Available Immigration DNA Testing
If a birth certificate or other paper trail that can be used to substantiate stated biological relationships are absent, immigration DNA testing is a dependable methodology.

Following Federal Requirements in Immigration DNA Testing
Our knowledge and experience in immigration DNA testing means that our organization understands and will follow all required steps by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This process includes:
- Tamper-proof transmission of DNA specimen and paperwork to an American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) accredited laboratory for testing
- Submission of specimen collection kits to the US Embassy or Consulate in the country of the applicant for immigration
- Chain of custody onboarding of participants including collection of identification
- Collection of the sponsor’s DNA at ARCpoint Labs of Columbia, SC
Upon receiving notification, the Embassy or Consulate contacts the beneficiary to make an appointment. After collecting the DNA sample, the specimen is sent to the lab for testing. Results are then sent to the Embassy, Consulate, or USCIS.
We facilitate national and international DNA collections for immigration testing to best serve your clients.
