DNA Testing for Immigration

We understand the critical role that DNA testing plays in reuniting family members and relatives who wish to immigrate into the UK. Our DNA testing services provide robust evidence of biological relationships, which are often required by UK immigration authorities to confirm familial ties between a sponsor and a relative from overseas.

Why DNA Testing is Required for UK Immigration

Immigration to the UK can require proof of relationship in cases where official documents and other forms of evidence are insufficient or unavailable. This is particularly relevant in family visa applications, including spouse visas, fiancé visas, and visas for dependent children and other relatives. DNA testing provides a clear, scientific method of establishing these crucial relationships unequivocally. AttoLife offers a full range of DNA tests that are admissible and respected by the UK Home Office. Our tests include but are not limited to:

Paternity and Maternity Tests:

To establish a parent-child relationship.

Sibling Tests:

To determine full-sibling or half-sibling relationships.

Grandparentage Tests:

To verify a biological relationship with one’s grandparents.
