Immigration DNA Testing

photo of immigration rallyWhen families immigrate to this country, they are required to produce documentation that proves they’re related, such as a birth certificate or school records. But there are times when these aren’t enough for authorities because they may not be conclusive. In these cases, immigration DNA testing may be required to ensure the immigration.

The person petitioning for immigration would then be tested, along with all beneficiaries who are coming into the country. The cost of the test is the responsibility of the petitioner.

Normally, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the department that would request immigration DNA testing. This would occur if the documents the petitioner supplied in the interview weren’t sufficient.

Other times, the family will voluntarily arrange for the testing to be performed out of an assumption that their paperwork won’t be enough.

Our Process

Immigration DNA TestingWhen a family is told by the USCIS to get immigration DNA testing done, it’s regarded as a key piece of evidence when it comes to their approval to be allowed to live in the country.

That’s why it’s important to have the testing done by a reputable laboratory. Our lab, DNA Diagnostic Center, is accredited by the AABB (formerly the American Association of Blood Banks) and holds international certifications from ACLASS Accreditation Services.

How To Start:

  1. File your I-130 form: This form is a Petition for Alien Relative and the very first step to bringing your family or relatives to the United States of America. Upon filling out this form, your request will be assessed by the USCIS or the agency you are filing through. Once reviewed, you may receive paperwork to have DNA testing completed to prove your relationship with the individual.
  2. Call Choice DNA: Once you receive the paperwork requesting immigration DNA testing, you will need to contact an accredited testing laboratory to have immigration DNA testing completed. Choice DNA provides court admissible immgration DNA testing for your petition. Ensure you provide contact information for you and your beneficiary. To get started today on immigration DNA testing, give us a call at 800-219-4362.
  3. Copy Your Paperwork: Many agencies may need to see the I-130 form, USCIS DNA request, and any paperwork from Choice DNA. Keep a copy on hand for your records as well as a copy to present when requested.

To get started on your procedure, we’ll need your file or case number, the names of the people who are to be tested and their relationships to one another. Our laboratory follows the AABB regulations for immigration DNA testing and will schedule a date to collect your DNA sample in the United States. For your beneficiary or relative, a DNA collection kit will be received at the embassy within the country of origin. Once both samples are received, our lab will begin immigration DNA testing proceedings. Once the testing is complete, our lab will ship the results directly to the requested immigration office in the home country and to the USCIS. We also send a copy to you, the petitioner, for your case and records.
