Immigration DNA Testing

Get proof you need for the immigration process

DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC) has multiple AABB-accredited facilities capable of processing immigration cases. The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) recommends DNA testing to prove biological relationships for many who have submitted form I-130 (or others).

Immigration DNA testing has proven to help expedite the immigration-application approval process.

DDC makes the DNA testing portion of the immigration process simple for our clients. Our specialized Immigration Team has worked with immigration agencies, embassies, petitioners, and beneficiaries around the world for more than 20 years, so you can trust us with this important step.

We provide DNA-testing results for:


USCIS Requests


Embassies Overseas


Consular Report of Births Abroad


Paternity, Maternity, and Siblings


Immigration Visa Applications


Other Relatives

How It Works:

1.WE TAKE CARE OF STARTING THE PROCESS FOR YOU:Once you receive paperwork from USCIS or other agency requesting DNA evidence of family relationship, it’s time to get started. DDC asks you to send/fax a copy of the USCIS paperwork and provide contact info for all test participants

2. WE INITIATE DNA-COLLECTION ARRANGEMENTS:We handle communications with the foreign-country embassy or panel physician and send all documentation to them. They then arrange for DNA collection there while we make a DNA appointment for you here in the U.S.

3.VIEW RESULTS:Once all samples are received at DDC, a results report is generated in 2-9 working days. We then send the legally defensible (chain-of-custody) test results and a clear explanation of the results to the proper immigration authorities and the U.S. petitioner.
