Immigration Application Process Explained

Process for Visa Applications and Appeals:

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; the full names, dates of birth, and 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, we provide you with a clear breakdown of all the costs involved in your testing.
  3. DNA Diagnostics Centre coordinates sample collection appointments and 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 the DNA sample collections.
  4. Once the samples are sent to our laboratory, we perform the necessary testing.
  5. When the testing is complete, we send the solicitor or client the DNA test results and any required supporting documentation.

Process for Passport Applications:

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

  1. You will need to make your application to Her Majesty’s Passport Office before initiating any testing. The Passport Office will then write to you inviting you to undergo a test and specifying where your samples should be collected. In the UK this is usually the Passport Office in London where we hold bi-monthly clinics. For family members overseas this will be a British High Commission or British Embassy.
  2. You will need to contact us with your passport office documentation and we will provide you with a detailed quote. When you are happy to proceed, we will book you into our London clinic and for family overseas, we will courier the kit to the appropriate office.
  3. Once the samples are sent to our laboratory, we perform the necessary testing.
  4. When the testing is complete, we will send the Passport Office and the client the DNA test results and any required supporting documentation.
