Same or next day DNA immigration results

At AlphaBiolabs we understand that with immigration cases and appeals the need to meet deadlines is incredibly important; this is why we provide next day immigration testing as standard.*

This is the fastest DNA immigration testing in the UK. We can even provide you with same day results if required.

This also means that we provide the most competitively priced DNA immigration testing services; most other companies would only provide this express service at an extra cost.

When you combine this with our free sample collection service at our Walk in Centres, you could save a further £165, meaning even greater savings.

Furthermore, our Walk in Centres are convenient and flexible as they do not require an appointment. You can pop in anytime (subject to opening days and times) to have your samples collected free of charge.

We understand DNA immigration testing

DNA testing is a powerful tool for identifying family relationships. When this is used to determine the relationship of the family members of a UK citizen, it becomes invaluable in supporting immigration cases.

Sometimes families become separated due to political circumstances or even war. Family members can come to live permanently in the UK if they are a dependent relative of someone who is already a permanent resident.

Non-UK citizens can apply for permission to settle permanently in the UK. Get in touch if you are aged 18 or over and are a parent, grandparent, brother, sister, son or daughter of a British citizen or person settled in the UK.

If someone is applying for British citizenship the UK Visas and Immigration service may ask for a DNA test to prove that there is a family relationship between the two parties. This DNA test must follow a strict chain of custody to be admissible in a UK court or immigration hearing.

The Legal Aid Agency has produced a range of information to assist individuals in establishing whether their case is eligible for Legal Aid funding and this can be accessed at the following website (legal aid checker). We recommend you use this as a starting point before embarking on the complex process of applying for legal aid for your immigration application.
