A PCR swab is the only way to exclude an active COVID infection. A COVID-19 PCR swab is taken from the throat and nose. It is not painful and is a quick procedure. Our experienced nurses and HCAs will take your swab for you.

Airlines and destinations require a laboratory certificate from a laboratory accredited by UKAS and fit to fly certificates from registered clinics. They do not accept results that are texted or emailed without the laboratory report itself attached.

When should I have my test?

Destinations vary in when they would like you to have your test. Some require it within 72 hours and others within 96 hours, for example. You should confirm this with your airline or relevant government website or embassy. When you have this information, we can advise you as to the best time to have your test with us to ensure you receive your result at the right time.

Please note that we do not take responsibility if you make an error in the timing of your test or change your travel plans. We are here to provide a safe and professional test with results by the next day at 8 pm. Our nurses and healthcare assistants cannot advise on travel regulations and test timings so please do speak to your airline in advance of booking your test with us. You are entirely responsible for the timing of your test.

The test checks for an active COVID-19 infection by looking for the virus antigen.


What does the test check for?

The test is a PCR test meaning it can tell you if you have an active coronavirus infection. It cannot tell you if you have had it in the past.

Do I have to take my swab myself?

No way! When you attend the clinic, one of our experienced clinicians will take your swab for you. This improves accuracy and ensures sufficient sample is taken. Your clinician will also verify your details to make sure they match your passport.

We will have your result with you by 8 pm the next day. If you choose our premium service, you will receive your result by 8 am the next day but you must test before 10 am the day before. We will email you your result as a PDF certificate that you can print off yourself. If you do not have access to a printer and a hard copy is required, you can collect your certificate from the clinic on pre-arrangement.
