An immigration evaluation, also known as an immigration psychological evaluation, is a type of psychological assessment conducted to determine whether an individual seeking immigration to a particular country meets the mental health requirements set by that country's immigration policies.
The evaluation typically involves a clinical interview, standardized psychological tests and a review of medical and mental health records. The evaluation assesses the individual's mental health status, including any history of mental health disorders or substance abuse, as well as their ability to cope with stress and adjust to a new environment. The evaluation process typically involves a detailed analysis of the applicant's personal, educational, and professional background, as well as their health and criminal history.
The results of the immigration evaluation are used to determine whether the individual is likely to pose a threat to themselves or others, whether they are likely to require mental health services, and whether they are likely to be able to adapt to the demands of life in a new country. This information is used by immigration officials to make decisions about the individual's eligibility for immigration. Immigration evaluations can be required for a variety of reasons, including family-based immigration, employment-based immigration, asylum, and other immigration programs.
*Immigration evaluations are not a covered insurance service*
