Please contact our office today at 877-680-5800 to learn more about Immigration DNA Testing for Jamaica.

Next, contact IDTO DNA Test Center to coordinate your appointment at 877-680-5800.

If your alleged blood relative is a U.S. citizen or LPR, the U.S. laboratory will first analyze the DNA in their sample. DHL will then forward a test kit to the U.S. Embassy in Kingston.

If your alleged blood relative resides in Jamaica, then DHL will forward two test kits to the U.S. Embassy in Kingston after the kits are paid for by the U.S. petitioner.

3.When the test kit is received, you will come to the Embassy and submit a cheek swab tissue sample. Please see details below about scheduling a DNA test appointment.

4.If the DNA test verifies the claimed relationship, processing of your application or petition will resume. 


How much does Immigration DNA Test cost for Jamaica?

Why does my family have to perform a DNA test?

 Families who are given the option to use a DNA test to provide proof of biological relationship are given this option due to lack of evidence submitted by their family to an  Embassy or USCIS. In order to get the process started. The Embassy or USCIS must provide your family with a documentation letter that offers an option to perform DNA Testing. The document must have the  USCIS or an Embassy letterhead. 

Having the necessary documentation will allow for your family to have a much smoother process. It also should be noted that there are certain instances where documents may not be issued. Please contact one of our DNA Testing Experts to learn more at 877-680-5800.

How do I schedule my DNA test appointment at the U.S. Embassy?

For Immigrant Visa cases (case numbers beginning with KNG): Once a DNA kit arrives at the U.S. Embassy, the Consular Section will contact applicants by phone to schedule a DNA appointment (using the phone number the petitioner provided to the U.S. lab for DNA testing).

For USCIS cases (case numbers beginning with WAC/EAC/SRC/LIN/MSC and NBC):  Once a DNA kit arrives at the U.S. Embassy, the Consular Section will contact applicants by phone to schedule a DNA appointment (using the phone number the petitioner provided to the U.S. lab for DNA testing). Check out the  U.S. Embassy in Jamaica website.

What do I bring to the U.S. Embassy on the day of my DNA Test appointment?

Each person being tested must bring the following documents or you will be turned away:

Current passport

Photocopy of current passport’s biographic information page

Two (2) passport size photographs

Receipt from Andrews Memorial Hospital in Kingston showing a payment of US$30 for each person who is being tested

Accreditation Requirements

All immigration DNA Tests are performed by an AABB accredited laboratory.  Knowing this aspect is an extremely important piece of information when scheduling your DNA appointment. If you have testing performed by another company not name IDTO and the lab is not accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks  (AABB) your results will be denied.)

As a special note to New York State residents if you are not going to use IDTO’s immigration DNA Test services. It is important to know in addition to the lab needing to be AABB accredited. It is important to make sure the lab performing your DNA testing is accredited by the New York State Health Department (NYSDOH). If not, your results may not be accepted by any of USCIS centers in NYS or if you are asked to submit DNA proof to an immigration judge. 

Again, this is only for families who reside in the state of New York.

As mentioned in the paragraphs above. All tests are performed by an accredited  AABB laboratory. This accreditation basically means that your results will be recognized by  USCIS, embassies and immigration judges worldwide. Although, all Immigration DNA Testing Jamaica services follow the protocol set forth by immigration. The immigration officer assigned to your case is the authority on what decision will be rendered in your case. DNA Testing is only an option offered by immigration in order to strengthen a family case evidence to help determine a decision from immigration. To learn more about the immigration DNA testing process for Jamaica please call one of our DNA Testing Experts at 877-680-5800.
