Is immigration DNA testing mandatory?

As we currently understand it, performing a DNA test and submitting it as evidence to immigration is not mandatory. But, immigration (USCIS, Passport Agencies and, Embassies) highly recommend that your family utilizes this option. Remember, DNA testing is currently the best option to provide proof of determining a biological relationship between a parent and a child that an immigrant family can submit as evidence to immigration.


Performing a DNA test for immigration purposes is a recommended option that immigration officers provide families who lack submitting their primary evidence. In the future, DNA testing in the future may be a mandatory part of the process but for now, it is a strongly suggested option from immigration.
