There are several different paths that your DNA testing for immigration can take. An ‘average’ DNA testing process is shown; be warned however it can be revised by Homeland Security / USCIS at any time.
You also have the option of taking a DNA test before Homeland Security / USCIS requests it, for example, when a family member is visiting.
This can save you time and money.
