AABB-Accredited DNA Testing Process
Submit your USCIS paperwork
To get started, send us the written request for DNA evidence of a biological relationship that you received from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or US embassy.
You can send this letter to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at 1-877-714-6356.
Collect DNA Samples
Our team will promptly arrange DNA sample collection for both domestic and international participants.
For participants in the US, our team will reach out to you to schedule a DNA sample collection appointment at a nearby location.
For participants outside the US, we will send a testing kit to the specified embassy or consulate. The embassy or consulate will then contact the participants directly to arrange a sampling appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a Legal DNA Immigration test?
Immigration DNA testing refers to the process of conducting a paternity, maternity, or kinship test upon the request of governing bodies such as the U.S. Embassy, Department of Homeland Security, or United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to confirm biological relationships between family members in immigration cases.
When applying for a U.S. passport, a U.S. Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), or a U.S. immigrant visa, a consular officer or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may recommend Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) testing between family members when applicants have been unable to establish to the consular officer’s or USCIS official’s satisfaction that a required biological parent-child relationship exists. DNA testing is the most accurate and widely available technology to prove a biological relationship. DNA testing is entirely voluntary and, as such, all costs of testing and related expenses are borne by the applicant and paid to the laboratory in advance.
When do I need an Immigration test?
When applying for a visa and citizenship for your family, you may need to legally verify their familial relationship through a DNA test. The results of this test will be submitted to immigration authorities. It is crucial to choose an accredited laboratory, like Genetrack, which has been accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). All aspects of the immigration testing process, including scheduling the appointment, should be handled directly by the AABB-accredited laboratory, rather than a third-party.
What is an immigration DNA test?
An immigration DNA test is a test conducted by an AABB-accredited laboratory that is recognized and accepted by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as proof of a biological relationship. You may need immigration DNA testing if you are applying for a US passport, a US Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), or a US immigrant visa, and there is insufficient evidence to prove the biological relationship.
How much does immigration DNA testing cost?
The cost of immigration DNA testing varies depending on the number of people being tested and where everyone is located. Please contact us directly for a personalized quote by filling out our online quote form or contacting us by phone or email. Our team will respond within 24 hours with a personalized quote.
What is the DNA letter issued by USCIS?
The DNA letter is a letter issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) suggesting DNA testing to support a claim of a biological family relationship for immigration and citizenship applications. Our laboratory requires this letter to initiate the immigration DNA testing process, as it contains specific procedures and requirements for the test that depend on the locations of each family member.
How is the sample collected?
Once you decide to go ahead with immigration DNA testing, our laboratory will schedule an appointment for all parties to go our immigration approved collection site for sample collection. At the appointment, a painless mouth swab is collected by rubbing a swab gently inside the mouth for 15 seconds. Once the laboratory receives your samples, testing is completed in just 1 to 2 business days.
DNA samples are collected by an impartial third-party specimen collector, who will use a sterile buccal swab to gently scrape the inside of the cheek to obtain a DNA sample. The collection process is quick, painless, and safe for individuals of all ages, including infants, children, and adults.
Do all family members need to be present at the same location?
No, the family members involved in the immigration DNA test do not need to be present at the same location. Genetrack has a global network of specimen collectors to collect DNA samples from all over the world. We can coordinate the sample collection process at multiple locations, both within the United States and internationally, to accommodate the needs of your family.
What happens if my family member is located within the United States?
If your family member is located within the United States, we will contact your family member to set up a sample collection appointment at a nearby specimen collection location.
What happens if my family member is located outside of the United States??
If your family member is located outside of the United States, we will send a tamper-proof DNA sample kit with detailed instructions directly to the migration office or consular mission closest to your family member. The migration office or consular mission will contact your family member to schedule an appointment for the collection process, and a migration officer or staff member will be present at the time of collection to ensure the integrity of the sampling procedure.
Is my personal information and test results kept confidential?
Yes, we take the privacy and confidentiality of our clients seriously. All personal information and test results are securely stored and only shared with authorized parties involved in the immigration process.
How long does it take to get results?
Our immigration DNA testing results are available within 1 to 3 business days after we receive all the DNA samples. Once the results are ready, we will provide you with an official copy of the results and send a second official copy directly to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
