Our Tests in Comparison to Government / NHS Tests
Tests booked through the Government website are not for recreational travel purposes and do not supply you with a fit-to-fly certificate. Unnecessary strain is being put on the government system by those attempting to book tests for travel.
Our in-clinic tests are for travel purposes only. If you have COVID-19 symptoms you should book a test via the Government website or buy a test from our online shop.
What is a PCR Test?
PCR is a laboratory-based test that uses a nasal/throat swab sample to detect RNA related to coronavirus.
Why do I need a PCR test for travel?
For popular destinations you must produce evidence of results from a test taken within 72-hours of your flight. These restrictions apply to all arrivals.
In the UK you cannot use public transportation if you have the virus or if you have the symptoms.
Our testing service will provide you with your results via email within 48 hours. The results email (if negative) can be used to enter Category B countries.
Therefore, getting tested is essential for anyone planning on traveling overseas.
