According to our clients that we have helped in the past. Receiving an interview date can range anywhere from 30 to 90 days. Please keep in mind that the length of time for receiving a response from immigration will be predicated on the Immigration Officer handling your family’s case.

Is a DNA test required for immigration?

How we understand the immigration process is, Immigration (USCIS, Embassies or the Passport Agency) do not require you to perform a DNA test. It is, however, strongly suggested.

DNA Testing for immigrant families who no longer have the necessary documents that the requesting Immigration Office requires may have no other alternative but to submit a DNA test result as evidence. Currently, as it stands, immigration does not have a law technically requiring families to perform DNA testing. Although we believe this may change in the near future. If you would like to learn more about our DNA relationship testing services please call 877-680-5800.

How long does it take to get my visa after DNA results?

Once your DNA Test results are completed a copy of your result is mailed to the requesting Immigration Office (USCIS, US Embassy or the Passport Agency). The turnaround time for your family member to receive their visa is uncertain. In the past, we have heard from families whose samples we have collected that the process has taken anywhere from 30-90 days.
