What types of relationships will USCIS or an Embassy ask me to provide proof for?

Often times families may need to provide to secondary proof if you are unable to submit the requested primary evidence to an Embassy, USCIS center or,  a Passport Agency.  If this is the case, the accepted relationships immigration may request your family to perform are paternity, maternity, or a sibling DNA. 

Here is what you can expect from the DNA Testing Immigration process.

  • The petitioner will receive a letter or email from USCIS, Embassy or Passport Agency requesting your family to provide additional proof of a biological relationship.
  • After receipt of your request letter, You may contact our office to learn about DNA sample collection appointments at 877-680-5800. All DNA tests for immigration purposes are under the strict direction of an AABB Accredited Laboratory to ensure the proper legal chain of custody testing is performed. To learn more about our relationship testing services please call 877-680-5800.
  • Once your samples are collected and arrive at the DNA lab. The laboratory will ship a DNA kit to the Embassy in your country on your family’s behalf.
  • Embassies are responsible for coordinating DNA sample collections abroad.
  • After your family members samples are collected, they will be shipped back to the AABB Accredited Laboratory.
  • Once all samples arrive at the laboratory they will be analyzed and a copy of the completed DNA result will be sent to the requesting immigration office. A copy will be also sent to the petitioner.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to receive my DNA result?

Turnaround time for results will be predicated upon the location of all family members involved with the Immigration DNA test.

For example, if all parties are located here in the United States. The average turnaround time for results will be 2-3 business days.

For International Immigration DNA testing the average turnaround time for results is 6-8 weeks, sometimes longer.

How much does a DNA test cost?

The cost of a DNA test for the purposes of immigration will depend upon how many people are involved with your DNA test and the location of all the parties involved. To learn more about our relationship testing services please call our office today at 877-680-5800.

How long does it take to get interview date after the DNA test?

Over the years, we have been contacted by families who samples we have collected to share the great news of their family members receiving their visas. During these conversations with our clients over the years, we learned that the response to interview dates seem to vary. 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.

The DNA testing services provided by Garth, our technician, were outstanding. Garth is extremely professional, communicative, accessible, and was available to schedule the DNA collection very quickly. The results of the DNA testing were available very quickly. Garth understood the sensitive nature of working with the children and families involved in the testing, and was very considerate to everyone involved in the process. I would highly recommend this DNA testing service.
