    Are there any DNA testing company with shipment for Iran?

    Hello. I'm from Iran and interested in testing my DNA but I didn't find any company which ship the DNA kits to Iran. So are there any DNA testing company with shipment for Iran?

    Thanks

    To make the whole thing happen, you need not only the testing company to participate, but also the country you live in.
    Some countries have difficult customs regulations and just two seem to make it impossible.
    FTDNA generally supports testing worldwide, but they include the following in their advice on this page https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/...-destinations/
    There are two countries, Sudan and Iran, whose customs restrictions prevent us from shipping to them.
    (This entry is about 18 months old. The situation may have changed since.)

    In countries where customs authorities can just be difficult, not impossible, discussion with customs authorities by the testing person beforehand and if necessary during the process can help get kits into and out of countries.
    In some countries, testers arrange to have the kit sent to and from a neighbouring country.

    Hopefully some other person has achieved what you are trying to do and will be able to tell you how.

    DISCLAIMER I am not suggesting that you break any of your country's laws. This is merely factual information in response to your question.

    FULL DISCLOSURE There is another company, quite different, that also says they test world wide.
    But it is generally understood that they were/are set up from Israel. That connection may be problematic in dealing with your authorities.

There is an Asian-looking vibe (similar to Central Asians) in my family so I really like to find my genetic admixture to see how much I'm related to my province, other Iranians, and neighboring countries (Afghanistan and Central Asia). If a miracle happens in near future and I could take a DNA test, I will upload my data to this forum.

    Ha! Sounds like a reason for a nice little vacation over the boarder to time with an international shipment. Too bad they don't give you a tracking number to really get things lined up nicely.
