Immigration Testing

DNA Immigration testing is conducted at the request of either the Department of State or Department of Homeland Security. It will provide additional proof of a paternity, maternity or kinship relationship.


How it works

A DNA immigration test is a paternity, maternity or kinship test performed to determine if two or more individuals are biologically related. A DNA immigration test is performed solely at the request of either the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through one of its USCIS offices or the Department of State (DOS), through one of the US Embassies abroad. Orchid Cellmark is a government-approved vendor

In order to conduct a test, painless cheek swab samples are collected from all the parties, including those in the US and abroad. Orchid Cellmark works closely with the US Embassies in more than 100 countries abroad to ensure that the samples are collected as quickly as possible. Appointments within the US can be made within 24 hours on a nation-wide basis. Orchid Cellmark also facilitates the secure and timely shipment of all samples to our accredited DNA testing laboratory in the US.

Orchid Cellmark recognizes that the immigration of a family member to the US is extremely important and understands the importance of an accurate, confidential and timely service.

With a rapid turnaround time you will not have a long wait for your results. Your results will be either 0.00% or 99.99% or greater in routine tests (paternity or maternity). The results will be sent to the Petitioner by mail and to the US government agency by courier.

We are ready to guide you through this process when you are ready to proceed.
