How long does the  Immigration DNA Testing take in Sierra Leone Process?

This is the most popular question asked by many people when inquiring about this process.  This question can not be answered definitively. In our over ten years experience with the  Immigration DNA Testing process. We have noticed that a 6-8 week turnaround time would be about average turnaround time.

Essentially the embassies are in control of scheduling of appointments abroad for beneficiaries. A number of people who may have had a request for DNA sample collection submitted before your family is not known by any lab so it is difficult to give any family a definitive time when their DNA testing collection for their relatives in Sierra Leone will be collected.
