DNA Sampling

At the request of the member states’ governments, IOM collects DNA samples in support of family members wishing to migrate. Studies have shown that unified familes have a better chance of assimilating into a new country.

By collecting DNA samples on behalf of governments, IOM seeks to assist migrants that otherwise would be unable to prove family relationships as supporting documentation for migrants in Vietnam is sometimes missing or unverifiable.

If you have a question about DNA sampling, including applicants who have scheduled a DNA sampling appointment, please use the form below.
