Medical exams

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, some panel physician offices may be closed. If you:

  • have a medical exam scheduled, please contact the panel physician’s office to ensure that it is still taking place
  • would like to schedule an Immigration Medical Examination (IME), please contact the panel physician’s office to verify that they are open and still performing exams

Note: If your application is in progress it will not be closed or refused because of your inability to complete your IME in time due to COVID-19. We’ll automatically give you 90 days to complete this step.
