A Fit to Fly certificate is required by most airlines and countries.

The Covid-19 PCR test is designed to determine if you are currently infected with Covid-19. Most countries are now asking for a negative PCR test (fit-for-travel).  This test involves taking a swab sample and sending the sample to the lab for investigations. The results are emailed to you with a certificate. 

How does the PCR Test service work?

You can purchase the PCR test kit from our clinic for £109. The test kit has all the instructions you need to take a swab sample. You can then post your sample to the Lab directly using the free return label included in the kit. Your results and certificate will be sent to your email within 24 hours after the Lab receives the Sample.  

If you can’t pick up the kit from our clinic, we can post it to you for an extra charge.

Please see our FAQ’s for more information.

Please determine when you need your test done. Work out the time as the test centre will issue
the test result time based on when you did the test.

Please make sure you don’t eat, drink, chew gum, smoke or brush your teeth at least 20 minutes
before you take the mouth and nasal swab test. Doing this can contaminate your sample, which
may result in it needing a retest and therefore, delaying your result.

Disclaimer: If test results are delayed due to any issue  with postal service or at the Lab or results are inconclusive, as we are independent of Lab, we cannot be liable for any late or inconclusive results.
Recommended – We recommend having adequate travel insurance in case of an ‘inconclusive’ result (frequency approx 1 in 500)
