Why use DNA testing for immigration?

DNA testing is a powerful tool for verifying biological relationships between family members and can prove invaluable when used as supporting evidence for citizenship or naturalisation applications.

In most instances, individuals applying for citizenship or naturalisation can prove their relationship to family members using birth certificates, marriage certificates or other documentation.

However, there are occasions where a person might not have access to these documents for a variety of reasons. In these cases, a DNA test can provide vital evidence to support an application or appeal.

What samples are required for immigration DNA testing?

All our DNA tests are performed in the same way, using cheek (buccal) swabs to analyse and compare DNA markers (loci) from individuals and determine the likelihood of two or more people sharing a biological relationship.

Samples for immigration DNA testing are collected under strict chain of custody conditions to ensure the samples are collected from the right people, in the correct way. This guarantees the DNA test results are admissible in court.

Our specially-trained network of sample collectors follow strict chain of custody procedures during sample collection, which is crucial for court-approved DNA tests.

Plus, we can arrange an appointment for sample collection at a time to suit you at home, at the office, or elsewhere.

We also offer FREE sample collection for legally-instructed DNA tests at our Dublin walk-in centre.
