As the fully vaccinated populace around the world increases, more countries are allowing the use of antigen tests for pre-travel screening, including the UK.
The tests supplied by VIVO Clinic are ACON Biotech Flowflex SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test kits. These tests passed the Public Health England assessment in February 2021 and the EU assessment in July 2021.
Using antigen tests for foreign travel lends a much-needed measure of convenience to the whole affair. Antigen tests are self-testing and can be done at home. Moreover, you will get a result within 15 minutes.
We recommend acquiring the antigen kits for pre-travel testing at least a week prior to departure. This way, you can take them 2-3 days before your flight and upload the test reading to our website via the provided secure link. We will register your result and send you the fit-to-fly certificate within 12 hours.
What is a rapid antigen test?
Antigen tests, or lateral flow tests, are a COVID-19 detection method that can yield almost instant results. These tests look for SARS-CoV-2 antigen in a person’s samples to determine whether they have a COVID-19 infection.
Do you offer an in-clinic service?
We have over 30 clinics across the UK. Book an antigen test online and get a fit to fly certificate within 1 hour.
Book an antigen test at the following locations:

How is the rapid antigen test performed?
Antigen tests are conveniently self-testing, so you can use them on yourself from the comfort of your own home.
Always read the enclosed instructions carefully before you perform the test. You will be required to use the swab in the kit to collect samples from your nose. Then, put the sample in the tube with the solution. Then pour a few drops of the solution mixed with your samples into the cassette. After that, you only have to wait 15 minutes before the result appears.
Can antigen tests be used as Day 2 and Day 8 tests?
Antigen tests can only be used as pre-travel tests for visiting countries that permit it and for returning to the UK.
At the time of writing this, only PCR tests can be used as Day 2 and Day 8 tests.
If you are required to use them, you must book or purchase them prior to your return to the UK.
Are fit-to-fly certificates provided for negative antigen tests?
Once you have a conclusive reading on the antigen test cassette, you will have to take a photo of the cassette and your passport’s ID page and upload it to our website.
We will send you a QR-code fit-to-fly certificate via email within 24 hours.
Do all countries accept antigen test results for pre-travel verification?
As more progress is being made with vaccination programmes worldwide, many governments now permit the use of antigen tests for pre-travel verification.
However, many countries still prefer results from PCR tests when it comes to foreign travel. We strongly recommend that you always check the entry requirements of your destination country on the government’s website before purchasing any COVID-19 travel tests.
