Visa denied, DNA requested

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am a US Citizen and my daughter is in Philippines. We have completed all the steps for her visa to come to USA to love and at the interview they requested a DNA test to prove maternity. The DNA tests are done and the embassy has the result.

1. If they requested a DNA test at the interview and that is the email instruction we received, would that be the same instruction on the instructions document they said she would have received at the interview? They never issued her any instructions.

2. How long does it normally take for the US Embassy in Manila to render a decision?

Thank you and everyone have a good holiday.

Hi, I am in the same situation right now. My son went on his interview at Manila US Embassy last June 5th 2017 and maternity DNA was requested and they said they will call/email me for instructions but its been a week already and I still haven't received any emails or calls from them. How long did it take for you to recieve the DNA instructions? Is it by email, mail, or call? 


Can you give an update regarding your DNA situations. How long was the whole process? Is your child here now in the US? 


Thank you for anwering.

Hi, how was the DNA test? Does your son get approved? Please share your experience. I hope to hear from you.  Thank you.

Today June 27, my son is currently at Manila US Embassy for the collection of his DNA. 

3 weeks had passed since his interview and I still have not receive any emails from US embassy regarding the DNA request but I went ahead to one of accredited immigration lab here in San Diego I paid $620 and they mailed right away the my sons DNA kit to manila US embassy. St Luke's is still requiring us to forward them the DNA request email from US embassy as soon as we receive it. Tommorrow I will go to the accredited lab that assisting us for my own DNA collection.
