Question about dna testing. We did the testing and results are 99.9999. We are waiting for the embassy to cantact us. How long after dna results does it take for them to contact us? I've also been reading that dna test does not guarantee crba and passport. Has anyone ever heard of that. Denying crba even with proven paternity. I'm freaking out because it's been a couple days since I and them received results and they still have not contacted me.

If you do your dna testing here in the us the result is only 4 days but if you did there in st Luke’s Manila Philippines it’s takes 6 weeks for results and very expensive

Embassy required us to do dna testing for my son and embassy confirmed the receipt of the result (99.999%) Feb 5. The lady who called me said its already forwarded to the officer to review the result and approval hopefully by the end of the week. She also mentioned that I have to wait for max of 3 weeks for the delivery of CRBA and passport since it will be printed in US. It's freaking me out now bec i have no notification if its already approved by the officer. Are they gonna call me or not. Also, I checked Air21 tracking # and up to now, its no record found.
