About the Uniting for Ukraine (U4U) Program
President Biden announced Uniting for Ukraine, a new program to support Ukrainians who have been displaced from their homes due to the war. Uniting for Ukraine (U4U) provides a pathway for Ukrainian citizens to come to the United States and stay for a temporary two-year period. One of the U4U beneficiary requirements for medical screening and attestation after arrival to the United States is to complete medical evaluation for Tuberculosis (TB), including an Interferon-Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) blood test within 90 days of arrival (Learn more at Uniting for Ukraine Vaccine Attestation | USCIS).
