During the immigration process, a petitioner may be asked to supply additional evidence of a claimed relationship to a beneficiary. As the most conclusive, most trusted method of verifying biological relationships, DNA testing is the service immigration lawyers and individuals turn to when they are asked to supply this evidence.
DDC offers a broad range of DNA testing services to assist clients who need genetic testing for immigration purposes. With these services, we can provide the evidence of biological relationship needed to satisfy the requirements of Entry Clearance Officers (ECOs) at the British High Commission, UK Border Agency, Home Office, British embassies, and the Immigration and Nationality Directorate (IND). Through our years of experience, we have developed comprehensive knowledge of various agencies' and nations' immigration policies and guidelines. We also have developed a wide network of collection sites worldwide.
Our laboratory is certified by the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO) according to the ISO/IEC 17025 standards. This certification satisfies the requirement of the IND, UK embassies, and many immigration offices around the world that an ISO-certified laboratory must perform DNA testing for immigration. We are also accredited by the AABB, the organisation that sets the highest standards in the DNA parentage testing industry. For more information about our laboratory's many accreditations and certifications, please visit the Accreditations page.
DDC has the experience needed to successfully aid immigration clients. We strive to make the DNA testing portion of the immigration application process as stress free and streamlined for them as possible.
