When families immigrate to this country, they are required to produce documentation that proves they’re related, such as a birth certificate or school records. But there are times when these aren’t enough for authorities because they may not offer enough proof. In these cases, immigration DNA testing may be required. The person petitioning for immigration would then be tested, along with all beneficiaries who are coming into the country. Normally, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the department that would request an interview for immigration DNA testing. Sometimes the US Passport office will require DNA testing for the process of immigration be completed. This would occur if the documents the petitioner supplied in the interview weren’t sufficient. Other times, the family will voluntarily arrange for the testing to be performed out of an assumption that their paperwork won’t be enough. To find out more about DNA testing, you must use an accredited laboratory. Call Face IT DNA LLC today at 800-349-6233. The laboratory we use to process DNA samples is DDC, DNA Diagnostic Center. All immigration related questions must be referred to them directly. A full list of accredited labs can be found at http://www.aabb.org/sa/facilities/Pages/RTestAccrFac.aspx
When a family is told by the USCIS to get immigration DNA testing done, it’s regarded as a key piece of evidence when it comes to their approval to be allowed to live in the country.
