Genealogical DNA Testing Around the Globe

Curious which genetic genealogy DNA tests are offered where you live? This list shows which companies sell tests in which countries around the world. The companies in the table are listed, left-to-right, in order of their database sizes (but see this post for 23andMe versus Family Tree DNA, a.k.a. FTDNA). LivingDNA does not currently offer relative matching; they are included here because they plan to do so in the future.

The countries are listed alphabetically. If your country is not listed, see the last row in the table (Other Countries). You can link directly to each company from the header row of the table to confirm availability and to purchase. (Note: I earn a small commission if you purchase through the links in this post. The cost is the same for you. Click here for more information.)

    1. FTDNA, MyHeritage, and LivingDNA will ship to China. There is also a new company called WeGene that focuses on the Chinese market. Like LivingDNA, they do not provide relative matching yet but plan to do so in the future. I will add them to table if I can find a reference for where they sell tests.

  1. I thought that France and Germany had passed laws prohibiting DNA testing period. So is it simply that people in those countries can have a test shipped to them and return it to the US for processing? Are there are any French or German companies that do DNA testing?
