In recent years, a new application for relationship DNA testing has emerged. U.S. Embassies and domestic immigration offices have identified DNA testing as a means to verify claimed biological relationships between immigrant visa applicants and petitioners. Family-based immigrant visa applications are approved through a series of checks, including verification of biological relationship. Our laboratory is AABB accredited and is recognized by all U.S. Embassies and immigration offices.

Set Up an AABB Immigration DNA Test

When the applicant chooses to proceed with DNA testing, he/she must then choose an AABB accredited relationship testing laboratory to perform the test. The applicant or petitioner must contact the laboratory to set up the test, which usually involves submission of the "DNA test request letter" issued by the U.S. Embassy or immigration office.

Collecting Samples and Testing

The petitioner residing in the U.S. will be scheduled for a DNA sample collection appointment at an authorized facility nearest him/her. (Buccal swab samples are generally collected by a non-invasive, painless method). The laboratory will ship a DNA sample collection kit to the U.S. Embassy or appointed panel physician for use in collecting the foreign applicant's DNA samples. All samples are then returned to the AABB accredited laboratory for testing. Test turnaround is generally within a week, at which point, the original test report is submitted from the AABB accredited laboratory directly to the office that issued the DNA test request. (The test participants may receive a copy of the report).

Immigration DNA Testing Outcome

If the test legitimizes the claimed biological relationship, an immigrant visa will likely be issued. If it does not, however, then the application will likely be denied. For this reason, it is very important that individuals who request testing fully understand the power of DNA. In some cases, applicants and petitioners may not actually be biologically related, but rather are "related" through circumstance, i.e. families formed in refugee camps, foster families, adoptions. In these situations, of course, a DNA test is going to disprove the biological relationship. In the vast majority of cases, however, individuals are biologically related, their immigration DNA test result proves it, and the family is reunited.
