Product description

We appreciate that there are some countries in which people are required to undergo some tests prior to marriage; e.g. Iran, and some African countries. This is a package of tests specially put together to make this easy to do. It consists of:

Blood Test:

  1. STI test: HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Syphilis
  2. Blood cell examination to test for diseases such as sickle cell and thalassaemia

and a Urine Drug Test for *:

  • Amphetamines
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Barbiturates
  • Cannabinoids
  • Cocaine
  • Methadone
  • Opiates 

Why do this test? 

Sickle cell anaemia and beta thalassaemia are inheritable conditions. There is no problem to the person if they are sickle cell or beta thalassaemia carriers and have only one gene for these. However, if a couple who are both carriers have children, then there is a 1 in 4 chance that their children will have sickle cell disease or beta thalassaemia. That will mean life-long medical care and suffering for the affected children. For this reason, many countries ask their citizens to screen for sickle cell anaemia before they get married in order to avoid having affected children. Please note that having alpha thalassaemia does not give any major medical problems. 


Results take 3 working days ** and will be e-mailed to you. Please let us know if you would like a signed, stamped hard copy to be posted to you.

* Please avoid drinking excessive fluids on the day of the test - no more than one glass (250ml) per hour. Otherwise the drug test may not be valid and have to be repeated at an extra cost to the client.

** Indicative timings only. Actual result may be earlier or slightly later.

How does it work?

1. Purchase Pre-marriage package online with full name and date of birth. We can add tests upon request.

2. Attend Patient Reception for your tests at a walk-in laboratory in London.

3. You will recieve a text message notification when your results are ready. They will be sent to you discreetly by email. We can also send a physical copy signed and stamped by a doctor upon request.

How tests are done?

Blood tests are taken by a trained phlebotomist

Date of Birth Requirement

All laboratories need information regarding the client to identify their individual sample.

Without these details, tests cannot be done.

The minimum requirement is the full name and date of birth.

You can enter these details securely in 'Order Special Instructions' at the CART stage of the order process. Alternatively, you can email these to us at:

Photo ID Requirement

All pre-marriage tests need a photo ID to be shown at Patient Reception at the time of the test.

This is because pre-marriage test results are often shown to embassies or other agences.

Only a valid passport or driving license is accepted.

Originals must be shown. No copies or images on a phone.
