Fit-to-Fly Certificate Explained
Many popular holiday destinations require you to produce a fit-to-fly certificate before being permitted to enter the country. A fit-to-fly certificate is evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test.
Our PCR tests include a fit-to-fly certificate in the form of a results sheet, an example of which can be seen below. Please note, the results must be negative for the results sheet to qualify as a fit-to-fly document. In the interest of expedience, your results sheet is emailed to you directly.
How to get a PCR Test
There are two options for PCR tests. We offer an in-clinic service at several locations across the UK. We also sell PCR tests kits where we send you a swab sample collection kit, you then post/courier the sample to our lab.
