 As we understand it, performing a DNA test for the purposes of submitting evidence to a USCIS Office is voluntary. It should be noted, Although testing is voluntary. A DNA test is the most accurate option for evidence to prove a biological relationship.

Although there are DNA Testing companies that make claims that your results are guaranteed. As we understand it, USCIS may take your DNA test result into consideration towards making a determination on issuing a visa in your case. In other words, there is no guarantee that USCIS will issue a visa based on your DNA test result alone. I am sure there are other factors outside of DNA testing that help USCIS issue a visa. That being said, DNA testing is considered the best and reliable option currently to help prove a biological relationship. Which is probably why immigration suggests this as an option. It is also important to remember that immigration will only consider DNA test results from a DNA parentage lab that is accredited by the AABB only.

Yes. Once you begin the testing and have your sample collected here in the U.S. The will be responsible for shipping a request for DNA sample collection test kit to U.S. Embassy to your home country. Once the Embassy receives the kit. The Embassy will be responsible for coordinating the sample collection appointment for your child not the DNA laboratory. After your child’s samples are collected.
