How does DNA testing for UK immigration work?

When applying for British citizenship, an immigration DNA test to prove a family relationship must follow strict conditions. This enables it to be used in a UK court or immigration hearing.

A DNA test for immigration only requires a cheek cell sample – no blood sample is needed. You can have your samples collected at any address of your choice. Alternatively, you can have your samples collected for free at one of our many walk-in centres across the UK.

Our trained DNA sample collectors maintain a strict chain of custody throughout the process, which allows us to provide court-approved results. This involves checking ID, taking photographs and obtaining signed paperwork from the people being tested. Samples are also sealed with tape to prevent tampering.
