Posted on February 22, 2017

Fast Immigration DNA ResultsSo, you’ve completed DNA testing for immigration purposes, and your loved ones overseas will be going into the US Embassy for their interview. Boston Paternity’s case managers work closely with our clients and have built lasting relationships with Embassies around the world. That said, we have gathered information we love to pass along to our customers, including what they shouldn’t bring with them to their local US Embassy.

  • Food and drinks
  • Electronics of any kind
    • Including but not limited to cell phones, tablets, laptops, cameras, USBs, etc.
  • Sharp objects
  • Lighters or similar items
  • Devices with an on/off switch

For the safety and security of all who are in and around the US Embassy, these things must not pass through. Since there are no storage areas in the US Embassy for interviewees’ personal items, all prohibited objects cannot be allowed on the premises. Anyone who attempts to bring these devices will be denied and asked to schedule a new interview appointment at the gate.

To avoid further delays in your immigration visa process, be sure to research and follow all rules unique to the US Embassy you will be visiting. Delays of this nature can significantly impact the time it will take for you to reunite with your family, and could potentially lead to a visa denial.

If you find yourself needing more evidence to prove your biological relation to a relative located outside of the United States after their immigration interview, Boston Paternity suggests investing in our DNA testing services in MA. Our AABB accreditation provides recognized, precise results and will make it that much easier to complete your immigration visa. You will likely rejoin your family faster.
