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 a Canadian Embassy abroad or through a Citizenship and Immigration Canada office within Canada. Orchid PRO-DNA's testing laboratory is a government-approved vendor for DNA immigration testing due to its accreditation with the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).
In order to conduct a test, painless cheek swab samples are collected from all the parties, including those in Canada and abroad. Orchid PRO-DNA works closely with the Canadian Embassies in more than 70 countries abroad to ensure that the samples are collected as quickly as possible. Appointments within Canada can be made within 24 hours on a nation-wide basis. Orchid PRO-DNA also facilitates the secure and timely shipment of all samples to our facility in Canada.
Orchid PRO-DNA recognizes that the immigration of a family member to Canada is extremely important and understands the importance of an accurate, confidential and timely service.
With a turnaround time of 5-7 days from the date of receipt of the last sample, you will not have to wait a long time to get an answer. The results will be sent to the Sponsor by mail and to the Canadian government by email and courier.
We are ready to guide you through this process when you are ready to proceed.
