Immigration DNA Testing

Families that want to immigrate to the United States are obligated to prove that they are all related. Documentation such as birth certificates and school records go a long way, but there are instances in which the government wants to know a bit more. This is when a DNA test comes into play.

In these cases, the person who has petitioned for immigration will be tested, as will all of the beneficiaries that are coming into the country. This is a legal test that determines the fate of where you’re allowed to live, so it’s very important to have the test done correctly. The lab that performs our testing is accredited. In fact, it’s strongly recommended that you ONLY use a lab on the AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) website. This will assist in the results being admissible in any court or governmental agency across the country.

Here is a helpful pointer:

Whatever lab you choose, be sure they will mail you a copy of your results personally and send them to the appropriate Embassy / USCIS immigration office.

If you have trouble reading any of this information one of our consultants will gladly walk you through the entire process of immigration testing and refer you to the proper local lab.

Our Process

Immigration DNA Testing

When 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. DNA Diagnostic Center is accredited by the AABB (formerly the American Association of Blood Banks).

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. A full list of providers can be found on the AABB website. If you have trouble finding them, please let us know. 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. Keep a copy on hand for your records as well as a copy to present when requested.

To get started on your procedure, the lab will need your file or case number, the names of the people who are to be tested and their relationships to one another. The lab you choose must follow AABB regulations for immigration DNA testing and will schedule a date to collect your DNA sample in the United States. It’s wise to only use laboratories on the AABB website for this type of test. 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, the lab or your choice will begin immigration DNA testing proceedings. Once the testing is complete, you should receive the results directly to the requested immigration office in the home country and to the USCIS. Be sure to request a copy to you, the petitioner, for your case and records.
