Immigration DNA Relationship Testing for Passport Applications, Visa Applications, and Immigration Appeals

Overview of the Immigration DNA-Testing Process at DDC

Following is a brief overview of the immigration DNA testing process at DNA Diagnostics Centre for NON- passport applications.

  1. An immigration solicitor or private client provides an instruction to DNA Diagnostics Centre via the online form on this page, email, fax, letter or phone call. The instruction should state the type of relationship to be established: full names, dates of birth,contact information of all parties involved in the test, and any relevant hearing-date information. Contact details for the general practitioner (GP) should also be given unless the clients wish to use one of DNA Diagnostics Centre’s collection sites or our mobile collection service
  2. When we have all this information, one of our specialist Immigration test advisors provides you with a clear breakdown of all costs involved in your testing
  3. The immigration team at DNA Diagnostics Centre dispatches kits to the clients’ GPs or to our own collection sites. For family members who are overseas, we have a global network of experienced sample collectors to assist with DNA sample collections.
  4. Family members provide a DNA sample consisting of a simple, painless mouth swab. Each person must present a passport-sized photo to the sample collector and, if they are over 16 years of age, also a government- issued photo-ID document.
    Acceptable forms of ID include:

    – Passport
    – Biometric residence permit
    – Identity card
    – Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) card
    – National Entitlement Card (NEC)
    – Photo driving licence
    Everyone aged under 16 years of age must provide a photo ID document if they have one. If they don’t, they can use an official document issued by their national authority that includes their name and date of birth, such as their birth certificate.

  5. Once the samples are sent to our laboratory, we perform the necessary testing.
  6. When the testing is complete, we send your solicitor or you the DNA test results and any required supporting documentation. If the test is for a Passport Application we can also send results directly to the Passport Office with all supporting documentation. DDC is the preferred HMPO tester for passport cases, so you can be confident that your results will be accepted as part of your application.
