We understand many families live in different countries. For test participants outside of the UK, samples are collected at a Medical Centre of your choice and depending on the area, we have many Clinics we have worked with numerous times.

In recent years, we have assisted many families with test participants based in Ghana.  We are highly recommended with Ghanaian families and most of our business is on referral from previous customers.

For customers who live in Pakistan we have clinics in Islamabad and Karachi whom we have worked with for over 10 years which we can recommend.  You are also welcome to choose your own medical centre for sample collection in the city of your choice.

For customers who live in South Africa, we have worked with Pathcare Reference Laboratories for many years and we can work with you and them to arrange your sampling appointments, meaning there is no need for you to locate your own sampling clinic. You are welcome to choose your own sampling clinic of course.

Please contact us with your enquiry including if any family member needs samples outside of the UK, and we can give you the total Immigration DNA test price with no hidden fees!
