What is medical inadmissibility to the United States?

Drug abuse or drug addiction
Not having the required vaccinations
Mental disorders or physical disorders that present a danger to others
Diseases that are contagious

As you can see, the reasons for medical inadmissibility to the United States are quite broad and varied. If you do fall into any of the above categories, keep in mind that individual people and cases are just as varied as these reasons for medical inadmissibility and your case will be reviewed individually.

What if I am medically inadmissible to the United States?
