  • Ordering Tests from Europe

    Our project was just contacted by a male from England and I am wondering if he will have any trouble purchasing a test from the FTDNA website to be delivered to England so that he can provide a saliva sample.

    Import from non EU countries to EU countries will get tax added to the value of import. The amount of tax probably depends of the actual country.

      The import duty is high as it is based on the cost of the DNA test and not the fact that you receive a couple of tubes with fluid to hold the samples and the instruments to take the cells from the mouth. I ordered two tests from National Geographic and paid about £35 in duty which is ridiculous. If you are sending anything to the States you have to fill out a form to say what the package contains and it's important to state that the DNA sample is not contaminated.
