The Immigration DNA Testing Process

The following steps outline the DNA testing portion of the immigration process. Once you complete the three steps listed below we will complete the DNA testing and issue the test result paperwork.

Receive paperwork from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)/U.S. embassy that requests more evidence of the claimed relationship between the petitioner and beneficiary.

Fax a copy of the USCIS/U.S. embassy paperwork to DNA Services of America @ +1-337-769-1807

This Is What Happens Next

Once we have the immigration paperwork, the tested parties’ contact information, and partial or full payment for the test we will send the beneficiary’s information and a DNA sample collection kit to the appropriate U.S. embassy or panel physician in the foreign country. The embassy or panel physician will arrange the beneficiary’s sample collection appointment in the foreign country. This may take time due to the limited availability of embassy staff or appointments. DNA Services of America has no control or authority concerning the DNA sample collections abroad but we will notify the embassy or panel physician of any approaching deadlines. For the petitioner within the United States, DNA Services of America will arrange a sample collection at a convenient local location.

The sample collection sites will then return all the samples to DNA Services of America’s partner laboratory. Upon receiving all the needed samples the DNA test will be completed within 3-5 business days. Testing fees vary so please call us at (800) 927-1635 to discuss your particular situation. Also note that additional fees may apply for professional sample collection and for the shipping of supplies, samples, and results. U.S. embassies and panel physicians, if applicable, may also charge you an additional fee which is paid directly to them.

We will send the legally admissible test results and a clear explanation of the results to the proper immigration authorities and to the U.S. petitioner. Please note that we can only release the test results once the balance of your DNA test fee has been paid in full.
