About our immigration DNA test
Immigration DNA testing is used when evidence (e.g, birth certificate, marriage certificates) is insufficient or entirely unavailable to the test participants. Our immigration paternity test is offered through our sister company and results are approved by the United Kingdom Home Office. All testing is conducted according to international standards. Your test will be handled by a laboratory that is ISO 17025 accredited as well as the Ministry of Justice. This accreditation status is a requirement by the UK Home Office for immigration testing. We provide DNA testing for government departments, foreign UK embassies and immigration clients on an international basis. The price of the Immigration DNA Test starts at £289.
There are various testing methods available for proving the existence of a biological relationship for immigration purposes. The most commonly required DNA test is either maternity or paternity testing. However, an immigration DNA test can also be used to prove relationships between siblings, aunts/uncles, nieces/nephews and grandparents.
What is the procedure for immigration testing?
We will first need to determine who exactly is involved in the DNA test and where each test participant lives. We can then process your order and send a sample collection kit to the chosen doctor (for ex. your family GP); the doctor will be responsible for taking the DNA samples and filling in the necessary paperwork. The doctor’s fee is not included in the cost of the immigration test.
Immigration testing outside the UK
EasyDNA offers cross-border immigration testing. This means we are able to organise the test when test participants live in different countries. EasyDNA operates through a large network of international offices and can thus, co-ordinate such tests efficiently. For more information about sending kits to different locations, click here.
For people being tested outside of the United Kingdom, collection is normally arranged through the nearest United Kingdom embassy or consulate and the kit will be sent directly from the lab to the embassy (Please note that a fee may be payable in the local currency to the embassy for sample collection and this is not included in the cost of your immigration DNA test). The embassy or consulate will have a small fee for the sample collection. Want more general information about immigration to the UK? Visit this webpage.
