Fit To Fly PCR and Antigen Travel Tests from a UK Government approved provider

For individuals needing to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic some overseas destinations have imposed strict requirements for a negative COVID-19 PCR swab test result before travel. Typically a negative result is required 48-96 hours before leaving the UK. 

Since 1 January 2021 Fit for Overseas Travel Certificates and a negative COVID-19 PCR laboratory test result can only be issued by a Government approved UKAS registered provider such as Medwyn Occupational Health.

How does it work

The PCR test detects the genetic material in the virus called RNA. When the sample reaches the lab, a solution known as a ‘reagent’ is added to it. If there is virus present this reagent starts a ‘chain reaction’ and creates billions of copies of the genetic material in the virus so that there is enough that it can be detected and analysed by scientists to provide a positive result. This test is also known as an RNA, genetic, molecular, viral detection or swab test.

Choosing your appointment date and time

When choosing a COVID-19 PCR appointment check carefully how many hours before departure, or arrival in the destination country you are required to have a negative COVID-19 PCR swab test result. 

For example, if you are due to travel on Saturday at 10:30am and are required to have a negative PCR swab test result 72 hours before departure you should book your appointment after 10:30am on the previous Wednesday. If you need guidance, the UK government travel advice website provides detailed country entry requirement information at www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice.
