If you or someone in your family is interested in immigrating to the United States, you may need a DNA test to show a familial relationship. The immigration process can be confusing and challenging, but proving your family relationship shouldn’t have to be.
DNA testing is a critical step in the immigration process. If the U.S. Embassy or USCIS deems evidence (like a birth certificate) insufficient or inconclusive, a DNA test may be requested to prove a relationship between petitioner and beneficiary.
Many different types of immigration DNA tests can help with the immigration process.
Some typical tests include:
- Maternity DNA – This test verifies DNA matches in legitimate mother-child relationships.
- Paternity DNA – This test verifies DNA matches in legitimate father-child relationships.
- Kinship DNA – A kinship test identifies a legitimate relationship between two or more individuals who claim a biological relationship, such as a niece or nephew/aunt or uncle, child/grandparent.
ARCpoint Labs sends all immigration DNA test cases to AABB-accredited laboratories for analysis, as is required by the US government for all immigration testing. NOTE: We cannot guarantee your visa acceptance through our DNA tests and we recommend that you consult with a U.S. Department of State or your embassy representative to verify which relationships meet the immigration criteria for your situation.
