you continue your quest for citizenship? Two of our physicians, Dr. Kamran Tasharofi and Dr. Neil Estrella, are Civil Surgeons who are legally and medically qualified to conduct immigration physical medical examinations according to their designation by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

    What do I need to bring?
    You have to bring your passport photo and any other identification you have before we can do any examination, administer vaccines or initiate testing. Please provide the documentation of previous vaccinations at the time your visit.

    What kinds of tests are needed?
    Department of Homeland Security reviews and updates the requirements from time to time and notifies the Civil Surgeons of the changes. Currently the only blood testing required for naturalization process is RPR (Syphilis).

    What kinds of immunizations are needed?
    We provide a full list below, with their associated costs.

    What does it cost to get the physical and everything else I need?That depends on what previous vaccinations you may have received, when they were administered, and if you can produce documentation to prove they are current under US immigration guidelines. The cost for the medical examination is $185, and we require cash payment on the day of service for all immigration services rendered.

    Here is a list of other vaccinations that may be required, what each costs, and the age range necessary for each one:
