DNA testing is an important step to complete the immigration process for family members. It is required to prove a biological relationship between a petitioner and a beneficiary, using an AABB accredited lab, when evidence (e.g, birth certificate) is deemed insufficient or inconclusive by the USCIS or U.S. embassy. Examples of DNA tests used for immigration purposes include paternity tests, maternity tests, siblingship tests, and grandparentage tests.

 

Our laboratory is an AABB accredited laboratory that can coordinate all DNA sample collections regardless of location. Guidelines issued by the US Department of State and AABB require that an AABB laboratory coordinate the entire DNA testing process - Choice DNA is here to help!

AABB requirements:

  1. Choice DNA Laboratory schedules the petitioner appointment if they are located in the US
  2. Choice DNA Laboratory ships a DNA collection kit to the US Embassy / USCIS office in your home country
  3. US Embassy / USCIS office collects the beneficiary's DNA sample and ships the samples back to the United States Laboratory
  4. Once testing is complete, our laboratory ships the DNA testing results directly to the requesting Immigration office

A DNA test is requested to provide proof of a family relationship (e.g., paternity, maternity, siblingship) that is the basis for an immigration case when the paper documentation is missing or found insufficient to support the application.

If a DNA test was recommended by the U.S. Embassy/Consulate or USCIS office processing your immigration case, a copy of the written request is the first thing we need to get started. It typically contains the following:

  • Your file/case number
  • The names of the persons to be tested
  • The type of relationship to be tested
