Immigration DNA testing is a paternity, maternity or kinship test that is conducted at the request of the U.S. Embassy, Department of Homeland Security, or United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
When should I use an immigration test?
When you need to legally authenticate your family to aid them in obtaining a visa and eventually citizenship. The results will be submitted to the immigration authorities. It is very important that you choose a laboratory, such as LabCorp, that is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). All parts of the immigration testing process, including scheduling the appointment, should be managed by the AABB accredited laboratory and not a third party.
What type of sample is collected in a legal test
The most common sample type is a buccal swab. This sample is collected using a cotton swab that is gently rubbed on the inside of your cheek. Blood samples are also acceptable.
LabCorp is an AABB-Accredited DNA testing laboratory. Our results are accepted for immigration testing purposes.
