What is involved with DNA Testing in Sierra Leone?

Those requiring DNA testing in Sierra Leone for immigration applications or appeals should contact DDC immediately to discuss the specific test needed.

Over the last decade, we have helped many families with DNA testing in Sierra Leone by providing DNA tests to confirm if individuals are biologically related and in doing so to assist them in joining family in the United Kingdom or the US.

DDC liaise with an authorised doctor in Sierra Leone who works very closely with us in performing DNA sample collections for those clients based there. The doctor will complete all legal documentation, confirm identification of those being tested and will collect the DNA samples before sending this to our laboratory.

Once all individuals involved in the immigration DNA test are happy to proceed, our immigration staff will confirm all appointments with the doctors and the collection facilities details. The collection of the DNA sample is extremely quick, pain free and simple to take. The doctor will use swabs to collect DNA, these swabs are rubbed against the inside of the cheek, collecting cells that contain the DNA needed to analyse and confirm a biological relationship. Once this procedure is completed by all parties along with official identification and completed paperwork, these will be couriered to the DNA Diagnostics Centres laboratory.

Where are you located?

DDC have a global network of 4,000+ collection centres located across the globe. In Sierra Leone we work alongside an authorised collection facility in Freetown where you can attend to have DNA samples collected.
