DNA Testing and Immigration to the United States
During the immigration application process, a petitioner may be requested to supply additional evidence of a claimed family relationship. To obtain this evidence, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) center or U.S. embassy may suggest DNA testing, which has become recognized around the world as the most accurate and definitive method of verifying biological relationships.
The USCIS center or U.S. embassy may or may not suggest a specific laboratory to perform the DNA testing. DDC can provide the DNA testing services you need.
We have a special Immigration Department that is dedicated to serving our immigration clients' needs. This team has worked with immigration agencies, petitioners, and beneficiaries around the world for more than a decade.
We have the largest network of sample collection sites in the world. Your sample collection appointment will be as convenient for you as possible.
