If you are applying for a green card, you will need to have a medical examination. Part of this examination includes a syphilis test. Syphilis Test for Green Card is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that can cause serious health problems if it is not treated. The syphilis test is used to find out if you have the infection.
There are two types of syphilis tests: the rapid plasma reagin (RPR) test and the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (FTA–ABS) test. The RPR test is the most common type of test used. It can be done at your doctor‘s office or at a clinic. The FTA–ABS test is done at a laboratory.
If the RPR test is positive, it means that you have syphilis. The FTA–ABS test is then done to confirm the diagnosis. If the FTA–ABS test is positive, it means that you have syphilis. If the FTA–ABS test is negative, the RPR test is repeated.
If you have syphilis, you will need to be treated with antibiotics. You will also need to abstain from sexual activity for at least three months. After you have been treated, you will need to have another syphilis test to make sure that the infection has been cured.
