Immigration DNA testing

Universal Genetics / Advanced Genetics was founded on providing DNA testing for Immigration purposes. Unlike other laboratories, our primary focus was built around immigration DNA testing. Immigration DNA testing is our specialty, and we have three full service AABB-Accredited laboratories located in the busiest ports of entry for immigrants (Los Angeles, New York City, and Miami). You will not find another laboratory who is as knowledgeable or as experienced as Universal Genetics / Advanced Genetics for immigration testing.

Our laboratories perform DNA tests to prove paternity, maternity, siblingship, grand parentage, avuncular or other kinship for immigration purposes. DNA Testing is often an essential step to finalize the immigration process for family members that wish to immigrate to the United States. When other evidence or paper documentation (e.g. birth certificate, school records, etc.) are considered insufficient or inconclusive to prove a biological relationship by the USCIS, the Passport Agency, or the U.S. Embassy, a DNA test performed by an AABB-Accredited laboratory like Universal Genetics / Advanced Genetics may be requested to prove the biological relationship between a petitioner and a beneficiary.

Universal Genetics / Advanced Genetics has 3 full service AABB-Accredited laboratories with Collection Sites that can coordinate DNA sample collections in almost all places throughout the United States and many places in the world. Our years of experience, focus and specialization in Immigration DNA Testing makes us the ideal choice to handle your Immigration DNA test from beginning to end. We follow strict AABB Guidelines for the collection, handling, and testing of your DNA samples. We also strictly follow the procedures for U.S. Immigration DNA Testing as established in the Foreign Affairs Manual published by the U.S. Department of State.
