Immigration DNA Testing
Mednovations immigration DNA testing can be a useful and extremely accurate tool for individuals needing to verify a family relationship. When documented proof is unavailable, the U.S. Department of State may require immigration DNA testing to prove that the claimed relationship exists.
Immigration DNA testing can verify:
- Full or half siblingship
When accuracy is essential and precision matter, don’t just trust any lab to process your immigration DNA test. An accredited laboratory must process DNA testing for immigration purposes. Here at Mednovations, we work exclusively with AABB-accredited labs to ensure your DNA test is appropriately handled and accepted by the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
Immigration DNA testing may allow you to obtain:
- Immigrant visa
- U.S. citizenship petitions
- Establishing relationship to qualify for immigration benefits
- Applications for U.S. passports
- Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBA)
DNA Testing Method Used
When collecting a specimen for immigration DNA testing, the preferred method is by buccal (cheek or mouth) swab. The buccal technique is a non-invasive and painless DNA test that utilizes a long cotton swab to collect cells from the inside of an individual’s cheek or mouth. The buccal swab allows for lab technicians to efficiently collect and ship the immigration DNA test without jeopardizing accuracy. When comparing the buccal DNA testing method to a DNA blood test the results are equivalent.
Immigration DNA testing is the only non-documentary way that is acceptable for proof of a biological relationship. However, completing an immigration DNA test is entirely voluntary. Once your DNA test has been completed, the U.S. Embassy or Consulate will contact you to set up an appointment.
DNA Testing Costs
The cost of immigration DNA testing will be paid by the individual requiring proof of relation before the applicant’s embassy appointment. Different factors can affect the overall cost of your immigration DNA test, such as the number of individuals being testing and types of relationships being tested for. However, Mednovations services are priced at – or below – those of the big-box labs. Therefore, offering customers an affordable option for completing their immigration DNA tests.
