Our Tests in Comparison to Government / NHS Tests
The government has prohibited the use of NHS tests for foreign travel purposes. In contrast, our tests are being specifically catered to travellers going abroad. We provide fit-to-fly certificates with negative tests and supply results one day after the test.
How is an RT-PCR test different?
The RT-PCR test is exactly like the standard PCR tests, except for the additional step called ‘reverse transcription’.
While all countries recognize results from RT-PCR tests (including those that request PCR tests), some countries specifically request it and do not accept the standard PCR tests.
What is a PCR Test?
Polymerase chain reaction or PCR tests are used to detect current COVID-19 infections in people. The test involves extracting a subject’s samples from the nose and throat using swabs and looking for COVID-19 RNA in them.
Why do I need a PCR test for travel?
Due to the pandemic persevering and increase in case caused by mutated strains, almost every country has made pre-travel PCR tests mandatory for foreign visitors.
When should I book the test?
It depends on which country you are visiting and what their entry requirement states. While some countries only accept tests taken within 72 hours of departure, this is not the standard. The required time window varies depending on the country.
It is best to refer to the government’s website for the latest entry requirements before booking a test with us.
Will I get a fit-to-fly certificate?
Yes, we supply fully attested and verified fit-to-fly certificates with every negative PCR test. The documents contain a full analysis of the test and recognized by all countries and airlines.
Can I buy tests, rather than coming to the Brighton clinic for testing?
Of course, you can.
You can order our at-home PCR test kits here.
How reliable is the test?
Experts consider PCR tests to be the gold standard when it comes to COVID-19 detection methods.
Will the test tell me if I’ve recently had the virus?
No, PCR tests can only recognize current infections.
You can get our immune response test to check for a previous infection.

What should I do if I receive a positive result?
If your test comes back positive, you will not be permitted to travel, and you must enter self-isolation right away.
You may get in touch with the NHS online for advice on what to do during the self-isolation period.
