Immigration DNA

Obtain the evidence you are required of for the immigration process


DNA Diagnostics Center-EDC is the leading laboratory for AABB Immigration DNA testing in the US. EDC ensures a full range of services starting from the first phone call, as well as prompt results and DNA collection coordination, with more than twenty years of Immigration testing experience.

The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) suggests performing DNA testing to prove biological relationships for many who have submitted form I-130 (or other forms). It has been proven that Immigration DNA testing helps to expedite the whole Immigration Application approval process.

You will only need to contact us by phone and make a partial payment and our Immigration Case Managers will quickly coordinate DNA collection at the foreign embassy of the tested family member. EDC is the most experienced laboratory in DNA testing, furthermore, it offers over 3,500 collection locations in each of 50 states and in 165 countries.


Getting Started


EDC ensures that DNA testing for the immigration process is simple for our clients. Our specialized Immigration Team has worked with immigration agencies, embassies, petitioners and beneficiaries all around the world for more than twenty years.

Requirements for AABB

  • EDC organises the petitioner’s appointment in the U.S. and collects petitioner’s DNA sample for further testing
  • EDC delivers a DNA collection kit to the U.S. Embassy / USCIS office in home country
  • S. Embassy / USCIS office collects the beneficiary’s DNA sample and sends the samples back to EDC testing laboratory

As soon as the testing is finished, EDC sends the DNA testing results directly to the requesting Immigration office


The First Three Steps

  1. You will receive paperwork from USCIS or other authority requesting DNA evidence of relationship between the petitioner and beneficiary
  2. Then you should call EDC to initiate DNA testing, providing contact information for each individual to be tested.
  3. Thereafter you should send or fax to EDC a copy of the USCIS or other paperwork requesting testing.


Then we will send information about the beneficiary and a DNA sample collection kit to the respective U.S. embassy or to panel physician in the foreign country. It is up to the embassy or panel physician to arrange the beneficiary’s sample collection appointment in the respective foreign country (this could take a longer period of time). In case the petitioner resides within the United States, EDC will organise sample collection at one of our many convenient locations.

Thereafter, the sample collection sites will return the samples to EDC testing laboratory. As soon as all the necessary samples are received, we will perform the DNA testing within 2-9 working days, depending on the type of test requested.

We will send the legally defensible (chain of custody) test results and a clear explanation about the results obtained to the respective immigration authorities and the U.S. petitioner. (Please remember that we can only release the test results only when the balance amount has been fully paid.)
