About our immigration DNA test
At easyDNA we offer DNA testing for Immigration purposes at our ISO 17025 accredited lab, which can be submitted to the Bureau of Immigration (BOI).
We offer a wide range of testing methods available for establishing a biological relationship for immigration, which include both paternity, and maternity testing. However other relationships can be proved between Siblings, Aunts/Uncles, Nieces/Nephews and Grandparents through our Relationship Testing.
There are various testing methods available for proving the existence of a biological relationship for immigration purposes. The most commonly required DNA test is either maternity or paternity testing. However, an immigration DNA test can also be used to prove relationships between siblings, aunts/uncles, nieces/nephews and grandparents.
What is the procedure for immigration testing?
We will first need to determine who exactly is involved in the DNA test and where each test participant lives. We can then process your order and send a sample collection kit to the chosen doctor (for ex. your family GP); the doctor will be responsible for taking the DNA samples and filling in the necessary paperwork. The doctor’s fee is not included in the cost of the immigration test.
Immigration testing outside India
EasyDNA offers cross-border immigration testing. This means we are able to organise the test when test participants live in different countries. EasyDNA operates through a large network of international offices and can thus, co-ordinate such tests efficiently. For more information about sending kits to different locations, click here.
For people being tested outside of India, collection is normally arranged through the nearest Indian embassy or consulate and the kit will be sent directly from the lab to the embassy (Please note that a fee may be payable in the local currency to the embassy for sample collection and this is not included in the cost of your immigration DNA test). The embassy or consulate will have a small fee for the sample collection.
