Immigration DNA Testing for Your Clients
DNA tests supply a reliable alternate means of ascertaining place of birth, nationality, or lineage in the event of verifiable documentation being lost or otherwise missing. However, to qualify as proof of birth, nationality, or lineage, immigration DNA testing must follow specific protocols set in place by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
These protocols include, but are not limited to, following an unbroken chain of custody. This includes relaying DNA specimens, filing specimens with an American Association of Blood Banks accredited laboratory for testing, and using only tamper-proof means. Also delineated in USCIS protocol is the proper submission of specimen gathering kits to the US Embassy, or Consulate specific to the country of the applicant seeking to immigrate.
Once the needed supplies are in hand, the applicant’s Embassy, or Consulate, is free to schedules an appointment for DNA collection. Once collected, the specimen is then sent to an appropriate lab for testing. Upon analysis, results are sent to the appropriate agency, either the applicant’s embassy, or the USCIS.
